The Giants will go with 12 pitchers, and they’ll welcome Eduardo Nuñez back to the roster.

The Giants announced their 25-man roster for the National League Division Series vs. the Cubs, and Eduardo Nuñez is on, even though he might not start Game 1. The biggest surprises? Ty Blach on, Cory Gearrin and Steven Okert off. Gregor Blanco on, Jarrett Parker off.

That last one surprises me. You’re not going to believe this, but the Giants have absolutely no power off the bench. Except for Conor Gillaspie, he said, laughing maniacally and rolling around on the floor.

Other than that, though, they’re roughly the Giants you were expecting. Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey are on the roster, for example.
