Giants' Second Baseman Freddy Sanchez Suffers Another Setback, Out for Five Days

Freddy Sanchez has suffered yet another setback.

The San Francisco Giants' injured second baseman will stop his rehab assignment in San Jose for at least five days, according to Giants vice president of baseball operations Bobby Evans.

Sanchez was supposed to play second base for Class-A San Jose on Wednesday, but a rainout and a shoulder strain halted those plans.

Evans remains optimistic that Sanchez will be back near the original target date of May 11. You can read Evans' quotes here.

Sanchez is 4-for-10 with three RBI in his rehab stint.


I am a bit puzzled by Sanchez's latest setback. It must have happened sometime after Thursday's double header because I saw him taking sprints, and he looked normal.

When he moved his arm during workouts, he looked just fine. Here is the video of him I took during the San Jose Giants pregame.

I had the privilege of going on the field with NBC Bay Area Meteorologist Christina Loren for Weather Day. This gave me a chance to shoot the video of Sanchez, who was wearing jersey number 18 at the time.

How do you think he looks?
