The first place San Francisco Giants will open up a seven game home stand later on tonight starting with a three game series against the Atlanta Braves. Atlanta is coming off a three game sweep of the Chicago Cubs.
Now the Giants made a couple roster moves today before they take the field against the Braves. San Francisco has activated left-handed relief pitcher David Huff from the 15-day disabled list. Huff missed three weeks with a strained quad and is expected to return to a long relief role in the bullpen.
With Huff back on the active roster, the Giants have optioned outfielder Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno. Perez has only picked up one hit in 20 at-bats so it was obvious that he was the odd-man out. He could pick up another opportunity to step up and prove himself with the Major League club later on this year, but the guy needs to work on his plate discipline if he’s hoping to stick with the active roster.
