Greg Johnson has been approved as the new controlling owner of the San Francisco Giants.

The league's owners approved Johnson Thursday at the owners meetings in Arlington, Texas.

Larry Baer will still represent the Giants at the meetings, along with Johnson and Rob Dean, who had been handling leadership duties since March.

Baer was suspended without pay from March 4 through July 1 after a video showed him in a physical altercation with his wife. He and Farhan Zaidi will report to Johnson and Dean.
