Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval left last night’s game in the third inning after coming up limping running through first base on a ground ball double play. The foot has been bothering him for more than a week and he is now in a walking boot.  The Giants say he is day-to-day, but CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly suggests a stint on the disabled list is likely for Sandoval, who currently leads all NL third basemen in All-Star votes.

“To be honest, we need to get this to calm down,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said following a 6-2 victory at Arizona on Sunday. “You get an injury like this and try to get through it, you can end up losing him for a longer period of time.”

Sandoval also appeared resigned to his third consecutive season interrupted by the DL, saying he didn’t know what was next but trying to give it a couple days might not be the answer.

Some time off could be good for Sandoval, he he had a meager .464 OPS in his previous 11 games spanning 44 trips to the plate.

    Do it, get it done, fix it, no more half-measures. It’s the same thing as with Ryan Braun’s thumb–a few days off never seems to do the trick.

    All i know is the jays are 11 games back and there were actual people who are breathing who said they would win the Al East. I bet ya they all disappear by late July. Yea time is running out and this was a terrible pick by anyone with a brain

        He finds the agreed upon format…challenging.

    How did Pablo Sandoval originally hurt the foot? For now, I am going to work off the assumption it was a George-Foreman-grill-related mishap.

    All the trainers need to do is: 1) Wrap his foot in Bubble Wrap and 2) grind four extra-strength Aspirin into his pudding.

    No DL stint necessary.

      Maybe he likes the smell of bacon in the morning but doesn’t have a butler to, erm, buttle for him.

        He dropped the frying pan on his foot?
