|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)|
