Hector Sanchez Resumes Rehab Assignment with Grizzlies
Hector Sanchez, who was recently moved to the 15-day DL, is back on a rehabilitation assignment. He recently passed concussion tests after taking yet another foul ball off of his mask last weekend, as reported by CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly:
Hector Sanchez cleared concussion tests and can resume rehab assgt for Fresno. Plan is to DH tonight and catch tomorrow.

Sanchez, who has been a proverbial magnet of foul tips, will spend some more time with the Grizzlies to make sure that he is in good health before returning to the Giants. Given the recent relapse with Brandon Belt’s concussion, the Giants should not rush Sanchez back too quickly.
Matt Cain’s Surgery is Successful
Matt Cain underwent surgery today to remove bone spurs and chips in his right elbow, a problem which had been lingering since his high school days. The surgery was successful, as reported by the Chronicle’s John Shea:
Bochy said Cain surgery went well, 3 months of rehab. Remove bone chips, clean up spurs. #sfgiants

As expected, Cain’s rehab will keep him out for the rest of the season, but he will be ready to go by the time Spring Training rolls around. Cain finishes out the season 2-7 with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.
