SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Here’s the latest injury updates for the San Francisco Giants following their loss to the Florida Marlins on Friday night:

* Third baseman Pablo Sandoval (injured foot) homered in his rehab game with Class-A San Jose on Friday night and it’s possible he may be activated when the Giants open their series in Los Angeles against the Dodgers on Monday night.

* Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford threw from up to 120 feet to test two sprained right fingers and should be back in the lineup Saturday. “It still doesn’t feel good when I’m throwing,” he said. “I don’t have much behind it.”

* RHP reliever Santiago Casilla (right knee surgery) was set to throw a bullpen Saturday, likely facing hitters early next week, then have two or three rehab outings before returning – perhaps by the end of the next road trip that ends July 4 at Cincinnati.

* RHP Chad Gaudin wore a special sleeve over his pitching elbow Friday, a day after taking a line drive off the area. He planned to play catch Saturday and throw his bullpen on schedule Sunday with the hopes of making his next start. “I’m assuming, I’m planning on it,” he said. “I’m optimistic.”
