Lefty Sanchez nearing bullpen session
SAN FRANCISCO -- Jonathan Sanchez threw on flat ground from 90 feet before Monday's game against the Padres and hasn't suffered any setbacks in his rehab, but that doesn't necessarily mean the lefty will slide back into the rotation after the All-Star break.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sanchez, placed on the 15-day disabled list June 25 with bicep tendinitis, was feeling fine and is on track to throw a bullpen session in a few days. Bochy hasn't decided on his rotation following the Midsummer Classic, however, and didn't commit one way or the other when asked if Sanchez would be a part of it.

"I'll have to wait and really see how he's doing. That's a possibility, but it could take a little bit longer than that," Bochy said. "At this point, I have to rely on our training staff, our medical people and how Johnny's doing."
