    Pablo Sandoval strained his left hamstring while stretching for a throw at first base on Monday and the Giants have decided they won’t go short-handed on their roster any longer. Per Amy Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com, Sandoval was placed on the disabled list this afternoon while light-hitting infielder Emmanuel Burriss was designated for assignment and first…

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

    Ryan Theriot is back from the disabled list, as the Giants activated the veteran infielder following a minimum 15-day stay for an elbow injury. To make room on the roster San Francisco optioned Charlie Culberson to Triple-A after the rookie went 3-for-22 (.136) in his first taste of the big leagues. Prior to injuring his…

    Pablo Sandoval being out 4-6 weeks with a fractured hamate bone has the Giants thinking about creative ways to replace him, which is why second baseman Freddy Sanchez played third base yesterday on his minor-league rehab assignment. Sanchez has suffered numerous setbacks trying to recover from shoulder problems, so counting on him returning as a…

    Freddy Sanchez has had so many false starts and setbacks with his surgically repaired shoulder that recovery timetables seem sort of silly at this point, but the Giants have a new one anyway. Sanchez’s minor-league rehab assignment begins today and manager Bruce Bochy told Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com that the Giants have mapped out an…

  6. The Mets win a weird one

    The Mets beat the Giants 5-4 this afternoon, but whether anyone actually deserved to win, well, that’s up for debate. The Mets certainly appeared to be in control entering the top of the ninth, as Frank Francisco was handed a 4-1 lead after Mike Pelfrey tossed eight innings of one-run ball. However, Francisco was pulled…

  7. The Giants are shopping Ryan Theriot and Mike Fontenot

    Remember how I mentioned earlier that Ryan Theriot and Mike Fontenot were likely the favorites to share playing time at second base now that Freddy Sanchez is expected to begin the season on disabled list? Apparently not. Jayson Stark of ESPN.com reports that the Giants are telling teams that they are shopping both Theriot and…

  8. Giants worried Freddy Sanchez won’t be ready for opener

    Mar 19, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Freddy Sanchez injured

    Freddy Sanchez said throughout the offseason that he was optimistic about recovering from June shoulder surgery in time for Opening Day, but like so many “optimistic” updates from teams and players recently that’s now looking like wishful thinking. Sanchez missed the final three-plus months of last season and has yet to play second base this…

  9. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Coming off a disappointing 86-76 finish in 2011, the Giants’ big moves this winter were a pair of underwhelming trades: Jonathan Sanchez for Melky Cabrera and Andres Torres plus Ramon Ramirez for Angel Pagan. To say the least, they didn’t make the kind of splash their fans were hoping for (but have come not to…
