Renteria wraps up Triple-A rehab stint
SAN FRANCISCO -- As planned, Edgar Renteria's Minor League injury rehabilitation assignment will indeed be a short stop.Renteria is expected to return to the Giants after Triple-A Fresno's game Tuesday night against Portland -- only his second rehab outing. On Monday, the 15-year veteran shortstop went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a walk in a 6-3 triumph over Portland. Assuming that Renteria will immediately leave the 15-day disabled list, where he was sent with a strained right hamstring, might be risky. "He'll join us tonight but it's not certain whether he'll be activated," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday. Though Renteria is batting .326 in 23 games, the Giants have been happy with the performance of their existing infield and have no desire to disrupt that combination. Bochy reiterated that the status of infielder-outfielder Mark DeRosa (left wrist), who's considering surgery that might end his season, could be announced Wednesday.
Hopeful Wellemeyer resumes throwing
SAN FRANCISCO -- Right-hander Todd Wellemeyer threw for the first time since straining his right quadriceps last Thursday at Cincinnati and expressed optimism about leaving the 15-day disabled list on June 26, the first day he's eligible for activation."As long as my arm's in tune," Wellemeyer said Tuesday. "I'm trying to make sure everything stays where it needs to be -- not overwork something, then underwork something." Wellemeyer, who hurt himself while sprinting to first base in an unsuccessful attempt to beat a double-play relay, played catch on flat ground. The Giants' No. 5 starter said that though his leg has improved each day, he strives not to overdo his activity lest he aggravate his injury. "The key is to know when to be able to get after it," Wellemeyer said. "If you try to jump it, try to get a little too quick, you're going to end up doing the same thing."
