Coming into the Spring, reports were that Freddy Sanchez most likely wouldn’t be ready for Opening Day. However, according to Freddy himself, he’ll certainly be in the lineup:
"Freddy Sanchez says “oh, definitely” he will be ready for opening day. Hitting no problem. No timetable to begin throwing to bases, though."
"F Sanchez feels he’s way ahead of schedule. Was throwing 3 days a week with some discomfort. Now 5 days a week with no problem."
No word on if Sanchez’s off-season training regiment included that of installing a bionic arm, but if so – get an elbow piece for Brian Wilson.
Hopefully Dave Groeschner and company stocked up on WD-40 and inflatable human sized bubbles.
