SF Giants bring newly acquired utility player onto roster after Rickard goes on injured list

The San Francisco Giants didn’t shake up their roster at the trade deadline, but the club will look a little different as it opens a two-game series in Denver against the Rockies.

After placing outfielder Joey Rickard on the 60-day injured list with left elbow inflammation Monday, the Giants added Daniel Robertson to the 28-man roster on Tuesday.

San Francisco acquired Robertson last week in a trade with the Rays, sending cash to Tampa Bay and cutting beloved outfielder Hunter Pence to clear a 40-man roster spot for Robertson, who had been designated for assignment by the Rays.
