SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco outfielder Melky Cabrera has been reinstated by Major League Baseball after serving a 50-game suspension for a positive testosterone test, but he will not be part of the Giants' playoff roster.

Cabrera is back on the Giants' 40-man roster as of Friday. Giants vice-president of baseball operations Bobby Evans says, "Cabrera's status regarding the post-season remains unchanged" after the club announced Sept. 27 it wouldn't add Cabrera for any round.

The Giants open the NL championship series on Sunday.

Cabrera was suspended Aug. 15, a month he was the All-Star game MVP. He was batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBIs in his first season with San Francisco.

To clear roster room, San Francisco outrighted right-hander Shane Loux and outfielder Justin Christian to Triple-A Fresno.
