Sandy Rosario has missed the last few days due to leg weakness.

"He’s had an MRI, seen different doctors," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "He just doesn’t have a lot of strength in his legs right now." Rosario was in street clothes in the Giants locker room Wednesday, and reports said he could barely walk as a result of the affliction. This doesn't help Rosario's chances of making the club out of spring.
