Sanchez to be activated Wednesday
SAN DIEGO -- Manager Bruce Bochy officially announced that Freddy Sanchez will be activated from the 15-day disabled list before Wednesday's series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks, though the second baseman isn't assured of starting.
"I'll talk to him and see where he's at, how he's doing," Bochy said of Sanchez, who has recovered from left shoulder surgery. Sanchez played seven games on an injury rehabilitation stint with high-Class A San Jose and Triple-A Fresno, batting .450 (9-for-20) with both teams.
Bochy said after the Giants' 7-6, 12-inning victory over San Diego that the club would wait until Wednesday to announce a corresponding move to Sanchez's activation. Two players who seemed vulnerable to being sent back to Fresno, infielder Ryan Rohlinger and infielder-outfielder Eugenio Velez, both contributed to the defeat of the Padres. Rohlinger delivered a two-out, pinch-hit single that prolonged the 12th inning, when the Giants scored three times to snap a 4-4 tie. Velez singled to drive in the inning's final run.
