Sanchez (biceps) was scratched ahead of his scheduled rehab appearance Tuesday for Triple-A Sacramento after developing a blister on his right middle finger during a recent throwing session, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. The blister previously prevented Sanchez from making a rehab start a week earlier, and it may have reopened while he was playing catch a few days ago. The Giants aren't viewing the setback as a significant one for Sanchez, who is simultaneously working back from right biceps tightness. That being said, finger issues aren't a new concern for Sanchez, who was limited to just 36 innings with the Blue Jays in 2017 on account of recurring blisters.
The Giants transferred Sanchez (biceps) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday. After making his third rehab start at Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Sanchez looked to be close to rejoining the big club, but the Giants' decision to move him to the 60-day IL will delay his potential activation until early July. The Giants haven't indicated that Sanchez suffered a setback in his outing Thursday, even though he lasted just 1.1 innings while giving up four runs on four hits and three walks in the rehab start. He'll get approximately two more weeks to iron out the kinks at Triple-A before the Giants consider bringing him back.
Sanchez (biceps) will pitch for Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Manager Gabe Kapler said Sanchez is feeling much better after exiting Thursday's rehab start with a blister. It's unclear exactly how much rehab work the righty will require before he's ready to rejoin the Giants. It's unclear whether he'll return in a starting or relief role.
Sanchez (biceps) exited his rehab start Thursday with a blister, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Sanchez left the outing after completing only 1.1 innings on 50 pitches. The good news is that the injury is not an aggravation of his biceps issue, though he will likely still remain sidelined for some additional time.
Sanchez (biceps) exited his rehab start at Triple-A Sacramento with a trainer Thursday, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports. Sanchez exited the game after completing 1.1 innings and throwing 50 pitches. It's not clear how deep into the game he was slated to throw, but it was a premature exit after he called for a trainer who went on to examine his hand. It's unclear how long the setback will push back Sanchez's timetable to return, though the preliminary indications are that this was not an aggravation of his original injury.
