Giants to promote Brett Bochy

Gleeman is not a fan.

The Giants are rolling a family reunion into their September call-ups.

The team plans to purchase the contract of right-hander Brett Bochy, son of manager Bruce Bochy, along with four other additions after Triple-A Fresno plays its season finale on Monday.

The younger Bochy, a 20th-round pick in 2010 out of Kansas, posted a 3.57 ERA in 34 games (two starts), striking out 47 and walking 24 in 53 innings… The 27-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery shortly after the Giants drafted him and has made steady progress over the past four seasons…

This isn’t the first time a Giants manager has had his son on the roster. Bochy’s predecessor, Felipe Alou, managed Moises Alou with both the Montreal Expos and Giants.

The problem with this callup is less nepotism and more the dire state of the Giants' upper minors. In the context of the team's AAA/AA pitching, and considering that he's already on the 40-man roster, there's no real reason not to call Brett Bochy up.

I just did a quick look at the Giants to see if there were any alternatives. Jake Dunning is probably better, but didn't clearly outperform Bochy. Derek Law is a AA-reliever who looks like a much better bet, but he might not be as ready to help.

Edit: Law hasn't pitched since June.
