Justin Christian to DL, Call Up Francisco Peguero

By Amanda Gill

In last night’s win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, outfielder Justin Christian made a spectacular diving catch in left field. On the play, he jammed his wrist and is now headed to the 15-Day Disable List. In his place the Giants called up outfielder Francisco Peguero.

Playing for the Fresno Grizzlies, the Giants triple-A affiliate, Peguero batted .272 with five home runs and 68 RBI’s. The stat to notice is that he has a .317 average against left handed pitching.
