Giants, Astros, Starting Lineup: Andres Torres Returns From DL

With the San Francisco Giants looking up in the standings, every game becomes more important with each passing day. Today’s meeting with the Astros is no different, looking for a series win and their third win in a row.

Andres Torres will make his return from the disabled list, batting lead off and playing center field for the Black and Orange. Brandon Belt will bat fifth again, moving himself up the lineup will Aubrey Huff moves to sixth. Orlando Cabrera will be at shortstop batting seventh, while Eli Whiteside will be the backstop for Matt Cain this afternoon.

Nate Schierholtz has been put on the 15 day DL due to his hairline fracture in his foot. He likely will be ready to go in the middle of September.
