Dodgers preparing for September callups

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said he would be surprised if he adds a player in a waiver trade before Saturday's deadline, though he expects the Dodgers to call up five to seven Minor Leaguers once rosters expand on Sunday.

"It's a small list of phone calls," Colletti said. "The deadline at this point is really no different than it was in July. There's still not a tremendous amount of sellers."

Any player who is in the organization by Saturday is eligible for the postseason. On Sunday, rosters expand and the Dodgers could carry up to 40 active players.

Colletti said he expects a group of September callups from the 40-man roster to arrive on Sunday, and "then maybe a couple more after."
