Among the call-ups on Saturday, Sept. 1, will be Francisco Cervelli.

The popular catcher who was feature in this here blog for much of the season in the Daily Cervelli will return to the big club for the first time after it looked as if he would be the team's major league backup until the final days of spring. Instead, Austin Romine hurt his back, Chris Stewart arrived from San Francisco and Frankie was left riding the buses.

Cervelli hit .246 with two homers and 39 RBIs in 99 games at Triple-A.

A source confirmed Cervelli's return after CBS Sports' Jon Heyman tweeted it.
