SAN FRANCISCO - The Giants wanted Christian Arroyo to force his way to the big leagues. After just 16 games in Triple-A, the 21-year-old did just that.
Arroyo was called up to the big leagues Monday as part of a roster shakeup, a source told NBC Sports Bay Area. The organization's top hitting prospect is batting .446 this season with seven doubles and three homers. The Giants did not intend to rush Arroyo to the big leagues, but the numbers became overwhelming. He had four hits Sunday - a day the big league squad was swept - including a walk-off.
The Giants are expected to make multiple roster moves Monday before the first game of a series with the Dodgers. They came home with a 6-13 record.
