SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants have no plans to bring back suspended outfielder Melky Cabrera for the postseason if the club is still playing when he is eligible to return.
Manager Bruce Bochy says he and general manager Brian Sabean are meeting to finalize their 25-man roster for the best-of-five division series. Cabrera would be allowed to play in the NLCS if the Giants advance that far, but they have no intention of adding him to the roster at any point in the postseason.
An announcement regarding Cabrera is expected before the NL West champions leave town after a three-game series against Arizona that began Tuesday night. First, they plan to alert all the parties involved: Cabrera, Major League Baseball and the players union.
