Bruce Bochy on KNBR: Jonathan Sanchez, Carlos Beltran, Pat Burrell

Bruce Bochy appeared on KNBR earlier today with Murph and Mac, discussing — among other things — Jonathan Sanchez, Carlos Beltran, Pat Burrell, and Brandon Belt. You can listen to the interview here, but here are some brief notes:

  • The Giants¬†are willing to commit to Jonathan Sanchez as the fifth starter for the next start because they don’t really have another choice that is better. He’s probably going to go out there his next start, says Bochy.
  • On the possibility of Carlos Beltran hitting the DL, Bochy says that there’s always a chance of that happening. After receiving a cortisone injection, Beltran is doubtful for tomorrow but Bochy said he’d put Saturday as more realistic as far as him being in the lineup. Beltran himself doesn’t feel that the injury is that serious.
  • Any chance Pat Burrell returns to the scene? Bochy hasn’t heard back from Pat since he went to North Carolina to have [his foot] checked by another specialist. He’s going to talk to him today.
  • Asked about why Brandon Belt was optioned back to Triple-A, Bochy said that Brandon was having his struggles too — that he was “too closed off” and “it’s not like he was tearing it up here.” “He’s not tearing it up or so to speak to where we feel that he’s going to come up here and make a huge impact.”
