Freddy Sanchez has played only 25 games in a Giants uniform despite being with the club since July 29 of last year. It was a shoulder injury that kept him sidelined in 2009 and knee surgery has him on the disabled list this month. Well, we finally have some good news on the 32-year-old second baseman.
According to the Associated Press, Sanchez has begun participating in games down at extended spring training and could rejoin the big league club in two weeks.
Sanchez is a .299/.334/.417 hitter in 2,500-plus career at-bats. He was inked to a two-year, $12 million contract extension this winter and is just about ready to show the Giants that he was worth the investment. Or, at least he’ll try.
