Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is a career .545 hitter against Padres left-hander Eric Stults.
Insight: Sandoval is struggling to get the bat going, hitting just .179 through the first 17 games, so may not be able to take advantage of this favorable matchup.
 
4/16/2014 11:21:00 AM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is the owner of a .375 average against Dodgers starter Paul Maholm.
Insight: Sandoval is 6-for-16 with two homers and a double against Maholm. The third baseman has batted .164 with two homers in 55 at-bats this season, but he's also shown more plate discipline (12.7 BB%). The low average is mainly the result of a .171 BABIP, which he's posted despite having a 25.6 percent line-drive rate.
 
4/5/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit his first homer of the season Saturday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Sandoval has gone 4-for-23 (.174) in his first six games, though he's drawn five walks already. The 27-year-old has never been known for his plate discipline and pitchers know that. Sandoval saw the lowest percentage of pitches in the strike zone of any qualified hitter in the majors last season, and it wasn't even close (33.9 percent for Sandoval, 38.2 percent for Giancarlo Stanton in second place).
 
3/25/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval sustained a gash on the palm of his right hand while diving and will miss Wednesday's game, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Sandoval should be OK by Opening Day on March 31. The 27-year-old is coming off a 2013 season in which he hit .278 with 14 homers, 79 RBI and a .758 OPS. Fantasy owners should pay for that production and hope he puts up something closer to the .315 average, 23 home runs and .909 OPS he had in 2011.
 
1/14/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval said he has dropped 42 pounds this winter, according to Rafael Rojas of MLB.com.
Insight: Sandoval is in search of a new contract, and GM Brian Sabean said in December the team would be willing to explore an extension with Sandoval provided he shows up to camp in good shape. The Giants third baseman dropped a ton of weight prior to the 2011 season and hit .315 with 23 homers, but he eventually regained everything he lost.
 
9/28/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has absolutely crushed Padres starter Eric Stults, going 10-for-19 (.526) with two doubles and a triple against the left-hander.
Insight: Sandoval has hit .274 with 14 homers, 77 RBI, 52 runs and a .750 OPS this season, but a matchup with Stults Saturday should help him add to those numbers a bit.
 
9/27/2013 6:35:00 PM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is in the lineup Friday after missing Thursday's game due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: Sandoval has hit .276 with 14 homers, 77 RBI, 51 runs and a .753 OPS this season. He's batted under .285 and hit fewer than 15 homers in three of the last four seasons.
 
9/25/2013 11:22:00 AM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is a career .467 hitter against Dodgers starter Ricky Nolasco with a pair of homers and a 1.663 OPS.
Insight: Its a second consecutive "down" year for Sandoval with a .273 batting average and just 13 homers. Fantasy owners don't like this trend, but Wednesday is a favorable matchup.
 
9/15/2013 11:02:00 AM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is a .545 hitter against Edinson Volquez.
Insight: He has gone 6-for-11 with three doubles against the Dodgers starter. Sandoval started out August 3-for-37 (.081) but he has gone 40-for-113 (.354) with a .978 OPS over his last 31 games.
 
9/14/2013 10:37:00 AM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is 6-for-13 (.462) with a pair of solo homers against Dodgers right-hander Ricky Nolasco.
Insight: Sandoval is having an excellent Saptember, batting .362 woth three homers and a 1.051 OPS.
 
9/8/2013 3:40:00 PM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is not in the lineup Sunday due to back soreness, according to Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com.
Insight: Sandoval has hit .367 (33-for-90) with four doubles, two triples, four homers, 20 RBI and a 1.019 OPS over his last 24 games.
 
9/4/2013 10:08:00 PM
Description: Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval exploded for four hits, including three homers, six RBI and three runs scored Wednesday against the Padres.
Insight: Sandoval came in with monster numbers against Thursday's starter Eric Stults so fantasy owners were expecting a big game, and he didn't disappoint. Sandoval had as many home runs Wednesday as he hit in his previous 80 games.
 
9/4/2013 11:43:00 AM
Description: It's been a disappointing season for Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Look for him to take out some of that frustration on Padres starter Eric Stults Wednesday at Petco Park.
Insight: He has monster numbers against Stults in 17 career at bats (.529 AVG, 1.365 OPS). We fully expect Sandoval (.271, 10 HR, 65 RBI) to extend his hitting streak to six games on Wednesday.
 
8/21/2013 5:26:00 PM
Description: The MRI on San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval's back came back clean, according to Alex Pavlovic of the Bay Area News Group.
Insight: Sandoval will miss Wednesday's game but could be back in the lineup Thursday.
 
8/21/2013 9:53:00 AM
Description: San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back soreness and is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Boston.
Insight: Sandoval is batting .316 over the past 11 days after a cold start to the month. He's batting .266 this season with nine homers and 59 RBI which is well below expectations.
 
Cold8/20/2013 9:47:00 PM

Insight: Sandoval is 12-for-29 over his last eight games but is still hitting just .227 in August. He hasn't homered since July 11.
 
Cold8/15/2013 10:19:00 AM
Description: San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 Wednesday after starting out 5-for-43 in August, and he has strong numbers against Thursday's starter Dan Haren of the Nationals.
Insight: Sandoval, who has just one homer in 48 games since the start of June, is 5-for-13 with a double and a triple against Haren. With a .261 average and a .694 OPS, Sandoval has been largely disappointing this season, but he should be active Thursday for fantasy owners.
 
Cold8/14/2013 10:28:00 PM
Description: San Francisco third baseman Pablo Sandoval's 3-for-4 game Wednesday against the Nationals was his first multi-hit effort of the month.

8/1/2013 6:17:00 PM

Insight: Sandoval hit .400 with four doubles, eight RBI and a 5/3 K/BB in his final seven games of July after hitting .186 (16-for-86) from June 25 to July 23.

Insight: Joaquin Arias replaced Sandoval in the top of the sixth inning. It doesn't sound like the injury is serious but we wouldn't be surprised if Sandoval gets the night off Thursday in the series finale.
