Giants bring back Pablo on minor league deal

The San Francisco Giants have brought back Pablo Sandoval on a minor league deal. Sandoval hit .288 last season with 14 home runs (11 batting left handed) and drove in 41 RBIs along with 23 doubles. He appeared in just 108 games for the Giants as he was often injured dealing with elbow issues. He dealt with bone chips in his elbow in August and had inflammation that caused him to have season ending Tommy John surgery.

Sandoval comes back to SF for his 11th season and looks to get playing time but it's a matter of where. Last season he played 45 games at third, 23 at first base and even tossed a scoreless inning in a 12-4 loss against the Reds, he will receive $2 million on the deal.
