The Giants optioned Emmanuel Burriss, clearing room on the 25-man roster for Carlos Beltran, who will start and bat third for the Giants in Thursday's game against the Phillies.
Beltran, acquired in a trade for top pitching prospect Zack Wheeler, was added to the 40-man roster when the Giants designated Bill Hall for assignment.
Burriss, 26, has hit .225 in 48 major league games this season and .361 in 21 games with Triple-A Fresno.
