SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants have activated outfielder Carlos Beltran from the 15-day DL, manager Bruce Bochy announced Tuesday. Beltran is available for the series opener against San Diego but is not in the lineup.

No corresponding roster move has been announced. Those details will be updated as soon as they become available.

Outfielder Nate Schierholtz is a primary candidate to land on the DL. He's been battling a sore foot after fouling a ball of it in the eighth inning of the Aug. 15 game in Atlanta.

Tuesday, Schierholtz was wearing a protective boot on the injured food and he told reporters that an MRI and CT scan performed Monday revealed a "crack."

In 11 games with the Giants, Beltran is hitting .244 with no home runs and two RBI. He was placed on disabled list on Aug. 8 with a strained hand. He was injured during an Aug. 7 at-bat against the Pirates and was forced to leave the game.

The Giants acquired the slugger in a late July trade with the Mets that sent promising pitcher Zack Wheeler to New York.

Quinton Patton signed with the Jets on Thursday, the team announced.

The 49ers selected the wide receiver in the fourth round (128th overall) of the 2013 draft.

He caught just three passes in each of his first two seasons in San Francisco.

In 2015, he registered 30 catches for 394 yards and one touchdown.

Last season, he recorded 408 receiving yards on 37 receptions.

In the 49ers Week 14 loss to the Jets, Patton caught four passes for 31 yards.

Patton visited New York last weekend.

Report: If Joerger not available, Kings likely would have hired Ewing

On May 7, 2016, the Grizzlies fired Dave Joerger.

Two days later, the Kings hired Joerger.

If he had not become available, Sacramento likely would have tabbed Patrick Ewing as their head coach, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ewing is currently the associate head coach of the Hornets.

He has been on Charlotte's staff since 2013.

Before that, he was an assistant coach with the Magic for six seasons.

After retiring from the NBA following the 2001-02 season, he was an assistant with Washington for one season before joining the Houston Rockets.

Ewing was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2008.
