Giants’ September Call-Ups: Round One

Per Andrew Baggarly, the Giants will kick off September call-ups tomorrow with the additions of outfielder Xavier Nady, infielders Brett Pill and Aubrey Huff, and RHP Shane Loux, Brad Penny, and Jean Machi.

In a 40-game stint with the Washington Nationals, Nady carried a batting line of .157/.211/.275 in 109 PA, with 6 extra-base hits, a stolen base, and 7 walks. In his transition from the Nationals’ farm system to Fresno, Nady saw his numbers spike from .150/.220/.184 with the high-A Potomac Nationals to .270/.343./528 with the Grizzlies.

In the three weeks since his last trip to San Francisco, Brett Pill has seen 15 games, going 16-for-62 with 7 XBH, including a 2-homer game against the Diamondbacks’ triple-A affiliate.

Fellow Grizzlie and right-hander Jean Machi, the only other player on the list not returning from the DL, will make his major league debut next month. Machi holds a 3.97 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 53 appearances, striking out 44 batters and walking just 17 in 56.2 IP. His track record is lengthy, with a full eleven MiLB seasons under his belt and almost a full two seasons in Fresno.
