PHOENIX (AP) -San Francisco Giants left-hander Jonathan Sanchez has an oblique injury that will likely end his season.
Sanchez reported the injury after retiring only one of the eight batters he faced in a 5-0 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night. Sanchez finished the first inning with the help of two putouts on the basepaths.
``He told us when he came in out of the first inning,'' Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. ``At this stage, it doesn't look like he'll pitch again, but we'll get it checked out when we get back (to San Francisco on Thursday). I'd say it's doubtful that he'll pitch the rest of the year, so he'll have some time to rest it.''
Sanchez (1-5, 5.88 ERA) gave up four runs and five hits with two walks in the 36-pitch inning.
``It hurts,'' he said. ``It's real sore.''
