Guess Who’s Back? Giants Place Hector Sanchez on the DL

By Melissa Felkins

According to the Mercury News, the Giants have placed Hector Sanchez on the disabled list after he sprained his left knee in last night’s gamein Atlanta. Eli Whiteside is on his way to join the team in Atlanta.

This will no doubt come as a blow to Bruce Bochy, who has preferred Sanchez’s bat over Brandon Belt‘s bat in recent games, playing Buster Posey at first instead of Belt and using Sanchez behind the plate. Belt should see more playing time, but you can bet, if Bochy prefers Whiteside’s bat over Belt’s, Belt better start packing his bags and preparing for the Fresno heat, pronto. Angry Giraffe!

Nah, Bochy wouldn’t do that, right?
