SAN FRANCISCO — Jake Peavy, who was scheduled to make his first start for the San Francisco Giants since July 30 on Saturday night against the Atlanta Braves, instead was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Peavy, who was placed on the DL retroactive to Aug. 21, was replaced as the starter by Albert Suarez, who was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento.

Peavy, 35, has made eight appearances in relief in August after being removed from the rotation following the trade with Tampa Bay for Matt Moore.

He is 5-9 this season with a 5.55 ERA.

RANGERS: Reliever Jeremy Jeffress was away from the team for a second day as Major League Baseball looked into his arrest on a drunken driving charge.

Thad Levine, the team’s assistant general manager, said the players’ association was working closely with the commissioner’s office, with Jeffress and his agent, to “determine a best course of action moving forward.”

Levine said he didn’t know the time frame for a resolution.

MARINERS: Seattle placed right-hander Tom Wilhelmsen on the 15-day disabled list with lower back spasms and added depth to its bullpen.

Right-hander Dan Altavilla was selected from Double-A Jackson and Pat Venditte, who throws with either hand, was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.

ORIOLES: With outfielder Adam Jones nursing a tender hamstring, Baltimore selected the contract of Julio Borbon from Double-A Bowie and optioned pitcher Mike Wright to Triple-A Norfolk.

“We had some other center field options,” Manager Buck Showalter said. “Borbon is our best option at this point.”

TIGERS: The team activated shortstop Jose Iglesias from the 15-day disabled list.

Iglesias hasn’t played since Aug. 12 due to a left hamstring strain. To make room on the 25-man roster for Iglesias, the Tigers designated the contract of outfielder Alex Presley for assignment.

In four rehabilitation games with Triple-A Toledo, Iglesias batted .375 with two runs, a double, a home run and an RBI. Iglesias’ return to the lineup meant Erick Aybar is on the bench for now.

Although Aybar has played just one major-league game at third base, he could see some time there because Nick Castellanos is on the DL.
