Share post:

On the cusp of clinching the National League West title, the San Francisco Giants reinstated left-handed reliever Jake McGee from the 10-day injured list.

In a corresponding move, the Giants optioned infielder Thairo Estrada to Triple-A Sacramento.

McGee, 35, missed the last two weeks with a right oblique strain. In 62 relief outings this season, the San Francisco closer is 3-2 with a 2.72 ERA and has 31 saves in 36 chances.

In 12 career seasons, McGee is 31-25 with a 3.50 ERA and 76 saves in 608 appearances.

Estrada, 22, was batting .273 with seven home runs and 22 RBIs in 52 games in his first season with the Giants. In 113 games over three seasons with the New York Yankees and Giants, Estrada is a .245 hitter with 11 home runs and 37 RBIs.

The Giants’ magic number for clinching their first NL West title since 2012 was one heading into Saturday afternoon’s game against the San Diego Padres.
