Duaner Sanchez’s MRI results are in and showed a hairline fracture to a small bone in the front of his shoulder. Surgery will be needed and it will entail inserting a small screw in the shoulder.
GM Omar Minaya said Sanchez could rehab in another 6 to 8 weeks, and it would be another 6 to 8 weeks after that until he could get in a game.
Minaya said the area could have been weakened by the taxi accident, July 31, and the crack developed when Sanchez started throwing.
“It was a combination of things,” Minaya said. “If you ask me, it was going to happen at some point in time.”
