Timpner and Schierholtz

So the Giants send Roberts to the DL and call up... Clay Timpner.  Not nasty Nate? Warum?

Since, I just looked at the stats on baseballreference.com here some are:

Timpner career minors: .283/328/379/707.  Turns 25 in May, bats/throws left.
After 60 Games in Fresno in 06, in 07 he pulled a: .301/363/395/758.
After some good steals/cs numbers in SJ, its been pretty dismal in AAA.

Schierholtz career minors: .306/352/505/857. 24 since February.  Bats left, Throws right.
First year in Fresno (2007): 333/365/560/925.

So Nate is off to a slow start I guess.  And Clay can play CF. So can Davis.  So can a healed Winn. Oh and that bruised ribs guy.  And wasn't Velez getting CF time last year.  I'm pretty sure Aurilia can play a good CF.  Is this just SF using its 40 man roster to reward a AAA that got skipped over in all the Lewis/Davis madness last year?  His turn for a cup of coffee?  Another display of the Giant's organizations depth of mediocrity in the OF?  Hey lookie other teams, you can have a Taschner-model loogie and a [insert name here] AAAA OF for your  AA blocked 3rd base prospect.

and if they're hurt, why not DL the lot of the old OF (Roberts AND Winn (ankles right?) AND Aaron "Chest-Pains" Rowand).  Lewis, Davis, Schierholtz, Backups Ort, and Velez.ner
