Giants activate Alex Dickerson and Darin Ruf, option LaMonte Wade Jr. and Jason Vosler

The San Francisco Giants have a lot of depth. That’s a very good thing to have, but it occasionally can feel frustrating. Such was the case on Monday, when the Giants activated left-handed outfielder Alex Dickerson and right-handed outfielder and first baseman Darin Ruf off of the 10-day Injured List. To make room for the two power hitters, the Giants optioned left-handed third baseman Jason Vosler and left-handed outfielder and first baseman LaMonte Wade Jr.

SF Giants activate Darin Ruf and Alex Dickerson, option Wade & Vosler

The SF Giants activated corner bats Alex Dickerson and Darin Ruf from the injured list on Monday, opting to cut their rehab stints with the Sacramento River Cats short. While activating them gives manager Gabe Kapler some proven power hitters to deploy in his lineup, it also forced the front office to make some tough roster decisions. In the end, they opted to option Jason Vosler and LaMonte Wade Jr to Triple-A.

Giants' Darin Ruf: Two hits in return

Ruf (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Angels. Ruf made his first appearance since May 26 after he missed nearly four weeks with a right hamstring strain. He hit third in the order Tuesday and served as the designated hitter with the Giants playing in an AL park. The 34-year-old is slashing .256/.375/.523 with six home runs, 15 RBI, 18 runs scored and a stolen base across 104 plate appearances. Ruf will likely be a depth option going forward, although he may see the short side of platoon in left field with Alex Dickerson or pick up time when Brandon Belt needs a day off at first base.

Giants announce plans for Alex Dickerson, Darin Ruf, name Sunday’s starter

SAN FRANCISCO – Giants outfielder Alex Dickerson and utility player Darin Ruf will both begin rehab assignments today with Triple-A Sacramento, manager Gabe Kapler said. Kapler said it was likely that Dickerson would play the outfield and Ruf would be the designated hitter for the River Cats, who host Salt Lake tonight. It’s unclear how long each player will be in Sacramento, which is just starting a lengthy homestand.

Giants' Darin Ruf: Beginning rehab Saturday

Ruf (hamstring) will start his Triple-A rehab assignment Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Having been sidelined nearly a month with a strained right hamstring, the first baseman figures to require a couple rehab games before being activated by the Giants. Early next week, perhaps Tuesday against the Angels, remains a realistic target for Ruf's return to action.
