SF Giants’ McGee, Ruf and Cueto are about to return to the list

SAN FRANCISCO – A diagnosis of a thumb fracture that could cost Brandon Bilt a chance to play for the Giants once again overshadowed Positive Developments Director Gabi Kapler, who shared him on Tuesday.

The Giants put Belt on the injured list for 10 days Tuesday with an injury that could force him to miss most or all of the post-season, but the team could have some important reinforcements to join the roster in the coming days.

Closer Jake McGee, starters Johnny Cueto and right-handed batsman Darin Ruf are making good progress as they rehab from the various injuries that propelled the trio to the injured list in September.

Rove, who missed last week due to a mild tilt strain, could be the first member of the group to return as Kapler said he is “optimistic” Rove will be in the Giants’ starting lineup on Thursday when the club faces Arizona-hander left-hander Madison Baumgarner.
