The Giants are calling up Calixte from Triple-A Sacramento, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The utility man has compiled a .246/.285/.427 line with 14 home runs and 19 stolen bases at Sacramento this year but has much more to prove in the majors to make himself worthy of fantasy consideration. Calixte will back up several positions but could earn a few starts per week for the floundering Giants.
Calixte was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento following Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Calixte has bounced back and forth between the Giants and Sacramento over the past few months, going 1-for-5 with one RBI during a brief stay in San Francisco over the past 10 days. The 25-year-old is a good candidate for a September call-up once rosters expand, but would likely continue to serve as depth off the bench for the rest of this season.
Calixte was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Calixte was summoned back to the big club to take the place of Joe Panik, who hit the concussion DL. The 25-year-old posted a .172/.242/.207 slash line in 10 games with the Giants earlier in the season, so he will likely play primarily off the bench.
Calixte was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday. Calixte will serve as the Giants' 26th man during Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals. The reserve outfielder will likely head back to the minors following the two contests.
Calixte was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday. The Giants wanted more bullpen depth for the remainder of their series with the Pirates, so Calixte will be replaced by Chris Stratton on the active roster. The utility man went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in his most recent cup of coffee with San Francisco, and he figures to be on the shuttle for the rest of the season.
