    Freddy Sanchez injured

    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 CSNBayArea.com that Sanchez “is not looking to hang ‘em up by any means” and…

    Freddy Sanchez hasn’t played a game in the majors since June 10, 2011. The reason: shoulder and back surgeries, each of which can, independently, drain a big leaguer of any value he once had. But teams are willing, apparently, to at least give him a chance: Interest in free-agent second baseman Freddy Sanchez has picked up since the…

  4. The latest “oh noes, Melky can’t win the batting title!” column

    Sep 6, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Melky Cabrera

    The argument that Melky Cabrera should not be allowed to win the 2012 batting title because of his drug suspension was dumb a couple of weeks ago and it’s dumb again today. From Morosi: The batting race, though, is one instance in which MLB must act — and it doesn’t need to be that complicated.…

  5. We can’t let Melky Cabrera have the batting title/crown/award!

    Melky Cabrera

    In the name of all that is holy! Kenny Albert and Tim McCarver made it very clear during Saturday’s FOX Red Sox-Yankees broadcast that we can’t allow Melky Cabrera to win the NL batting title after his steroids suspension this week. In fact, it seems we need a new rule to prevent players who receive…

    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.

    Apr 23, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    freddy sanchez batting getty

    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…

    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?

    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.

  15. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Feb 16, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    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…
