CBS's Jon Heyman thinks Pablo Sandoval could sign with a team as early as Monday. The Giants, Red Sox and Padres have all allegedly made offers in 5-year, $90-100 Million range.

While the Padres threw a decent offer Sandoval's way, it seems that Boston or San Francisco are more likely landing spots for the portly third baseman. Boston is certainly an enticing place as the Sox have just locked down Hanley Ramirez and are putting together a strong squad that would entice a number of free agents. But Sandoval may opt to stay put in the Bay Area as his mother and daughter are close by and family has always been an important thing for him. Not to mention, what are the Giants going to do with all those ridiculous panda hats they sell? Expect Sandoval to make a decision sooner than later as the offers from Boston and San Francisco are probably rhe best he's going to see.

Carlos Triunfel signed a minor league deal with the Giants.

He was part of the Dodgers farm system last season, but only played a handful of major leagues games. Triunfel is known for his glove and not his bat, which makes him disposable in dynasty leagues.

P Braulio Lara, OF Javier Herrera and C Guillermo Quiroz signed minor league deals with the Giants.

All three players are minor league players that will have a hard time making the big league squad. Avoid all of them in dynasty drafts.

Pablo Sandoval received a five-year contract offer from the Boston Red Sox on Friday, according to The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo.

The offer is apparently $95 million for five years which is slightly above what Sandoval turned down from the Giants at the start of the 2014 season. He's got a few other teams interested and it's likely that the Giants will tender an offer as well. Sandoval to the Red Sox has long been speculated, so there's always the chance that he simply takes this offer and runs. Stay tuned.

The San Francisco Giants added Cody Hall, Ray Black, Derek Law and Joan Gregorio to their 40-man roster.

Thus the Giants are able to avoid exposing any of these players to the Rule 5 draft. Even so, they are all at least a year away from making significant fantasy contributions.

San Francisco Giants vice president and assistant GM Bobby Evans said free agent reliever Sergio Romo is "clearly an interest of ours."

Romo saved 75 games over the last three seasons with the Giants, though he lost the closing job to Santiago Casilla in the second half last season. Romo could have value as a late-round closer candidate if he winds up in the right situation. If he returns to the Giants he will only have value in holds leagues or as a Casilla handcuff. Romo was hurt by a career-high HR/FB rate and career-low LOB%; he should be much better in 2015 regardless of the roll.

Giants have designated right-hander J.C. Gutierrez for assignment.

The Giants are finalizing their 40-man roster in lieu of next month's Rule 5 Draft. Gutierrez didn't make the cut, but he should be able to find a minor league deal before next spring.

Pablo Sandoval reportedly left Boston without a contract offer from the Red Sox, though he is expecting one.

All signs seem to point to Sandoval winding up in Boston, though there is still plenty of time for a dark horse to emerge. Nearly any ballpark would be better for Sandoval's fantasy value than AT&T Park, though Fenway would probably be one of the best.

The Red Sox have confirmed that they are having constructive talks with Pablo Sandoval's agent regarding a contract.

While there are certainly other teams who are in need of help at third base, the Red Sox are one of the few who would be willing to pony up the amount of money the over-stuffed playoff hero is seeking. Reports confirm that Sandoval actually turned down a five-year, $90 million deal prior to the start of the 2014 season and while his full-season's stats -- .279-16-73 -- weren't exactly worth that kind of money, his .335 playoff average and overall post-season performance are what is freshest in everyone's mind. Monitor the negotiations as Boston is probably the landing spot for the Kung Fu Panda should the Giants not open the vault for him.

Pablo Sandoval rejected a qualifying offer from the San Francisco Giants worth $15.3 million.

Sandoval is coming off another productive season, and it will help that he also had a very good postseason. He is going to get some serious interest in both leagues, with the Red Sox reportedly first up on his tour this offseason.
