 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -The San Francisco Giants optioned outfielder Dan Ortmeier to Triple-A Fresno on Monday and recalled outfielder Nate Schierholtz from the Pacific Coast League team, his first appearance on a major league 25-man roster.
Ortmeier played well for the Giants, batting .269 with two home runs and four RBIs, three doubles and a triple in 26 games. The Giants needed a left-handed bat, which Schierholtz provides, for Wednesday's series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays and then in Boston this weekend.
``Ortmeier did a great job,'' manager Bruce Bochy said. ``It's not a case where he's going down because of his play. He had some big hits for us. He showed he can play up here and handle himself.''
Schierholtz - who has been in major league camp at spring training the past three years - was third in the PCL with a .347 batting average with four home runs, 33 RBIs and five stolen bases in 58 games for the Grizzlies. He also had 20 doubles and three triples.
``I knew I had a shot. I was playing pretty well,'' Schierholtz said.
He attended high school in nearby Danville and had quite a crew in the stands for his possible debut, needing 25 tickets for family and friends. He received word on the bus ride home late Sunday night from a road trip to Las Vegas - the only time this season Fresno took a bus.
``Exciting. I wasn't expecting it,'' he said. ``I'll be happy to get some at-bats and some opportunities to show what I can do.''
