Giants Sign Justin Christian To Minor League Deal

The Giants have agreed to sign outfielder Justin Christian to a minor league contract according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports, but they did not give him an invitation to Spring Training.

Christian, 31 in April, spent last year playing in the Yankees' minor league system, hitting .289/.366/.435 with 22 steals and nearly as many walks (48) as strikeouts (56) in 468 plate appearances, mostly at Double-A. He was brilliant in the Mexican Pacific League this winter, hitting .356/.452/.561 with 22 doubles, ten homers, 24 steals (one caught stealing), 44 walks, and 27 strikeouts in 253 at-bats.

Christian's lone big league action came in 2008, when he hit .250/.302/.325 with seven steals in 43 plate appearances for New York. He's spent the majority of his career in the outfield (all three spots), but he's seen work at second base and shortstop.
