Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a walk-off home run in Sunday's win over the Padres. Sandoval's struggles in Boston are well-documented -- while it wasn't all roses since returning to San Francisco, he wrapped up the 2017 campaign with an impressive 11-game stretch (.385/.390/.744 with three homers and 12 RBI). It is unclear whether the 31-year-old's late push was enough to put himself in the team's 2018 plans.
Sandoval batted third and went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a pair of RBI in Wednesday's loss to Arizona. Hunter Pence and Buster Posey got the day off, so Sandoval was asked to carry the offense Wednesday. He was up to the task, but it was all for naught after the bullpen squandered another late-inning lead. Despite the Giants' ongoing woes, the corner infielder has been trending in the right direction over his last eight games, batting .407 (11-for-27) with six extra-base hits and nine RBI over that span. Sandoval appears primed to continue his hot streak this weekend, with three right-handed pitchers slated to toe the rubber for the Padres in a series between the NL West basement dwellers.
Sandoval is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. Sandoval owns a woeful .362 OPS against lefties this season, so it should not come as a surprise that he is sitting out Tuesday against one of the league's top left-handers in Robbie Ray. Orlando Calixte will man the hot corner in Sandoval's place.
Sandoval is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Sandoval has been heating up lately, going 8-for-15 with four extra-base hits and five RBI over his last four starts, but he'll give way to Ryder Jones at first base against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu.
Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Wednesday's win over the Rockies. Don't look now, but Sandoval appears to be heating up at the plate, going 7-for-11 with three extra-base hits over his last three contests. His recent hot streak comes on the heels of an atrocious 36-game stretch where he slashed .174/.223/.256.
