UPDATE (4:33 p.m. PST): The Giants have placed Hunter Pence on the 15-day DL and have purchased the contract of Michael Broadway.
Giants All-Star right fielder Hunter Pence is headed to the disabled list due to left wrist tendinitis, according to reports.
Pence's DL stint will be pushed back to June 3, and he can return to the lineup next week.
In 18 games this season, Pence has hit .282/.329/.451 with two home runs.
To make room on the roster, the Giants will bring up right-handed reliever, Mike Broadway.
Broadway, 28, is 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA in 22 games with 39 strikeouts in 26.2 innings pitched this season. He is a perfect five-for-five in save opportunities.
The Atlanta Braves drafted Broadway in the fourth round of the 2005 MLB Draft.
