ST. LOUIS -- The San Francisco Giants have placed right-hander Shane Loux on the 15-day disabled list with a recurring neck strain and added newly acquired lefty Jose Mijares to the roster.

The team announced the moves before Tuesday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Mijares was claimed off waivers Monday from Kansas City. He was 2-2 with a 2.56 ERA in 51 games with the Royals.

Loux has appeared in 14 games for San Francisco, going 0-0 with a 5.66 ERA.
