Greisinger taken out after just 15 pitches

Seth Greisinger was removed from tonight's game after taking a batted ball off his lower right leg in the top of the 2nd inning (Craig Brazell led off the inning and was the batter that hit the ball).  Greisinger tried tossing a few pitches to see if he could continue, but it seems he didn't feel right on the mound and the Giants took him out.

Greisinger was just added to the active roster prior to the game and had thrown just 15 pitches.

There are currently no plans to have Greisinger get checked out at a hospital as the team believes it to be a contusion -- icing will be the primary course of treatment.
