The Giants have designated Bill Hall for assignment, the team announced Thursday morning.
Hall had been on the 15-day DL with a leg laceration. He batted .158 (6 for 38) in 16 games with the Giants.
The second baseman was acquired after starter Freddy Sanchez sustained a dislocated shoulder that put him on the 60-day DL.

A new team believes in Stephen Vogt.
The former A's catcher, who was designated for assignment on Thursday, was claimed by the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
The A's announced the transaction shortly before their game against the White Sox.
News of the Brewers making the waiver claim was first reported by ESPN.
The Brewers were the only team to place a waiver claim on Vogt, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
Vogt, a clubhouse leader and one of the longest tenured A's, hit just .217 with four home runs and 20 RBI in 54 games this season.
