Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Friday's win over the Marlins.

We don't want to say that Sandoval owns Nate Eovaldi, but he's now 8-for-11 with nine RBI against him lifetime. "Kung-Fu Panda" faded a bit earlier this month, but he's hitting .414 (12-for-29) with two homers, one double, and seven RBI over his last seven games.

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a run scored in a win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Sandoval had three singles and also walked in the game, reaching base four times. He's 10-for-24 in his last six games heading into the break. On the year, the third baseman is batting .272/.323/.428 with 11 home runs. His numbers are still down from a miserable April, and they should only get better in the second half.

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and three RBI against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Sandoval has slowed down in the power department after his May outburst (he hit six homers in an 11-game span), but even so, he has 11 homers on the season, leaving him just three shy of his 2013 total. He has a realistic chance of reaching 20 homers for the first time since 2011 and third time in his career.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy is hoping to have Pablo Sandoval (elbow) available off the bench Monday.

However, Sandoval is currently still unable to fully extend his left arm, so it seems unlikely. He remains unlikely to need a DL stint, but it's unclear when Sandoval will be ready to play third base again.

Pablo Sandoval (elbow) is not in Monday's lineup against the Athletics.

Pablo Sandoval (elbow) is not in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Sandoval had to leave Saturday's game after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch. X-rays came back negative, but he's obviously still sore. Joaquin Arias is filling in at third base Sunday. Buster Posey is also sitting out Sunday, but it's just a day of rest for him.

X-rays taken Saturday night on the left elbow of Pablo Sandoval came back negative.

Sandoval had to leave Saturday's game against the Padres after being hit by a pitch in his first plate appearance. He feels sore, according to Giants manager Bruce Bochy, and is questionable to play Sunday. But the third baseman should be fine eventually.

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-3 with a walk, homer and two RBI as the Giants topped the Cardinals 5-0 on Tuesday.

This was only Kung Fu Panda's second homer since May 31. We'd been waiting for the power to return after Sandoval corked six homers between May 1-30. The rotund third baseman is floating along as a passable mixed league fantasy starter, slashing .271/.323/.431 and putting up a 20 homer pace.
Jul 2 - 1:00 AM

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-5 and knocked in a pair of runs as the Giants topped the Diamondbacks 6-4 on Saturday.
