Ryan Vogelsong returns after missing more than two and a half months with a broken bone in his hand.
To make room for Vogelsong, the Giants announced that they have optioned Jean Machi to Triple-A Fresno.
Vogelsong will start Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles. It will be his first major league appearance since May 20.
