SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants left-handed reliever Jose Mijares was expected to return to the team Monday, but he did not arrive in time for the game.

As a result, the Giants placed Mijares on the restricted list. His time on the bereavement list expired after seven days. Mijares had flown to Venezuela to attend his grandmother's funeral.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy wasn't making anything out of it and anticipated Mijares would be in uniform for Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

"We're going to hold off on making any move until he gets here," Bochy said. "I heard he's supposed to arrive late tonight. It's not a big deal."
