Pablo Sandoval hit his second home run for the Fresno Grizzlies in his rehab assignment, but Mike Fontenot did not play due to a re-aggravated groin injury.

Sandoval, out since April 29 with a fractured right hand, went 1-for-4 with a solo home run off the Salt Lake Bees' Ryan Ketchner. The Giants have discussed moving Sandoval, who was hitting .313 with five home runs before his injury, to catcher when he returns to the Giants.

While Sandoval's rehab seems to be going according to schedule, Fontenot appears to have suffered a setback. Out since May 25, Fontenot started for the Grizzlies in Friday's loss to Salt Lake, but left in the fourth inning. He did not appear in Saturday's game and there is no word on the severity of his injury.
