Burriss could be back this season Thursday, March 25 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Giants remain hopeful that infielder Emmanuel Burriss can play later this season after undergoing surgery last Sunday on his twice-fractured left foot. Groeschner said that Burriss will on crutches for 10 to 14 days before shifting to a walking boot. Had Burriss remained healthy, he would have had a strong chance of making the Opening Day roster, given his ability to play second base and shortstop with equal skill. Tags: Bruce Bochy, Emmanuel Burriss, Freddy Sanchez, Giants, Jeremy Affeldt, Kevin Frandsen Emmanuel Burriss and the Giants' medical staff will consider multiple options when they discuss the next move in the infielder's recovery from a broken bone in his left foot. Burriss, 25, consulted noted orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Robert Anderson on Tuesday in North Carolina. Dr. Anderson didn't urge any particular course of action, and Burriss isn't yet certain what he'll do. Burriss also mentioned the possibility that he could forgo surgery and be walking normally in two weeks. That's obviously far from a guarantee.

Burriss, who considered himself fully healed after breaking a bone in his foot last July, hit a two-run double in the fourth inning and stole third base. He left the game after doubling again in the sixth inning. With second baseman Freddy Sanchez (left shoulder) likely to begin the season on the disabled list and Juan Uribe expected to replace him in the lineup, Burriss entered Spring Training with a strong chance to make the Opening Day roster as a backup middle infielder.

Tags: Andres Torres, Brad Penny, Emmanuel Burriss, Giants, Jesus Guzman, John Bowker, Rich Aurilia, Waldis Joaquin Burriss, who fractured his fifth metatarsal while running the bases earlier this week while playing for Triple-A Fresno, will undergo surgery on Friday in San Francisco and is expected to miss at least two months. Burriss, 24, opened the season as the Giants' starting second baseman but was optioned to Fresno on June 16. He appeared in San Francisco's first 56 games but ultimately was compromised by his offensive inconsistency. He hit .238 in 61 games. With Fresno, Burriss hit .268 in 17 games. Despite his demotion, Burriss remained valued by the Giants for his speed, ability to switch hit and flair for the spectacular on defense. Tags: Aaron Rowand, Emmanuel Burriss, Giants, Ryan Sadowski, Wes Helms This was proven again in Randy Johnson's 300th victory on Thursday, which featured an outstanding and probably game-saving play by second baseman Emmanuel Burriss. With runners on first and second, nobody out and the Giants clinging to a 2-0 lead in the fifth inning, Burriss made a diving stop of Ronnie Belliard's one-hopper up the middle and shoveled the ball from his glove to shortstop Edgar Renteria to start a double play. "I think its hitting the mound helped me get to it," Burriss said, "because it was hit pretty hard and it took that high bounce off the mound and enabled me to gain some ground on it." Burriss said that Johnson's immediate reaction was muted. But the Big Unit made sure Burriss knew how much that play meant. "Right after the play he gave me one of those looks like, 'atta boy,' said Burriss, who added that Johnson was too mentally focused to gush over him or any other teammates in the dugout between innings. After the game, Johnson gave Burriss a proper tribute.

The alternative, which some teams might have selected, would have involved walking Burriss to face pitcher Matt Cain. But St. Louis refused to bypass Burriss, who singled home Lewis for what proved to be a key run (they all are in close, low-scoring games) in the Giants' 4-2 victory. Burriss actually wasn't surprised that the Cardinals pitched to him. "Cain swings the bat pretty well," Burriss reminded. More pop, indeed, Cain has hit four career home runs to one for Burriss. Burriss continued the Giants' recent productivity with two outs. They've recorded 22 of their last 30 RBIs in those situations.

Burriss sped into foul ground and snared the ball near the right-field bullpen.

"I think that's what makes him that good," said Giants' second baseman Emmanuel Burriss, who rapped a second-inning RBI single among his two hits while making only his fourth start in 43 games.
"He was moving the ball around, moving his sinker pretty well."
