Justin Maxwell, starting outfielder

Bruce Bochy says that Justin Maxwell isn't leaving the lineup when Hunter Pence comes back. There's a caveat, though ... Every player looks like a Hall of Famer when he's in the middle of a hot streak. That's why we have stats, so we can get a sense of perspective.

Justin Maxwell added to 40-man roster; Gary Brown designated for assignment

Maxwell will be the team's fifth outfielder. Gary Brown will have to pass through waivers. There was a time when Gary Brown was the Giants' best prospect.
