Matt Baker of the Tampa Times reports that Sands is expected to miss at least three weeks, which is a shame because the 26-year-old probably deserves a bigger opportunity than he’s gotten thus far from the Rays, Pirates, and Dodgers.
Sands has spent parts of four seasons at Triple-A, logging more than 1,500 plate appearances there while averaging 30 homers per 150 games with an .832 OPS. If nothing else as a right-handed hitter he’d have been a nice fit versus left-handed pitching, but now Brandon Guyer looks likely to get most of the playing time in DeJesus’ absence.
