Description: San Francisco will promote outfielder Justin Christian, 32, from Triple-A Fresno Friday. Aubrey Huff is expected to be placed on the disabled list with a sprained knee suffered during the celebration of Matt Cain's perfect game, and Chrisitan will likely replace him on the roster.
Insight: Christian is fifth in the Pacific Coast League with a .364 batting average in 60 games. He also has seven homers, 31 RBIs, 10 steals and a 25/25 K/BB ratio. However, San Francisco's outfield is crowded with Angel Pagan, Gregor Blanco and Melky Cabrera holding starting spots and Nate Schierholtz coming off the bench.
