Wilson gets more information about injury
SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants closer Brian Wilson has a "moderate" sprain of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, an injury that doesn't always require surgery, according to a CSNBayArea.com report Monday.

This hasn't stopped Wilson, who's expected to be out for the season, from seeking multiple opinions regarding his injury. Wilson, who indicated Sunday that he's favoring another Tommy John reconstructive procedure on his elbow, visited Dr. Lewis Yocum at the orthopedist's Southern California office Monday. Wilson also is scheduled to see Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., on Wednesday.

Another ailing Giant, second baseman Freddy Sanchez, endured what manager Bruce Bochy described as a "minor" setback when he felt soreness in his right shoulder Monday.

Sanchez, who dislocated his shoulder last June, experienced the discomfort while playing four innings in an extended spring training game in Arizona.

Bochy said that Sanchez likely would have started a Minor League injury rehabilitation assignment as early as Tuesday if all had gone smoothly. Instead, Sanchez will rest for a day or two and report to Class A San Jose on Wednesday or Thursday.
