Okert was recalled Friday from Triple-A Sacramento, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Okert was sent down to Triple-A to regain his confidence and has performed admirably for Sacramento, notching four saves over 12 innings with a 2.25 ERA and a sparkling 0.67 WHIP. Okert owns a 6.23 ERA at the MLB level this season, but the Giants are hoping he'll pitch more like he did in his first major-league stint last season, when he managed a 3.21 ERA and 14 strikeouts in as many innings.
