Roster Moves

109 of us probably just posted this but.... From Schulman: The Giants have made a seismic shift in their personnel today. They optioned struggling second baseman Emmanuel Burriss to Triple-A Fresno and purchased the contract of 25-year-old infielder Matt Downs, who just took a terrific round of batting practice. Burriss has been exceptional defensively but has not had a hit since June 4. Downs was hitting .288/.333/.453 with six homers and 38 RBIs with the Grizzlies. I presume he will be in the lineup tonight. Catcher Steve Holm was designated for assignment to clear space on the 40-man roster for Downs. Downs is in the lineup batting eiighth. Otherwise, the lineup is the same as yesterday's.
