Freddy Sanchez isn’t ready to retire despite lack of offers

Last month Freddy Sanchez’s agent said “about 20 teams” requested the oft-injured second baseman’s medical records, but they must not have liked what they saw because the 35-year-old free agent remains unsigned.

However, yesterday agent Paul Cobbe told Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com that Sanchez “is not looking to hang ’em up by any means” and is willing to sign somewhere as a bench player.

Sanchez hasn’t played since dislocating his shoulder in mid-2011 and had tons of injuries before that as well, so he’d no doubt have to settle for a minor-league deal. Cobbe called re-signing with the Giants a “dream scenario” for Sanchez, but it sounds like the feeling isn’t mutual.
