Giants: Injury Update As Opening Day Looms

The San Francisco Giants have had a few minor injuries throughout spring training. So with Opening Day two weeks away, it’s time we update the statuses of a few specific injured players.

  • Pablo Sandoval should be ready for Opening Day, reports Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News. An MRI revealed that Sandoval has a bone spur in his throwing elbow, and a chronic one that is. While Sandoval doesn’t have a clear idea as to when he will return, Bruce Bochy is confident that he has enough time to recover in time for April 1.
  • Jose Mirjares is in the same boat as Sandoval in terms of being ready for Opening Day. He is currently dealing with a left elbow impingement, but will face hitters Wednesday, according to Pavlovic.
  • Hector Sanchez is the big mystery. According to Pavlovic, Sanchez has no set timetable for his return, which is certainly a concern because April 1 isn’t too far off. The good news is that he’s set to DH in a minor league game on Wednesday, and he hopes to start throwing later this week.
