Rehabbing Sanchez sees time at third base
LOS ANGELES -- The Giants continued experimenting with erstwhile second baseman Freddy Sanchez, who played seven innings at third base in an extended spring training game Wednesday in Arizona.

It would seem unlikely that Sanchez, who has struggled to make the throw on the double-play pivot, could fire a long throw to first base with sufficient strength.

"We'll continue to evaluate how he looks," Bochy said of Sanchez, who hasn't played third since 2006, when he won the National League batting title with Pittsburgh.

Sanchez was removed from his Minor League injury rehabilitation stint last week when he experienced a physical setback with his surgically repaired right shoulder. Sanchez, 34, dislocated the shoulder in a June 10 game against Cincinnati.
