Found August 16, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
San Francisco Giants right-hander Sandy Rosario exited last night's contest against the Washington Nationals after being struck on the sternum by a line drive off the bat of Adam LaRoche. Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters -- including Chris Haft of MLB.com -- that, as a result of the comebacker, Rosario could be sidelined for a few days. The incident occurred in the seventh inning. LaRoche led off for the Nationals and drilled a 1-2 pitch from Rosario back up the middle. The ball hit the reliever square in the chest, but he was somehow able to pick it up and throw to first for the out. Rosario then slumped to his knees in obvious pain. He remained down for some time as he was attended to by the Giants' training staff. "I didn't have time to think. I didn't have time to react," said Rosario, 27. "I couldn't breathe for about four or five seconds." It sounds like Rosario will be unavailable for at least a few days as a result of the liner. It's to be determined if he'll require a stint on the disabled list as a result of the injury, as this will largely depend on how he feels over the next few days and responds to treatment.

San Francisco Giants: Giants need to resign Tim Lincecum

Despite his 6-12 record and 4.38 ERA, Tim Lincecum is part of the Giants future and needs to be resigned. His record and ERA look ugly, but upon further examination of his every start, it’s easy to see that he should be a 500 pitcher if given proper run support and good defensive support. Granted, Lincecum has been inconsistent this season, but 8 out of his last 10 starts have...

Fighting Fire With Fire: Why the San Francisco Giants Should Be Major Players for Robinson Cano

This is not going to be a popular article. History shows that players who make over 20 Million Dollars per year for multiple years, usually kill franchises in the long run.

They can literally buy everybody, and that means...

Sanchez, Giants rally to down Nats

Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez stepped to the plate with one thought in mind against Washington Nationals closer Rafael Soriano: Look for a fastball.

Sanchez's 1st homer of season lifts Giants past Nationals

You hear all the high-decibel rips on Hector Sanchez or "Hacktor" as some fans call him. He's never going to hit. He's too fat. No way that ham-fisted catcher can handle a championship-caliber staff. And you want to yell "For God's sake: He's 23. They brought him to the majors at 22 to back up a soon-to-be Most Valuable Player and he hit .280 on a...

Giants win shootout with Marlins 14-10

What was that Giants manager Bruce Bochy said about resting Buster Posey? Something about the club playing so many long games this season? Well Posey could snicker to himself on the bench. He picked a winner to sit out. You don’t play ‘em snappy when the final score is 14-10. At least the Giants came out on the winning end after slugging and slogging through nine long innings...

Giants Top Marlins in a Wild Night in Miami

The Giants scored 14 runs against the Marlins in their largest offensive output of the 2013 season. Both teams combined for 31 hits, 24 runs, seven doubles, three triples and three home runs.

Giants-Marlins Preview

The San Francisco Giants and Miami Marlins can partially attribute their disappointing seasons to struggling offenses that have scored fewer runs than any other in the NL.
