The San Francisco Giants have a number of important players on the disabled list, here’s a quick update on how they are doing in their rehabilitations:
Andres Torres: According to the San Francisco Chronicle Andres has been on a rehab assignment with AAA Fresno, and has looked good enough to be activated on Tuesday. His Achilles hasn’t been causing any problems and hopefully will be able to make an immediate impact for the G-Men.
Mark DeRosa: According to CSN Bay Area’s Amy Gutierrez DeRosa said he feels the best he has in a year, and also will be activated on Tuesday. His nagging wrist injury that has endured two surgeries over the past 2 years seemingly will always be a question mark for DeRosa, but the Giants desperately need another third baseman in their lineup ASAP.
Barry Zito: According to the San Francisco Chronicle Zito has thrown off flat ground the last two days in a row without any issues with his injured foot. He was checked by team doctors a few days ago and likely will be given the green light to throw bullpen sessions soon. He will require a few rehab assignment starts before returning to the Giants.
Santiago Casilla: Casilla has had problems with his elbow since the end of spring training, but threw a successful bullpen session Friday and likely will be scheduled for a simulated game soon. The Giants don’t necessarily need him back as they don’t have any room in the bullpen for him, but it’ll be nice to have another arm waiting and ready, possibly in Fresno.
Pablo Sandoval: Not much news on Pablo except his surgery was a success and his timetable for return varies from anywhere from 4-7 weeks depending on who you ask.
