More bad news for Freddy Sanchez

Jan 22, 2010, 12:31 AM EDT

Giants manager Bruce Bochy revealed to San Francisco’s KNBR Radio late Thursday evening that second baseman Freddy Sanchez underwent an arthroscopic procedure recently on his left shoulder and might not be ready by Opening Day.

“He’s going to be a little delayed,” Bochy said in a phone interview.
“It’ll be close if he can go opening day or not.”

Sanchez also had knee surgery back in September and has played in only 25 games since joining the Giants on July 29, 2009.  To make matters worse (at least for San Francisco GM Brian Sabean), Sanchez signed a two-year, $12 million contract extension on October 30.  Juan Uribe will have to fill in at second base while his overpaid teammate works back to full health.

    Omar Minaya Planned this all out: Trade Upcoming between the Mets and the Giants: Wait for it: Molina for Castillo. Two sub-par players filling the needs of both teams. Awesome deal. I am sure Molina will compliment Smoltz. Why the Mets would ever think about signing Smoltz is beyond my understanding. Smoltz is the Enemy. It is like having Don Maloney be the General Manager of the New York Islanders. You just do not do it.
