Pablo Sandoval Injury: MRI Confirms Hamstring Strain, Will Wait Until Friday For DL Decision

Just when he was starting to look to get into a serious groove, San Francisco Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval will miss at least the next few games after an MRI on Wednesday revelaed a left hamstring strain for Kund Fu Panda.

Per CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly on Twitter:

There isn't anyone of the current roster that could replace his offensive production at the plate, though this could be the opportunity Brandon Belt needs to keep him in the lineup day-in and day-out. Aubrey Huff could provide some relief, but don't expect much production from him at all. This will also mean a lot of a Joaquin Arias/ Brandon Crawford duo on the left side of the diamond as well.

Sandoval injured himself Tuesday night by doing the splits while making a beautiful double-play at first base. He is currently batting .299 with 8 home runs and 33 RBI.
