Looks like the Giants catch a break by putting Zito on the 15-day DL today, as Jonathan Sanchez will pitch in his place once activated from his rehab stint with Fresno.
In his last three starts, Zito has gone 0-3, and has allowed 19 earned runs, six home runs, 21 hits and eight walks in just 15.2 innings. Just flat out terrible. Maybe some time away from baseball is what he needs.
In other news, Freddy Sanchez (who attempted to rehab through his shoulder injury) will undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season. He is expected to return in time for spring training, but things don't look good for the second baseman.
