Found June 09, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:
The San Francisco Giants are limping in the NL West standings, and their 2012 World Series MVP is limping in the clubhouse.  According to a series of Tweets by Comcast Sportsnet Giants beat writer Andrew Baggarly, Kung Fu Panda looks like he’ll be out for a while as his left foot is not healing. Bochy said new MRI on Sandoval showed foot strain wasn’t more severe, but manager sounded as if going day-to-day wouldn’t be a good idea. — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) June 9, 2013   Sandoval is in a walking boot again. — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) June 9, 2013   The disabled list is a strong possibility for Pablo Sandoval. Story: csnbayarea.com/blog/andrew-ba… — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) June 10, 2013 This is frustrating news for the defending World Series champs, as the NL West appears to be theirs (or anyone’s) for the taking, with the surprising Arizona Diamondbacks sitting atop the division with the worst division leading record (among the six divisions) at 35-28.  The Giants and the Rockies sit 1.5 games back, even the lowly Los Angeles Dodgers in last place are only 7.5 games back of the Salt River Snakes. Sandoval needs some divine intervention to avoid the DLCredit: (AP/Jose Luis Villegas) Sandoval first experienced the injury on May 30th, but in four games since then, he’s only scratched out 4 singles with no extra base hits.  Seems like this isn’t going away without extended time off, and with the team seemingly able to hang around without playing their best baseball, it would make sense to get their big guy back fully healthy for the second half.  I wouldn’t hesitate at all to shelf him until the All Star break and hit the second half of the season running…hopefully on a good foot.  Note that Sandoval is leading the NL Third Basemen in All Star votes.  In last years’ game, he hit a bases clearing triple against Detroit Tigers righty Justin Verlander as part of a 5-run first that, ironically, got his ball club World Series home field advantage against the Tigers. - David Whitlock (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter (@rbts_baseball) The post Pablo Sandoval foot in bad shape, DL-stint a certainty appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
