The Giants called up Hall from its farm system affiliate Triple-A Sacramento seizing upon the arrival of September and adding to the playoff push to lend a hand during the final month of the regular season.

Hall, drafted by San Francisco 19th round in 2011, will make his Major League debut with his first appearance. He was 1-3 with a 3.46 ERA and three saves in 43 appearances for Sacramento.
