San Francisco Giants: 5 best landing spots for Pablo Sandoval
Against all odds, San Francisco Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval has emerged as a legitimate trade candidate. Which contenders will come calling?
Ever since he returned to the San Francisco Giants, Pablo Sandoval has been great.
So great that he could be an All-Star this season. That’s due in no small part to the fact that he’s playing for a not-so-great Giants team, but he has still been extremely productive.
The 32-year-old is hitting .275/.312/.557 with 13 doubles, eight home runs and 23 RBI in 141 plate appearances on the year.
His journey has been a tumultuous one since he first left the Giants to sign a massive contract with the Red Sox following the 2014 season, only to find his way back to San Francisco when he flopped in Boston.
Now we’ve come full circle, with it once again looking like Sandoval is on his way out, this time as a trade chip thanks. He has built some legitimate value this season and the Giants are in prime position to sell.
For a contender, he could wind up being a lot like eventual World Series MVP Steve Pearce was for the Red Sox when they acquired him in 2018.
So what are the five best landing spots for the Kung Fu Panda?
Let’s take a look.
