Giants September Call-up’s Are…

By Bryan Rose

Nothing out of ordinary with the Giants’ September call up’s, listed below. Eric Surkamp will be “promoted” as well to start the opening game in San Diego on the 6th, as he was only sent back down to get work in as the Giants didn’t need a fifth starter with yesterday’s off day.

Promoted from AAA Fresno:

Brandon Crawford (SS)

Emmanuel Burris (2nd/INF)

Conor Gillipse (3b)

Waldis Joaquin (P)

Promoted from AA Richmond:

Darren Ford (OF)

Eric Surkamp (P – to be brought back up next week, and he’s actually in San Jose for travel reasons)

Some might be wondering about the Joaquin promotion – my guess is to fill the roster spot Dan Runzler would have had. However, being he hasn’t been down on the farm ten days he’s not eligible to be recalled (without an injury) until that time frame.
