Justin Christian Designated For Assignment By San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants have designated Bay Area native and current outfielder Justin Christian for assignment, needing to make room on the 40-man roster for Ryan Theriot and Guillermo Mota.

Christian, 31 batted .255 (12-for-47) over 18 games with the Giants towards the end of last season after hitting a very respectable .294/.376/.459 between Double-A Richmond and Triple-A Fresno.

Christian does have some speed and is proficient enough with the glove to play all three outfield positions. He turns 32 in April and likely could find himself somewhere else if he slips through waivers.

Here is Giants Insider Andrew Baggarly on Twitter:

Best of luck Justin, wouldn’t mind seeing you in Fresno next season.
