Sanchez begins rehab assignment

Second baseman Freddy Sanchez began his rehabilitation assignment at Class A San Jose by going 2 for 4 with two doubles and three RBI on Tuesday.

Sanchez, who has been battling shoulder and knee problems, grounded out and field out in his first two at-bats before hitting back-to-back doubles.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy was encouraged by Sanchez’s start, but it looks as if he’s not making any predictions on when Sanchez will be with the big club. The last time he did that, we all thought Sanchez would be in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

So if Bochy won’t predict, More Splash Hits will. We would expect Sanchez back with the Giants on May 21 when the Giants open a series at Oakland, or May 25 when they open a homestand against the Nationals.
