Wellemeyer not quite ready to return

SAN FRANCISCO -- Todd Wellemeyer threw 2 2/3 innings Wednesday at Rookie-level Arizona and said while he felt no pain throwing, his strained right quad still isn't fully healed.

"I don't feel it when I pitch," Wellemeyer said. "When I'm done throwing, if were to go quickly in either direction [it stings]; if I were to be too explosive, I'd probably do it all over again."

Wellemeyer, on the disabled list since June 11, said he is scheduled to throw Monday at Triple-A Fresno and, depending on his quad, could return to the Giants or pitch another Minor League outing.

With Madison Bumgarner pitching well in the fifth slot in the rotation, Wellemeyer said he's fine with coming back as a reliever.

"It's already almost August -- I doubt they'd try to put me back in a starting role, unless somebody got hurt," Wellemeyer said. "So I'm just going to prepare to be long guy out of the 'pen."

In other injury news, both center fielder Andres Torres and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Torres' left groin was fine and Torres was just getting one more day of rest by sitting out Thursday's series opener vs. the Mets.
