Yes, but only in case of injury. According to MLB Rule 40A: "A player must be on his club's active big league roster or disabled list (or bereavement list, suspended list, or military list) on August 31 in order to be eligible for post-season play." However, there are rules that allow for players that were called up in September to replace players that are injured during the playoffs and placed on the disabled list. In these cases, the replacement player must have been on the team's 40 man roster and must play the same position as the injured player.
