|Pablo Sandoval appears despite illness |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval was not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Nationals due to an illness, but he was able to appear as a pinch-hitter. Sandoval grounded out to third base in the eighth inning of a 2-1, 10-inning loss.
Sandoval is expected to be fine, especially with an off-day Thursday.

|Pablo Sandoval mashes eighth homer|
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/13) Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit his eighth homer, a walk-off two-run shot to give his club an extra-inning victory Tuesday against Washington.
Sandoval finished 2 for 5 with a run scored and two RBI. Sandoval didn't strike out in his five at-bats and his strikeout rate is down to 9.1 percent of plate appearances, which would match his career low from his rookie season in 2008, when he hit .345.
|Pablo Sandoval plays through flu bug|

(5/21/13) Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval played through a bout of the flu Monday, MLB.com reports. Sandoval's condition is considered mild, as he picked up two hits against the Nationals in an 8-0 win.
Sandoval went 2 for 5 with two singles and is batting .305. He's recorded six hits in his last four games and is up to 32 RBI on the year.
|Pablo Sandoval's power swing has arrived|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/13) Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval homered for the third straight game Tuesday at Toronto. Sandoval was also able to extend his hitting streak to seven games.
Sandoval is batting .286 (8 for 28) with three home runs and five RBI in his last seven games, but he's been hitting much better longer than a week.
In his last 16 games, Sandoval is batting .369 (24 for 65) with a .585 slugging percentage. His batting average has gone from .276 to .316 in that span. He also has two doubles, four home runs, 11 RBI and 14 runs in that span.
|As he is about to enter his sixth season in the major leagues, Pablo Sandoval isn't getting any easier to get a bead on. In 2009 and 2011, the Panda wowed Fantasy owners with 20-plus homers and batting averages well in excess of .300. But in the seasons immediately following those two campaigns, his numbers trailed off decisively. He has also hurt owners in each of the last two seasons with time missed due to injuries, and in 2012 a broken hamate bone and a strained hamstring contributed to him sitting out 54 games. The one thing we can expect from Sandoval is a low strikeout rate, so even when he struggles to hit for power he can be counted on for at least a decent batting average. That's not enough to make Sandoval an elite third baseman, but the potential for extra-base power does make him a top 10 option at the position. (Updated 12/7/12)|
