The San Francisco Giants activated outfielder Michael Conforto from the 10-day injured list and optioned rookie infielder Casey Schmitt to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.
Conforto, 30, has been out since straining his left hamstring while making a catch in right field on Aug. 23 at Philadelphia.
He is batting .251/.343/.405 with 15 home runs and 55 RBIs in 111 games in his first season with the Giants.
Conforto played his first seven years with the New York Mets from 2015-21 but missed all of 2022 with a shoulder injury. An All-Star in 2017, he owns 147 career home runs and 451 RBIs — with career highs of 33 homers and 92 RBIs in 2019 — in 868 games.
He can opt out of his final year of a two-year, $36 million contract this offseason.
Schmitt, 24, is batting .202 with three home runs and 28 RBIs in 88 games. The Giants selected him in the second round of the 2020 draft out of San Diego State.
