The Giants have (finally) placed Jonathan Sanchez on the disabled list.
Carlos Beltran has been activated from the disabled list.
Nate Schierholtz is injured with a hairline fracture in his right foot. From Andrew Baggarly’s Postgame Notes:
Nate Schierholtz is likely to avoid the disabled list, Giants Manager Bruce Bochy said. Bochy plans for the right fielder to contribute off the bench despite a hairline fracture in his right foot.
The calender is a major factor here. If the Giants believe Schierholtz can play in the near term, there’s little reason to put him on the DL when rosters expand in nine days.
Pat Burrell is going to begin rehab, tweets Joe Ritzo.
Pat Burrell batting third and starting at DH tonight for the SJ Giants … Plan is to get him four at-bats.
Tonight’s starting lineup:
Yes, that’s Orlando Cabrera leading off. Yes, that’s the collective tears of Giants fans everywhere that you see.
