The San Francisco Giants placed star pitcher Blake Snell on the 15-day injured list with a left adductor strain, the club announced Wednesday.

Right-hander Landen Roupp was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move.

Snell was scheduled to start Wednesday's series finale against the New York Mets. The Giants are turning to reliever Ryan Walker as part of a bullpen game, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Snell is off to a rocky start in his first season with the Giants. The 31-year-old has posted an 0-3 record with an 11.57 ERA, 1.97 WHIP, and 12 strikeouts over three starts.

The Giants signed Snell on March 19 to a two-year, $62-million contract with an opt-out at the end of the 2024 campaign.
