The Giants placed closer Brian Wilson on the disabled list, and called up RHP Steve Edlefsen from Triple-A Fresno, the team announced Sunday morning.

Wilson hasn't pitched since Aug.15 when he blew a save against the Atlanta Braves, allowing three runs in the bottom of the 9th.

He is 35 for 40 in save opportunities this season, and is eligible to return Aug. 31.

Edlefsen was drafted by the Giants in the 16th round of the 2007 MLB Draft. In 2011, he is 2-4 with a 5.66 ERA in 32 appearances for Triple-A Fresno.

In 2010, he went 7-2 with a 2.38 ERA in 36 opportunities for the Grizzlies.

Former A's catcher Stephen Vogt claimed by NL Central team

Former A's catcher Stephen Vogt claimed by NL Central team

A new team believes in Stephen Vogt.

The former A's catcher, who was designated for assignment on Thursday, was claimed by the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.

The A's announced the transaction shortly before their game against the White Sox.

News of the Brewers making the waiver claim was first reported by ESPN.

The Brewers were the only team to place a waiver claim on Vogt, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.

Vogt, a clubhouse leader and one of the longest tenured A's, hit just .217 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 54 games this season.
