Giants activate trade candidate Eduardo Nuñez from disabled list


SAN DIEGO – The Giants don’t exactly begin the second half at full strength – what team with a 34-56 record can claim that? – but they will have the full complement of 25 players when they open a series against the Padres at Petco Park on Friday.

That’s because the club recalled third baseman Eduardo Nuñez from his minor league rehab assignment and activated him from the disabled list.

Nuñez was supposed to play two rehab games at third base for Single-A San Jose to test his sore hamstring, but ended up at DH on Wednesday. That’s because he was struck on the calf by a ball in batting practice. But Nuñez passed the tests during a game on Thursday and he fills the roster opening that the Giants had created when they optioned outfielder Mac Williamson back to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.
