Found February 08, 2012 on SF Giants Nirvana:
The Giants Designated Justin Christian for assignment today to make room on the 40 man roster for Guillermo Mota and Ryan Theriot, per Andrew Baggarly. I had thought that Christian may have had the inside track to be the team’s 25th man due to the fact that he bats righty, and most of the team’s OF are either switch hitters or left handed hitters, but this move makes it seem less likely. If he clears waivers he will likely receive an invitation to Spring Training.
