Back with the Giants today. As someone on Twitter said, not the first time Sandoval has had to replace a belt.

Ate his way out of MLB by age 30. Sad. Image result for sad emoticon

DFA ... at age 30 :-(

He'll be kept in our league at $3, and I'm just as glad, because it means I don't have to think about what I would pay for him.

Panda back in the lineup yesterday in Fort Myers (false alarm rung by me in the Holt thread).

With a double and single in three at-bats, Sandoval upped his spring training slashers to .370/.382/.685. He hit 8th.

But the interesting point about Sandoval is that he isn't that strong, even when he's at his best, which he hasn't been in five or six years. How long a leash does he have?

And even if he's okay, when do the Sox decide to turn to Devers?

On the other hand, a fairly strong team doesn't need Sandoval to be great, just competent.

Devers has nothing above A+ so far, and Brock Holt, as beloved as he is and should be, isn't a regular full time player.

So, I have Sandoval down for 490 AB, earning $11, and today I think he's worth paying $10 for, but less would be better. But I have to admit, I can see many scenarios where he gets a lot worse, and not many where he gets much better. I'm dropping my bid price a couple bucks.

I was on the Friends with Fantasy Benefits podcast today, talking about third basemen.

My notes about Sandoval were:

He’s lost weight. 5 for 12 so far in spring training, and has played 21
innings, with five throws for assists, which suggests health. I haven’t seen a
report to the contrary.

If his shoulder is healthy and he’s in good enough shape,
he’s a low power contact hitting third baseman with a history of successes and
failures.

I wouldn’t say he’s an exciting guy to buy, it seems
unlikely he’s going be more than a .275 hitter with 10-15 homers in 400-450 at
bats.  Great in only leagues if he’s
$7  or $9.

The bad news was that Sandoval lost the third base job for the Red Sox in spring training, and angered the team because he was so overweight. The good news is that he injured his shoulder early in April, had shoulder to repair a torn labrum in May, lost 20 pounds and was healthy enough to play catch in August. He's going to have to keep the weight off, test the shoulder playing in game conditions, and regain the sure batting stroke that inspired the Red Sox to give him a big five-year contract two years ago. If all that happens playing time issue will disappear.

He's in the best shape of his career.  Do I hear $2?
