Latest Update Sandoval said he wants to play the rest of his career for the San Francisco Giants Fri Oct, 31, 08:54 PM
Mixes a sweet swing (from both sides of the plate) with superb focus, some power and clutch ability. Is good defensively at third but can also play first base, if required.
Flaws: : Has to keep his weight in check at all times, since it's a problem for him. Also he doesn't have a natural home-run swing. Despite good hustle, he's not effective on the basepaths.
Sandoval has made it clear that he only wants to play for the Giants' organization. Sandoval is a career .294 hitter and the Giants should keep him as their regular third baseman.Analyst: Colby Conway
Sandoval was a beast the entire postseason. After a rough start to the 2014 campaign, he ended the year with a more than respectable .279 average along with 16 home runs and a 73 RBIs. Panda will be a great value pick in 2015 drafts.Analyst: Colby Conway
Sandoval continues to rake in the postseason as he is now 22-for-65 (.338 BA) with six extra-base hits and five RBI this postseason. Since the start of the World Series, Sandoval has now his safely in four of the first five games, which is a stretch that includes three multi-hit games. Expect Sandoval to be ready to keep up his hot-hitting when the Giants try to seal there third World Series Championship since 2010.Analyst: Matthew Beck
While Panda might not be hitting for big power, he's certainly doing his part to help the Giants offense push through this post-season. He's 6-for-18 (.333) in the World Series to put him at 2-for-61 (.328) with five RBI and eight runs scored. A boost in power could certainly be the difference the Giants need to win another championship and would probably help Sandoval in his quest for big bucks on the free agent market this offseason.Analyst: Howard Bender
