Freddy Sanchez isn’t ready to retire despite lack of offers

Freddy Sanchez injured AP

Last month Freddy Sanchez‘s agent said “about 20 teams” requested the oft-injured second baseman’s medical records, but they must not have liked what they saw because the 35-year-old free agent remains unsigned.

However, yesterday agent Paul Cobbe told Andrew Baggarly of that Sanchez “is not looking to hang ’em up by any means” and is willing to sign somewhere as a bench player.

Sanchez hasn’t played since dislocating his shoulder in mid-2011 and had tons of injuries before that as well, so he’d no doubt have to settle for a minor-league deal. Cobbe called re-signing with the Giants a “dream scenario” for Sanchez, but it sounds like the feeling isn’t mutual.

    I’m sure the cardinals could use him if he came with a minor league contract. it would be insurance for 2B in case the matt carpenter move to second doesn’t work out and in case descalso still cant figure out how to hit.

    I’d love to see him back in Pittsburgh as a solid 2B backup for Neil.

    PRIDE OF BURBANK HIGH, BABY!!! Being a Giants fan, it was awesome to see him win the Series with them in 2010. He was a senior when I was a frosh, but he was always really cool with me. Good dude. I hope he’s gets a gig somewhere.
