Freddy SanchezMore bad injury news for the Giants, as second baseman Freddy Sanchez suffered a dislocated right shoulder after diving for a ground ball in the fifth inning of Friday's 3-2 victory over the Reds.

"I can't tell you how sever or how long," Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters fate the game, including the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman (via Twitter). "Obviously this is not good news."

It's really not. The Giants have struggled offensively and Sanchez led the team's regulars in batting average (.289) and had a hit before leaving the game on Friday. Sanchez had been hitting third for the Giants since Buster Posey's injury.

Another second baseman, Mike Fontenot, left his game with Triple-A Fresno on Friday with tightness in his groin, the same injury that caused him to go on the disabled list. Bochy told Schulman (via Twitter) that it's doubtful that either Fontenot or Pablo Sandoval would be ready to be activated by Saturday's game with the Reds.

With Sanchez out and Fontenot unavailable, Miguel Tejada could get some time at second.

Giants' Sanchez suffers shoulder injury

Actually, I heard he was going to petition Selig to outlaw position players from pitching in the 19th inning of games. Make Halladay and Lee pitch every day until their arms fall off. Or, call up a minor league pitcher at 1 a.m. and stop the game until he makes it to town.
