The San Francisco Giants placed infielder Pablo Sandoval on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation.
The move is retroactive to Sunday, which was the two-time All-Star's 33rd birthday.
Splitting time between first base and third base, Sandoval is batting .269 with 14 homers and 41 RBIs in 107 games this season.
In a corresponding transaction, the Giants reinstated outfielder Alex Dickerson from the 10-day IL. He has been out since July 30 due to a strained right oblique.
Dickerson, 29, batted .386 with six homers and 23 RBIs in 30 games with San Francisco after being acquired in a June 10 trade with the San Diego Padres.
