Giants' Alex Wood goes on IL, injured hamstring fielding bunt

San Francisco Giants left-hander Alex Wood has been placed on the 15-day injured list after he left Tuesday's start early with a strained left hamstring.

In the third inning, Wood planted both feet awkwardly after he came off the mound to field Miami Marlins third baseman Jean Segura's bunt near the third-base line. He threw out Segura by a step but limped around the mound, prompting immediate attention from an athletic trainer and Giants manager Gabe Kapler.

"When I went to field the bunt, my cleat just stuck so hard," Wood said. "It's frustrating. As far as hamstrings, it's not that bad. We'll see how I wake up tomorrow and go from there."

Wood was replaced by Jakob Junis, who took the loss as the Giants dropped their fifth straight game, losing 4-2.

Wood, 32, has not completed five innings in any of his three starts this season. He is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA.

In a corresponding move, the Giants called up right-hander Tristan Beck from Triple-A Sacramento. Beck, 26, has yet to pitch in the majors, spending the past five seasons in the minors. He is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three starts at Sacramento this season.

The Giants also acquired outfielder Cal Stevenson from the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations Wednesday.

San Francisco optioned Stevenson to Triple-A Sacramento and designated left-hander Sam Long for assignment. The Athletics had designated Stevenson, 26, for assignment Friday.

Stevenson made his MLB debut last season and batted .167 (10-for-60) with one RBI in 23 games for Oakland.
