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.

        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?
