Giants Injury Update: Hector Sanchez undergoing more concussion tests

By on 8/10/2014 06:00:00 AM

The San Francisco Giants entered Saturday's game against the Kansas City Royals with a record of 62-54, second in the National League West. At 19th in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Giants need to improved their offensive production in order to contend with the Dodgers down the stretch. There is concern on the injury front, as backup catcher Hector Sanchez, who is recovering from a concussion, is scheduled to undergo more concussion tests.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on August 6 that Sanchez,  who is recovering from a concussion suffered when a foul tip hit his mask on July 25, would continue his rehab assignment at Triple-A Fresno.

Henry Schulman, who covers the Giants for the San Francisco Chronicle, tweeted the following update on Sanchez.
In three rehab games at Fresno, Sanchez is 3-for-10 with a home run and three RBI. In 66 games with the Giants this season, Sanchez is batting .196 with three home runs and 28 RBI. He's a career .246 hitter with nine home runs and 82 RBI in 216 games.
