San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has a thing for ice cream sundaes and odd injuries. The Giants are doing their best to keep him away from both, though, the injury bug seems to creep up on the Venezuelan more often than they’d like.
The hefty Panda was complaining of arm pain recently and although the medical team didn’t feel it was too serious, all precautions were taken and Sandoval was examined thoroughly today. The result? An irritated nerve.
With Winter Ball and the World Baseball Classic already under his belt this offseason, Sandoval has had plenty of seasoning so a few days off – recommended by the Giants’ medical staff – shouldn’t be much of a detriment to the Panda’s Spring.
Sandoval is expected to return in a few days/week after some rest to alleviate some of the nerve pain. Sadly, that wont help ease the ear pain of his fellow teammates who’ll be stuck in the dugout with a hyper Pablo for three/four hours a day.
May the baseball God’s have mercy on their nerves.
