San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has fractured the hamate bone in his left hand, according to multiple Bay Area media reports.

Sandoval was injured while swinging the bat in the Giants' 3-2 loss to Miami on Wednesday. He left the game in the seventh inning.
"He took a swing and had quite a bit of pain and had to come out," manager Bruce Bochy said after Wednesday's game. "There's a lot of concern here. We know what this guy means to our club and our offense."

Sandoval is hitting .316 and his five home runs, 14 RBIs and 16 runs scored are all team highs.

The injury comes almost exactly a year afrer Sandoval fractured the hamate bone in his right hand. That injury resulted in surgery and he missed 41 games.
