Adrianza returns as Perez sent back to Triple-A

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants optioned outfielder Juan Perez to Triple-A Fresno after the team's 5-2 win against the A's on Wednesday night. Infielder Ehire Adrianza will be activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday.

Perez has started nine games for the Giants this season with seven hits in 45 at-bats. The highlight of the 27-year-old's season has been a game-winning two-run home run against the Reds on June 4.

Adrianza has missed 15 games due to a right hamstring strain. In 46 games this season, he's hit .213 (16-for-75) with four RBIs. He'd shown improvements before getting hurt, though, as he hit .333 (6-for-18) with one RBI and two doubles in his last five games before the injury.
