PITTSBURGH >> The San Francisco Giants have put third baseman Pablo Sandoval on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left foot.

The reigning World Series MVP was sidelined before the Giants played Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

Infielder Nick Noonan was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to take Sandoval’s roster spot. Noonan had just been optioned to Fresno on Saturday after spending the entire season with the Giants.

Sandoval is hitting .289 with eight home runs in 57 games this season. He helped the Giants sweep the Detroit Tigers last October to win their second World Series in three years by hitting three home runs in Game 1.

Noonan hit .203 with one double in 59 at-bats for San Francisco. In one game with Fresno, he went 3 for 5 with a double and two RBIs.
