Giants: Freddy Sanchez Might Play Thursday Or Friday; Buster Posey Could Be In Lineup By Weekend

"Manager Bruce Bochy said Freddy Sanchez likely will play in an exhibition game later this week, and Buster Posey could join him.

Bochy is eyeing Thursday or Friday for a possible spring debut by Sanchez, who is recovering from shoulder surgery. Posey's recovery from ankle surgery took another step Monday, albeit a cautious one.

Using a padded mat, Posey practiced sliding for the first time since last May's season-ending injury. He later moved from the grass to the dirt and simulated baserunning.

But Posey didn't actually run the bases, instead circling the outer edge of the infield. Bochy said Posey, who appeared to have a slight limp when approaching maximum effort, could run the bases Tuesday."
