Freddy Sanchez Injury Update: 'Minor' Setback Suffered By Second Baseman

Freddy Sanchez suffered a "minor" setback according to San Francisco Giants manager Brian Bochy on Monday per Andrew Baggarly from CSN Bay Area.

Sanchez felt soreness while making a throw in an extended spring game at Scottsdale on Monday. He was scheduled to play seven innings but came out after four.

"It's nothing major," Bochy said. "Just enough to back him off playing for a day or two."

The Giants second baseman was supposed to begin his rehab assignment and join the Giants Single-A affiliate on Tuesday.

Sanchez was originally scheduled to return in late April, but his timetable appears like it will be pushed back a tad bit due to this recent development.

The Giants placed Sanchez on the 15-day DL in late March, before the beginning of their season. Sanchez's surgically repaired shoulder was still causing pain in his minor league rehab games. Sanchez was a critical piece to the Giants' 2010 World Series squad, but has seen limited action since dislocating his shoulder in early June last year.

Currently the second base spot has been occupied by Emmanuel Burris who is currently hitting .333 in six games for San Francisco.
