After an MRI this morning, it was determined that Durham's injury was serious enough to be placed on the DL. In place of Durham, the Giants brought up utility infielder, Brian Dallimore, from Triple-A Fresno. Dallimore has been hitting .375 as a Grizzly, and can play at all the bases and the corner outfield positions.
Southpaw Brian Cooper, who made two starts with the Giants so far this season, has been designated for assignment, and the Giants purchased the contract of righty Tyler Walker to help the struggling bullpen.
Kevin Correia will be making his first major league start this season on Friday against the Florida Marlins' lefty hurler and Bay Area native, Dontrelle Willis. Since being called up for the injured Dustin Hermanson, Correia made a bullpen appearance against the Dodgers on Sunday and went four innings while giving up a couple of runs. Hermanson may be activated on May 6.
