The Giants set their roster for the N.L. Division Series against the Cubs on Friday morning, and it includes Eduardo Nunez.

The third baseman was probably the biggest question mark due to a hamstring injury. But the Giants clearly believe Nunez will be able to help them at some point in the series, though manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday he does not expect Nunez to be able to start in Game 1 on Friday night at Wrigley Field.

The roster also includes left-handed pitcher Ty Blach, who was not on the roster for the wild-card game and replaces reliever Steven Okert. The Giants are carrying 12 pitchers into the series, including four starters and Blach as a potential long reliever.
