Melky Cabrera to be left off Giants postseason roster, according to report

The San Francisco Giants are not including suspended outfielder Melky Cabrera in their postseason plans, according to a report by The Associated Press.

Manager Bruce Bochy met with Giants General Manager Brian Sabean Tuesday to define the 25-man roster for the best-of-five Division Series.

Cabrera, who is currently serving a 50-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs, might be eligible to return, but the team is not considering adding him at any point.

An announcement by the Giants regarding the matter will be made "before of the end of the homestand," Bochy said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. It was expected Tuesday, prior to the game between the Giants and the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Bochy thinks the issue should be addressed as quickly as possible.

Asked if it was best to get the decision out of the way, Bochy said during his daily press briefing, "Yes, for both our side and Melky’s side. We’re getting down to the time period where he’d have to start working out and doing some things. I think he needs to know and we need to know."
