As San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is working his way back from his hamstring injury, he tried some light jogging before the Giants matchup with the Rockies on Friday, which did not go as accoring to plan.
Pablo Sandoval did a couple minutes of light jogging, now walking gingerly back to dugout. Might be longer than a 15-day injury.— Alex Pavlovic (@AlexPavlovic) August 3, 2012
Skipper Bruce Bochy noted on Thursday that Sandoval is already swinging the bat, though "he can feel it just a little bit" when he swings from the right side. He also mentioned that when Pablo starts running, that's when you get a better sens of where he's at. This is not a good sign for a speedy recovery for Kung Fu Panda.
Sandoval sustained the injury at first base this season, stretching out to make a double play, pulling his hamstring in the process. He's played in just 62 games so far this season, owning a .299 average with eight home runs and 33 RBI.
