Giants put SS Brandon Crawford on IL with strained forearm

ATLANTA -- All-Star shortstop Brandon Crawford was put on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants on Sunday because of a strained left forearm.

San Francisco made the move retroactive to Saturday, when Crawford was held out of a 6-5 loss to Atlanta.

Rookie outfielder Luis Matos was recalled by the Giants from Triple-A Sacramento.

Crawford, 36, is hitting a career-low .194 with six homers and 32 RBIs in 77 games this season. He was an All-Star in 2015, 2018 and 2021.

Matos, 22, entered Sunday hitting .241 with a .306 on-base percentage and nine RBIs in 50 games for the Giants this season. He started in left field and delivered two hits, including a solo home run -- his second homer of the season -- in a 4-3 victory.
