Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Tallies three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

Sandoval thrived against his former team and recorded his second multi-hit appearance of the month, though it's also worth mentioning he's been relegated to a minimal role and has seen more than two at-bats in a game just thrice in May. The veteran has been making the most of his opportunity, though, hitting .286 with a .959 OPS despite recording just 49 plate appearances across 35 games during the month.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Pinch-hit home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit two-run home run in Saturday's 8-7 win over Philadelphia.

Sandoval stepped to the plate with two out in the ninth and cracked a game-tying two-run home run. He's been successful this year in a pinch-hit role with a .390/.389/.677 slash line.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Keeps delivering as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval delivered a three-run home run in his only plate appearance Thursday against the Marlins.

Sandoval entered the game as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning and homered to give Atlanta the lead. It was his third long ball of the season, all of which have come as a pinch hitter. Despite his heroics, Sandoval has only 10 plate appearances this season, which makes him far more valuable to Atlanta than to fantasy managers.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Another clutch homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval hit a two-run, pinch-hit home run in a 2-0 win over the Nationals during the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

He took Tanner Rainey deep in the top of the seventh inning to account for the only offense in the game. Amazingly, Sandoval already has two pinch-hit homers in 2021 after going yard only once in 34 games last year, but barring a rash of injuries, the 34-year-old seems very unlikely to get consistent playing time for Atlanta.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Rips pinch-hit homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval hit a two-run home run in his only plate appearance Thursday against the Phillies.

Sandoval came into the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and promptly clubbed his first home run of the season to right field. Atlanta's bats were largely held in check otherwise, though Sandoval figures to be primarily a bench bat unless the team is hit with significant injuries at first or third base.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Contract selected by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval's contract was selected by Atlanta on Saturday.

Sandoval was a non-roster invitee during spring training and earned a spot on the Opening Day roster by hitting .429 with three doubles and four RBI in 16 Grapefruit League games. The 34-year-old will serve in a depth role during the regular season and is unlikely to see regular at-bats.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Back with Braves on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval re-signed Sunday with the Braves on a minor-league contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The contract is worth $1 million at the MLB level.

Sandoval appeared in one game for Atlanta last season after he was added to the roster in late September following his release from the Giants. The 34-year-old corner infielder apparently made enough of an impression during his brief time with Atlanta for the organization to bring him back for spring training. He'll have the opportunity to compete for an Opening Day bench role with Atlanta, but Sandoval likely won't be in store for much work if he ends up making the roster.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Joining team, playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval will join the Braves and play third base Sunday against the Red Sox, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

We're still waiting on the Braves' lineup, but it sounds like the transaction has been completed and Sandoval is ready to suit up and make his team debut in the 2020 regular-season finale. Austin Riley has been dealing with a quad injury. Sandoval hit just .220/.278/.268 in 33 games with the Giants before being designated for assignment.

Braves' Pablo Sandoval: Lands minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Monday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Sandoval was released after being designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday, but the 34-year-old will extend his career as part of the Braves' organization. He'll begin at the team's alternate training site, but he could potentially join the active roster in a depth role at some point for a likely playoff run in 2020. Sandoval slashed .220/.278/.268 with five runs and six RBI during 30 games with the Giants this year.

Pablo Sandoval: Released by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval was released by the Giants on Thursday.

He was designated for assignment earlier in the day, so it naturally follows that Sandoval would rather be released than go work out for a minor-league salary over the final two-plus weeks at the alternate training site. This could spell the end of his big-league career.

September 10, 2020 01:32 PM
Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval was designated for assignment Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

This probably spells the end of the road for Sandoval, who had logged just 10 at-bats this month. He hit .220/.278/.268 in 33 games this year.

Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Playing time trending down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Sandoval made back-to-back starts at designated hitter to close out last weekend's series in Arizona, but those were the lone times he cracked the lineup in the Giants' last eight games. Wilmer Flores looks to have emerged as the Giants' preferred DH option over Sandoval, who has submitted a .535 OPS over 82 plate appearances on the season.

Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Powers Giants to win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, a walk, three RBI and one run scored Tuesday against the Angels.

Sandoval went yard in the second inning, taking Dylan Bundy out to right field. He followed that up with an RBI double in the ninth inning to extend the Giants' lead to 8-1. The pair of extra-base hits were Sandoval's first of the season, and he is now riding a modest three-game hitting streak. Sandoval has been unimpressive to start the season, hitting just .204/.279/.278 through 61 plate appearances.

Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Ready to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval (personal) is batting seventh as the designated hitter Friday against Oakland.

The veteran slugger was absent from the lineup the past few games due to family concerns, but he's back in the starting nine Friday. Sandoval has a .179/.267/.179 slash line through 45 plate appearances this season.

August 12, 2020 02:12 PM
Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval (personal) will remain on the bench Wednesday against the Astros, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

"Family concerns" were cited as the reason for Sandoval's absence from Tuesday's lineup, though he was able to make an appearance off the bench. He'll sit for the third straight contest Wednesday, with Hunter Pence starting in the designated hitter spot.

Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Absent for family matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros due to "family concerns," John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Sandoval will sit for the second straight game, with Wilmer Flores again serving as the designated hitter. It's not clear when he's expected to be available.

August 10, 2020 05:24 PM
Giants' Pablo Sandoval: On bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval will not start Monday's game against the Astros, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Sandoval will sit for the third time in the last four games. Wilmer Flores will serve as the designated hitter. Sandoval is hitting just .184/.273/.184 through 44 plate appearances this season.

August 9, 2020 05:12 AM
Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval will sit Saturday against the Dodgers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

While Sandoval is a switch hitter, it's clear that the Giants prefer him batting from the left side. He's started against just one of the seven lefties the team has faced this season but has been in the lineup against eight out of nine righties. Darin Ruf will be the designated hitter in this contest.

Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Sandoval doesn't seem to be the Giants' preferred option against southpaws such as Friday's starter Julio Urias, as he's started against just one of the six San Francisco has faced thus far. Wilmer Flores will be the designated hitter Friday.

August 7, 2020 11:20 AM
Giants' Pablo Sandoval: Draws third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval will start at first base and bat seventh Thursday against the Rockies.

The July 30 returns of Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria from the injured list haven't cost Sandoval much playing time yet, as he'll be making his fifth start in the Giants' eighth game since the two corner infielders were activated. However, manager Gabe Kapler's patience with Sandoval may wear off quickly if the 33-year-old doesn't start heating up soon. Sandoval is off to a 5-for-30 start to the season, with all of his hits being singles.
