GLENDALE — Freddy Sanchez’ injury trials and tribulations continue, so much so that they have sparked debate with the San Francisco Giants as to whether trading and subsequently resigning the former Glendale Community College standout was the right move to make. Sanchez, the 32-year-old Giants starting second baseman, recently underwent left shoulder surgery, his second surgical procedure of the offseason, and is in doubt for the Opening Day lineup. On Thursday, Giants Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed to the Associated Press that Sanchez had indeed undergone an arthroscopic procedure on his left shoulder.

Glendale native and Oakland Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy is “alert, awake and resting comfortably” and “showing signs of improvement” after undergoing surgery to relieve pressure in his head, according to the team's website Thursday. McCarthy underwent surgery Thursday after a CT scan performed Wednesday night showed he suffered a skull fracture, brain contusion and epidural hemorrhage after he was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Los Angeles Angels batter Erick Aybar in a game earlier that day. "Our first concern is Brandon's health, and we are heartened to learn he has shown progress in his recovery after surgery," A's Vice President and General Manager Billy Beane said in a statement.

The surgery to help diagnose a Montrose boy’s elusive medical condition was unsuccessful Wednesday, his mother Natalia LoCicero said. The procedure had never been done on someone so young, and 4-year-old Reece LoCicero will likely undergo a different and potentially more invasive operation in a few weeks, she said. From the time he was 10 months old, Reece’s life has been marked with myriad of symptoms difficult for doctors to diagnose, including unexplained bleeding and sores.

GLENDALE - A 63-year-old Glendale man was in stable condition Monday after he apparently attempted surgery on himself with a six-inch butter knife in an attempt to remove a protruding hernia from his stomach, police said. The man, whose name wasn't released, was taken just after 7:32 p.m. Sunday to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was treated for his injury, according to Glendale police. When police arrived at the man's home on the 1000 block of Columbus Avenue, they saw the naked man lying outside on a lounge chair with what appeared to be the handle of a knife protruding from his stomach, Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

Joyce Rudolph FREMONT PARK -- George Putnam is back to work at KIEV 870 AM following surgery three weeks ago. The host of the radio station's "Talk Back" show, heard each weekday from noon to 2 p.m., had surgery at Pomona Valley Hospital to fuse the two top vetebrae in his neck. The surgery was to correct a college football injury that was later aggravated by riding Brahma bulls at the rodeo. Recently, Putnam tripped over a dog at his Chino ranch and that seemed to be the final straw.

The family of an 11-year-old Glendale boy who underwent a rare form of heart surgery in May returned to Children's Hospital Los Angeles this week to celebrate the success of his treatment with the La Cañada Flintridge cardiologist who headed up the procedure. Brian Frounzian was born with two defective valves on the right side of his heart, a condition that made it difficult for his body to mix oxygen with blood and that required multiple surgeries from the time he was just 3 weeks old. PHOTOS: Boy celebrates new heart valves following rare surgery When replacement valves began to wear out last year, Brian suffered fatigue and struggled to keep up with other kids his age, his 17-year-old sister, Ani Frounzian, said.

As he continued to languish on the disabled list since the beginning of the 2012 season while trying to return from right shoulder surgery and a subsequent back ailment, the prognosis seemed to become increasingly dim for San Francisco Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez' 11th Major League Baseball campaign ever getting started. Any remaining hope of seeing Sanchez on the field this season was snuffed out for good when it was reported on Thursday that the former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout underwent season-ending back surgery.

GLENDALE — The San Francisco Giants turned to Freddy Sanchez last season to help them win the World Series. If the Giants are to repeat as champions, they'll likely have to do so without the services of the former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout. Sanchez, a second baseman and a former National League batting champion, suffered a dislocated right shoulder while diving for a ball Friday during San Francisco's 3-2 home win against the Cincinnati Reds. The Associated Press reported the three-time All-Star might miss the remainder of the season and possibly require surgery.
