Giants' Sanchez has left knee surgery
The operation was performed in San Francisco on Wednesday by team orthopedist Dr. Ken Akizuki.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the surgery went as expected and that Sanchez should be ready for spring training
Sanchez, who was acquired by San Francisco in a trade with Pittsburgh on July 30, sustained the non-contact injury in the first inning of the Giants' 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Sept. 21. He was helped off the field immediately after Mark Reynolds of the Diamondbacks hit a two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the inning.
