Freddy Sanchez Injury: Giants To Sign Bill Hall To Take Sanchez's Roster Spot

According to Ken Rosenthal at Fox Sports, the San Francisco Giants will sign Bill Hall, late of the Houston Astros, to replace Freddy Sanchez on their 25-man roster.

The Giants’ infield has been decimated by injuries this year; Pablo Sandoval and Mike Fontenot are still out, although both are expected back soon.

Hall was released by the Astros one week ago on June 4. He hit just .224/.272/.340 for Houston in 147 at-bats, but hit 18 home runs in a part-time role for the Red Sox in 2010. Hall’s best season was in 2006, when he hit 35 home runs for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Hall is a 10-year veteran who has great versatility in the field; he can play shortstop, second base, third base or any of the outfield positions. He’s still just 31 years old, so he might have a chance to return to his better performing days, as he had with Milwaukee.
