Goddamnit all to hell!! Sandoval broke his right hamate bone last year nearly on the same date last year. What is it about playing the Marlins that we have to lose our best hitters? Gillaspie is in the lineup today so hopefully he can have a good 1st game or else Bochy won't play him again. This injury will again hurt the Giants greatly so the pitching needs to really step it up but more importantly the middle infield needs to pull their head out of their asses.Pablo Sandoval is scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday to repair his fractured left hamate bone.
The early timetable for his return is 4-6 weeks. Sandoval was hitting .316/.375/.537 with five homers and 15 RBI through his first 104 plate appearances this season and will be sorely missed in the San Francisco lineup. Conor Gillaspie, who was recalled from Triple-A on Thursday, will try to make up for some of the lost production.
