CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Pablo Sandoval is still seeking a contract north of $100 million.
That's the figure that Heyman reported in the spring. It's not surprising that his asking price would start around there, but whether Sandoval winds up getting close to that figure remains to be seen. The Giants offered him a three-year deal in the vicinity of $40 million this spring, but they'd surely be willing to up that proposal. Sandoval could wind up taking a little less to remain in San Francisco, though the Red Sox are expected to bid aggressively. Oct 31 - 4:04 PM

Pablo Sandoval set a postseason record with a huge night in Wednesday's World Series Game 7 win, going 3-for-3 with two runs scored as the Giants edged the Royals 3-2 for the title.

Sandoval broke a four-way tie with Marquis Grissom, Darin Erstad and David Freese when he doubled for his MLB-record 26th hit of the postseason (and third hit of the game) in the top of the eighth inning. Prior to that, Sandoval had two singles, a walk and two runs scored in the Game 7 win. For the series, Sandoval finished 12-for-28 (.429) with four RBI and six runs scored. It was a performance that will serve him well financially heading into free agency this winter.

CBS Sports' reports that the Red Sox are "prioritizing" impending free agents Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley.

The Red Sox are looking for an upgrade at the hot corner after their third basemen hit just .211/.271/.308 this season. They'll have plenty of competition, of course, as the Giants would like to re-sign Sandoval and the Yankees are interested in keeping Headley. Sandoval will obviously be the most expensive of the two and will also be attached to draft pick compensation, as the Giants are expected to make him a qualifying offer. Headley won't be attached to a draft pick since he was traded during the season. Heyman hears that the Red Sox could also look at Brewers' third baseman Aramis Ramirez if he becomes a free agent.

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and RBI single in Tuesday's victory over the Royals.

Sandoval got the scoring going with a two-base knock in the first inning that plated Gregor Blanco and capped off the scoring with an RBI single in the seventh. He could have easily been credited with a third hit, but his hard smash to Mike Moustakas in the ninth inning was changed to an error.
Oct 21 - 11:48 PM

Pablo Sandoval reached base four times Saturday, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Sandoval led off the top of the second inning with a double off Adam Wainwright, coming around to score what ended up being the game-winning run later in the inning. He added two more singles and a walk in his next four plate appearances. Sandoval seems to thrive under the bright lights of postseason baseball, and this series could be another opportunity for him to shine in advance of free agency this winter.
Oct 11 - 11:38 PM

Pablo Sandoval singled twice and scored the Giants' only run in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

Offense was hard to come by for San Francisco, as they managed just six hits on the day and only one extra-base knock (and that came in the ninth inning on a Hunter Pence double). Sandoval now has a 14-game postseason hitting streak, which is one behind Marquis Grissom's National League record.
Oct 6 - 8:03 PM

Pablo Sandoval is currently dealing with a sore hip.

It was evident throughout Monday's game, though he continued to play and went 2-for-4 with a double. It sounds like something the Giants will attempt to manage, but fantasy owners should keep the situation in mind.
Sep 16 - 8:51 AM

Pablo Sandoval homered and drove home a pair of runs, leading the Giants in an 8-2 romp over the Tigers on Friday.

Sandoval got the game's scoring started with an RBI single off Rick Porcello in the first inning then blasted his 16th home run of the season off Buck Farmer in the sixth. He finished the night 2-for-5, raising his season slash to .289/.332/.440 to compliment his 16 long balls and 66 RBI.
Sep 6 - 1:18 AM

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that extension talks between the Giants and Pablo Sandoval remain tabled.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported back in April that Sandoval was looking for at least $100 million on a five-year deal, which, not surprisingly, is something the Giants weren't interested in doing. At this point, the two sides will almost surely wait until the offseason to re-engage in negotiations. Sandoval has had an inconsistent but ultimately solid walk year, batting .288/.331/.434 with 15 homers and 64 RBI.
Sep 5 - 11:39 AM

Pablo Sandoval is not in the Giants' lineup Wednesday.

It's just a routine day of rest. Joaquin Arias is at third base Wednesday in Sandoval's place.
Sep 3 - 12:41 PM

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI and three runs scored in the Giants' lopsided 15-5 win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Sandoval had an RBI single in the third inning before lifting a two-run homer in the fifth. The home run was his 15th of the season and his first since August 6. He also tripled and scored in the game, raising his line to .291 with a .775 OPS.
Aug 31 - 9:50 PM

Pablo Sandoval went 1-for-5 with a run scored in the Giants' 3-2, 10-inning loss to the White Sox on Tuesday.

Sandoval, red hot in August, has now reached in 12 straight games. He came into the game having hit .356 in his last 11 games. Kung Fu Panda is slashing .282/.329/.435 overall, and is on pace for 19 homers and 75 RBI.
Aug 13 - 2:03 AM

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI to lead the Giants past the Brewers 7-4 on Wednesday.

That's three straight games with three RBI for Sandoval. He's 10-for-25 with five extra-base hits and 10 RBI in six games this month.
Aug 7 - 12:51 AM

Pablo Sandoval hit a three-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

Sandoval's three-run blast off Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson in the sixth inning tied the score at 3-3. It was his only hit in three at-bats, prolonging a six-game hitting streak. In that stretch, the third baseman is 9-for-24 with eight RBI and three runs scored. He's a streaky hitter, and Sandoval appears to be seeing the ball very well right now.
Aug 5 - 11:54 PM

Pablo Sandoval finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Giants beat the Mets 4-3 on Monday afternoon.

Sandoval hit a two-run double to right-center field in the top of the third inning against Mets starter Dillon Gee, singled in the seventh inning off Mets reliever Jeurys Familia, and then drove in the Giants' go-ahead run in the top of the ninth against Mets closer Jenrry Mejia. It was a big day for "Kung Fu Panda" and allowed the Giants to take three of four in New York. Sandoval is batting .280/.327/.429 with 49 RBI in 109 games this season.
