San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Ryan Vogelsong is set to make his first major league start in close to two months, with the San Francisco Giants reinstating the veteran pitcher from the 60-day disabled list to take the mound for Friday's game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Vogelsong fractured two bones and sustained a dislocated joint in the pinkie finger of his right hand while at the plate in a May 20 contest against the Washington Nationals. The 35-year-old pronounced himself ready to return, however, by allowing just one run in 11 innings over a pair of recent rehab assignments with Double-A Richmond.

The right-hander had been struggling badly prior to the injury, posting a 2-4 record along with a 7.19 earned run average over his first nine starts of 2013. Vogelsong allowed five or more or runs in six of those outings.

To make room for Vogelsong on the 25-man roster, the Giants optioned reliever Jean Machi to Triple-A Fresno.

Machi has appeared in 33 games out of the bullpen for San Francisco this season, going 2-1 with a 3.34 ERA.
