    Todd Linden, RF, SF (ETA – July 31)

    At least one more roster move is on the way for San Francisco, but just who will join the club was still unknown as of Monday morning. According to MLB.com, the organization is against promoting its hottest prospect, Todd Linden, who leads the Pacific Coast League in homers (18) and RBIs (58). Linden has five homers in June, but team officials would prefer he play every day, a guarantee he wouldn't have with the parent club. Still, if Sabean's tinkering becomes a full-blown rebuilding effort, look for Linden to get an extended look down the stretch.

    They'll likely bring up Jesse Fopppert who played in Shreveport to take the roster spot of Jim Brower who was released. Edgardo Alfonso came up gimpy after trying to break up a double play so the Giants might be forced to use the roster spot on an infielder. The problem with the Giants organization is that they do a poor job of developing players. Of the 13 or so position players that see time, only Pedro Feliz and Yorvit Torrealba, were players that came up through the Giants farm system. Hopefully Todd Linden will get his legit shot at staying in the Big Leagues. But with the outfielders they have, especially when Bonds returns, he'll likely be the odd man out again.

    agree. alfonzo is definitely going on the DL it seems so they may have to get a MI. then again Feliz can play SS or 3b.


    linden was 4/5 with a homer and 5 rbi last monday.

    he's a pure hitter and simply needs time to prove himself. With Bonds out they should have already given him another shot. Then again, he's not dominican.

    they should move feliz to 3rd and call up linden. alou has no help.

    I still don't care much for Linden even though he went to LSU.
