"From what we hear, the surgery went well," Bochy said. "They repaired the labrum, and he should be ready for Spring Training."
The operation brings a definitive end to Sanchez's 2011 season. The second baseman played 60 games, batting .289 with a .730 OPS (on-base plus slugging percentage). Head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner had previously said Sanchez would need a few weeks to let the injured area "calm down" following surgery. He injured the shoulder diving for a ground ball June 10 and attempted to rehab it before opting to surgically repair it.
Sanchez has dealt with a number of injuries during his time with the Giants. He underwent surgery on his left shoulder twice in a year, most recently in December -- a procedure that slowed him in Spring Training this year.
