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.
