Giants to be conservative with September callups

Giants to be conservative with September callups

SAN FRANCISCO -- With rosters set to expand Saturday, Giants manager Bruce Bochy doesn't expect the Giants to add a considerable number of players to their roster, especially as they head into the last month of the race to the postseason.

"I'm not a fan of bringing up too many, to be honest," Bochy said. "I think it can get a bit crowded and it's hard to put them all in there. You bring up enough to give you enough coverage everywhere, the pitching side and the players side."

The roster limit will expand to 40 players, and the Giants are expected to use a combination of activating injured players such as Brad Penny and Aubrey Huff as well as calling up prospects to add enough depth for the last month of the season -- but not too much.

"That's a fine line," Bochy said. "It gets a little crowded with batting practice and in the clubhouse. I think you can overdo it sometimes to be honest, call up too much guys."
