Giants to sign Pablo Sandoval to a minor league deal

Giants to sign Pablo Sandoval to a minor league deal”

On Wednesday evening, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reported that the Giants are signing Sandoval the same day the Boston Red Sox announced they released the former San Francisco third baseman.

"Yeah, I think Bobby (Evans) has looked into it". "He's not switch-hitting anymore, he's gone all left-handed".

The Red Sox have struggled at third base this year, having traded Travis Shaw to the Milwaukee Brewers for relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg, who has missed the entire season with a shoulder injury.

Sandoval signed with Boston and left San Francisco shortly after he caught the final out of the 2014 World Series. Sandoval played just 161 games in two and a half seasons with the Red Sox, hitting.237/.360/.646 with 14 home runs.

Sandoval, who will turn 31 years old on August 11, is owed $18 million in 2018 and 2019, and $17 million in 2020 (or a $5 million buyout). He was offered an assignment to Triple A Pawtucket but refused. The two-time All-Star hit 14 homers with 59 RBI with 237/.286/.360 slash line in 161 total games for the Red Sox, who still owe him almost $40 million. He was hitting.212 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 32 games this season.
