Sandoval is dealing with a sore hip that he got adjusted after Monday's two-hit performance against Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Considering that Sandoval was able to play through the hip issue Monday, his availability for Tuesday's game seems likely. The 28-year-old's status will continue to be monitored heading into Tuesday as he'll look to continue his success at the plate against the Diamondbacks.

Sandoval continued his success against Detroit from the 2012 World Series on Friday, going 2-for-5 with a home run and a pair of RBI in the 8-2 win.

Sandoval just seems to step things up anytime he faces the Tigers, accruing a .304 average with five homers and 8 RBI in 46 career at-bats against Detroit. He is having a solid season as a whole, posting a .289/.332/.440 slash line and staying healthy all year. Sandoval is in a contract year, so he will look to finish the season on a strong note heading into next season.

Sandoval is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

It would appear to be the case where manager Bruce Bochy is simply resting Sandoval for a day game after a night game. He didn't leave much of an imprint in the first two games of the series, going 2-for-10 with an RBI and a pair of strikeouts.

Sandoval fell a double short of a cycle Sunday, going 3-for-4 with a single, triple, homer, and three RBI in the win over Milwaukee.

The home run was Sandoval's first since August 6, and his third for the entire month of April. He has never been a big power hitter, so the low home run total shouldn't come as a surprise. He is, however, hitting .336 for the month of August, collecting 18 RBI over that span. The Panda seems to be heating up at the right time for not only the Giants, but also for his fantasy owners.

Sandoval went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a pair of RBI in Thursday's regularly scheduled game the Cubs.

Sandoval has been a consistent option at third base this season, a fantasy position that has seen some turbulence with its top options in 2014. He has already matched his home run total from last year (14), and he has been a lot healthier as well (a likely result of the weight he lost in the offseason). His .304 BABIP is right around his career-average, so Sandoval should continue to produce at this consistent level for the remainder of the year.

Sandoval collected three hits Friday, smacking a double and scoring a run in the loss to the Phillies.

The Giants' offense as whole has gone cold in the month of August, but Sandoval doesn't seem to be affected by the team's slump, hitting .327 with two homers and 10 RBI in just 55 August at-bats. In fact, since his horrid month of April, Sandoval has batted above .300 in every month since. He should continue to be a good source of average, power, and RBI batting in the heart of the Giants' lineup.

Sandoval has been swinging a hot bat lately, going 11-for-31 with eight RBI in his last eight games. He's been heating up in the second half and now owns a solid .281/.329/.436 slash line in 406 at-bat this year.
