GLENDALE — The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players.
Freddy Sanchez (Glendale Community College, 1998) second baseman, San Francisco Giants: Despite not having Sanchez, a former National League batting champion and All-Star in the lineup since June 10 when he suffered a dislocated right shoulder diving for a ground ball, the defending-champion Giants remain in first place in the National League's West Division.
San Francisco would like to have Sanchez in the lineup, but is in a holding pattern.
Sanchez and the Giants (57-42) are still waiting to find out if he will return this season. According to the San Jose Mercury News, Sanchez and San Francisco aren't any closer to reaching a decision as to whether Sanchez will undergo surgery or continue rehabilitation in Arizona.
