After rain delayed game one of this three game series against the St. Louis Cardinals, the San Francisco Giants had to prepare themselves for an unexpected double header and injuries.
Third basemen, Pablo Sandoval, is expected to miss a week due to a left foot strain after having a MRI. Sandoval is batting .288, has eight home runs on the year, and has driven in 37 runs for the Giants. The disabled list isn’t ruled out for him just yet.
Center fielder and lead off hitter, Angel Pagan, is still nursing a sore hamstring strain and is hoping to return to the line up any day now. Pagan has been hitting .262, has three home runs on the year with 24 RBIs.
