Just five days after professing his love for the organization, Giants outfielder Justin Christian has been designated for assignment by the club, according to a tweet from San Jose Mercury reporter Andrew Baggarly.
The move was made so the Giants could reconcile their 40-man roster, after they officially added infielder Ryan Theriot and reliever Guillermo Mota today.
On Media Day last Friday, Christian appeared on a live San Francisco Giants webcast and said his 2012 goal was to “just go out there and play the best I can and help this team win. I want to be a table-setter and make the other guys look good.”
The 31-year-old Bay Area native batted .255/.286/.362 (0.647 OPS) with 5 doubles, 0 HR, 4 RBI, 6 runs scored, and 3 stolen bases in 51 plate appearances (18 games) with the Giants last year.
