MELKY WILL NOT PLAY IN THE PLAYOFFS FOR S.F GIANTS
Mon, 01 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

The San Francisco Giants have informed Melky Cabrera’s agent they won’t bring the suspended outfielder back at any point this postseason.

Manager Bruce Bochy made the announcement before the series finale against the Diamondbacks, San Francisco’s last regular-season home game.

“We have decided not to send Melky on a rehab assignment because we do not plan to add him to any playoff roster,” Bochy announced. “We had to make this call early because Melky would have to start rehabbing in Arizona. We have come to a decision to develop our roster from our present group of players. They’ve done a brilliant job during the critical part of the season. We have informed Melky’s agent and they know. I just like the way this club has played down the stretch and moved on. So we’re going to move forward without Melky.”

Bochy said the NL West champ Giants will go into the best-of-5 divisional series with the present line-up. Cabrera’s suspension takes him through the first 5 games of the playoffs, so he’d have been eligible in the NL championship series if San Francisco advanced.

“While I am disappointed that I won’t have the opportunity to join my team in the playoffs, I wish my squad the best in the postseason and I could be rooting hard for them to bring another world championship to San Francisco!” Cabrera claimed in a press release through his representatives.

The All-Star game MVP, batting a National League-leading .346, was suspended Aug. 15 for a positive testosterone text. Cabrera asked to be removed from contention for the National League batting crown, saying he had no wish to win a tainted title.

Hall of Famer Wade Boggs feels Cabrera made the right decision.

“I’m pleased that he stood up and asserted that he did not deserve it, number one, as he cheated to get to that point,” Boggs said in a phone interview. “I would have thought MLB would have stepped in before that and kind of disqualified him on that fact. But he’s a stand-up guy, and as far as (public relations) concerns, it’s was good for his corner, for him to do something like that.”

Bochy was asked whether anything happening that might change in the team’s thinking regarding Cabrera if there had been a big injury or other unforeseen circumstance.

“I can’t say I can right now,” Bochy recounted. “We’ve made this decision and that’s where we’re at the moment. I’m not going to get into anything that’s hypothetical,” Bochy said. “We have a lot of outfielders. … We have a large list here. They have all done a good job and stepped up when we required them. We are going to have a 25-man roster from the guys you can see here right now.”

Cabrera was batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBIs in his 1st season with S.F Giants and is 5 hits shy of 1,000 in his big league career. He is ready to become a free agent after the season.
