Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says infielder Freddy Sanchez has “plateaued” in his rehab, thus the decision to give him a cortisone shot. It’s very clear that Sanchez will not be ready for Opening Day. It’s time to see what Manny Burriss can do with his time at second base till the injured Sanchez can get back on the field. It’s unclear at this time as to how long he will be on the DL.
In another article, Schulman says Eric Surkamp‘s MRI results show no structural damage, and he should resume throwing in a week or two.
Schulman also points out that team officials believe they have found a potential starter in 27-year old Yusmeiro Petit, who hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2009.
Petit went 3-10 in 17 starts for the D-Backs in 2009, and has a career record is 10-20. Petit has pitched well in the Giants minor league camp, so the Giants are willing to take a longer look at him as a possible starter. Petit will get the start Wednesday against the Dodgers.
