Recommendation: Sandoval was placed on the DL June 11 after not seeing sufficient progress resting his strained foot on the bench. There was initial confusion over the severity of the injury, but that was erased by his quick recovery and ability to resume baseball activity. In his two rehab starts for High-A San Jose, he went 4-6 with two home runs and is now ready to return after spending the minimum amount of time on the DL. Nick Noonan, who was brought up to fill in for Sandoval, was optioned back down to make room for him.
