UPDATE: The worst fears are realized: broken hamate bone. He’s likely to miss several weeks.

10:00 AM: This could be bad news for the Giants: a team that already struggles to score runs could be without their biggest offensive threat for a while.

Pablo Sandoval left in the sixth inning of Wednesday’s game after injuring his left hand. And Bruce Bochy sounds worried:

“He took a swing and had quite a bit of pain and had to come out,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “We’ll know more [Thursday]. There’s a lot of concern here. We know what this guy means to our club and our offense.”

He had a brace on it after the game.  If he and his .316/.375/.537 line are gone for any extended time, the Giants are gonna have some problems.

    First the right hamate bone a year ago. Now the left hand. This feels like Ground Hog Day.

    Hopefully it is not a hamate bone again.

    Confirmed that it is a hamate bone fracture.
