Giants move Crawford from bereavement list to 10-day DL

Brandon Crawford, who was already on the bereavement list, has been placed on the 10-day DL by the Giants on Saturday.

Crawford has already served three of the 10 days due to his stint on the bereavement list. The Giants' shortstop is dealing with a right groin strain.

In 21 games this season, Crawford is hitting .263/.284/.434 with two home runs. He won his second Gold Glove last season. 

Rookie Christian Arroyo is taking his place at shortstop on Saturday.
