The San Francisco Giants placed Tristan Beck on the 60-day injured list on Sunday, with the right-hander scheduled to have surgery Monday to remove an aneurysm in the upper part of his pitching arm.

The team had announced the diagnosis last Thursday after Beck departed spring training in Scottsdale, Ariz., to see a vascular specialist at Stanford, where he will have the procedure.

Beck, 27, had been experiencing numbness in his hand early in camp. Projected to be the team’s No. 5 starter in the rotation, Beck said he hopes to return before the end of the season.

“Disappointment is definitely the operative word,” Beck said. “Devastation. All that. But it’s interesting. This feels different. I’ve had injuries in the past, and there’s definitely two sides to this. Obviously, I came in with an opportunity to go out there and compete for a really meaningful role on this team. That meant a lot to me. … It’s disappointing to not be able to follow through on that, at least early.

“Then there’s kind of the flip side,” he continued. “This is something that could have been a little more serious. Something that kind of feels like it has more off-the-field implications. I’m just really thankful for the great people we have around. The fact that this was just absolutely textbook by the Giants’ medical (staff) and all parties.”

Beck made his major league debut last season and went 3-3 with two saves and a 3.92 ERA in 85 innings over 33 games (three starts).
