Torres' progress delays DL decision
SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants will give center fielder Andres Torres, whose strained left Achilles tendon is improving, at least one more day to prove whether he's healthy enough to avoid going on the 15-day disabled list.

Torres, who hurt himself last Saturday, will try to take batting practice Wednesday.

"We like the progress he has made," manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday. "We like where he is right now enough that we're going to give it another day."

Torres' limp was less noticeable.

"I feel better," he said. "We'll just see what happens. We want to make sure that this is 100 percent. I don't want to rush."
