Freddy Sanchez Injury Update: Giants 2B Has MRI On Shoulder During Rehab Assignment

The San Francisco Giants had a positive outlook on the injury of their second baseman Freddy Sanchez last week.

The rehab program was supposed to last 18 days, after which Sanchez would join the Giants for a series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. With each day, that looks less and less likely to work out.
