The Giants  optioned right-handed pitcher Jake Dunning to Triple-A Fresno and recalled righty George Kontos, the team announced on Twitter. 

Kontos, 28, is 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 18.1 innings over 11 games with the Grizzlies this season.

While with the Grizzlies this season, Dunning pitched 14.1 innings with a 2.51 ERA and 11 strikeouts.
