Is Emmanuel Burriss postseason bound?

Fresh off a somewhat dramatic ninth-inning comeback, the San Francisco Giants will travel from San Diego to Los Angeles to conclude their regular-season play against the rival Dodgers.

Prominent in their late-game turnaround was Xavier Nady, the journeyman outfielder who joined the San Francisco roster on Sep. 1 after being signed to a minor league contract in August.

Nady's ninth inning, game-tying home run off Padres closer Huston Street is sure to be in the minds of Bruce Bochy and Brian Sabean as they whittle down their roster to 25 men for the NLDS.

Having already announced that Melky Cabrera will not rejoin the team when his suspension concludes, the Giants will assuredly bring Nady aboard to platoon left field with Gregor Blanco and provide some pop off the bench.

Who else will join Nady on the playoff roster is the source of speculation as the calendar turns to October. Here are five players that will likely fall just short of making the cut for the postseason.
