The Giants have reinstated first baseman Brandon Belt and right-hander Dominic Leone from the COVID-related injured list. Infielder Jason Vosler and righty Sean Hjelle were optioned to Triple-A in the corresponding roster moves.
Belt and Leone return after positive COVID-19 tests sidelined the duo on April 29. Both were off to strong starts — Belt hit .242/.367/.470 with four home runs over his first 79 plate appearances, while Leone had a 2.57 ERA over his first eight innings out of the Giants bullpen.
With Belt moving back to his customary first base spot, Wilmer Flores (who had been filling in at first base) is likely to slide across the diamond and take over at third now that Vosler is back in Triple-A. Evan Longoria has yet to play this season due to finger surgery, but the veteran is on a minor league rehab assignment and could be close to his 2022 debut.
