Arias needs more time to return from appendicitis

SAN FRANCISCO -- Utility infielder Joaquin Arias, who's recovering from appendicitis, likely will need to spend two or three additional days on the disabled list beyond the earliest possible date for his reinstatement, which is next Tuesday.

This development, which manager Bruce Bochy announced Friday, bore no significant impact. Arias was expected to miss at least two weeks after undergoing an appendectomy July 7. The probable delay in his activation from the DL is not that extreme.

Arias, 28, owns a .282 batting average in 60 games, including 23 starts -- 13 at third base, six at shortstop and four at first base.
