Pablo Sandoval 3B BOS 2 weeks ago

Sandoval went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday night's loss to Baltimore. He had missed Boston's previous game with a mildly sprained left ankle.

The injury didn't cool off Sandoval's bat. The third baseman has 22 hits in his last 50 at-bats with eight extra-base hits and seven RBI over 13 games. That run has fueled a rise in batting average from its season-low .239 to .279.

Sandoval (leg) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.

A sprained left ankle forced Sandoval from Saturday's game, and he was even fitted with a walking boot, but it seems a couple days of rest were sufficient to treat the issue. He is 11-for-34 (.324 average) with two doubles, a triple, and two homers in his career against right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez, Tuesday's starter for Baltimore, but manager John Farrell will bat Sandoval seventh in his return to the lineup.

Sandoval (leg) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Sandoval exited Saturday's game early with an apparent leg injury, and was seen leaving the stadium later in the evening in a walking boot. With a team day off scheduled for Monday, manager John Farrell will use this opportunity to give his regular third baseman an extra day to rest the ailment. Brock Holt will man the hot corner in his stead for the Sunday afternoon contest.

Sandoval is considered day-to-day and left the stadium Saturday night in a walking boot, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Sandoval's leg buckled while attempting a throw to first base. He fought tightness in his quad last week, but this seems to be completely unrelated. Travis Shaw came into the game and will likely see the field in Sandoval has to miss any time.
