 San Francisco Giants infielder Kevin Frandsen ruptured his left Achilles' tendon in a minor league game Monday and could miss the entire season.
Frandsen, who was expected to be a key utility infielder and perhaps start at times at second base, injured his leg while running the bases after getting aboard on a single.
``I'll have to wait for the MRI exam, which could be today or tomorrow depending when the swelling goes down,'' general manager Brian Sabean said in a phone interview. ``I don't want to comment further until we know.''
Frandsen had already been nursing soreness in his Achilles. Before his injury, the Giants were planning to keep infielder Eugenio Velez on the roster, but his role could be greater now that Frandsen is out.
The 25-year-old Frandsen, who came to camp in the best shape of his young career after a rigorous offseason regimen, was counting on having a major role for the rebuilding Giants. He has played only parts of two major league seasons the past two years, but appeared in 109 games for San Francisco in 2007 and batted .269 with five homers, 31 RBIs, 12 doubles and a triple.
