Melky Cabrera Suspension: Justin Christian A Likely Call-Up?

The San Francisco Giants now have a vacancy in their 40-man roster that can now be filled for the rest of the regular season and potentially the start of the playoffs. They won't be replacing anyone today as San Francisco is currently participating in a day game with the Washington Nationals.

Alex Pavlovic of the Bay Area News Group fills us in on the current possibilities for replacing Cabrera from their farm system.

That leaves Justin Christian as the likeliest option. Christian's splits in 38 at-bats have not been that great for San Francisco. But he's been performing well at Fresno, batting .348 with an OBP of .414 and slugging percentage of .515. He might be the type of player the Giants need.
