Marlon Byrd has only been a Giant for just over a month, but he has apparently left manager Bruce Bochy with a lasting impression during that timeframe.

As the regular season comes to a close, Bochy assessed Byrd's performance in his few weeks with the team, making it known that he'd like to see him back next season.

"All of this will be discussed here soon," Bochy said, per the San Jose Mercury News. "Byrd has done a great job for us. I love how he plays. For a guy who's 38, he plays like he's 28. He takes care of himself. He's a threat at the plate. He's got a knack for knocking in runs. This will be discussed with [executive vice president of baseball operations Brian Sabean] and [general manager] Bobby Evans and the staff. He's a joy to have, really. He comes to play every day."
