Sandoval's team option was picked up by the Giants on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

After returning to San Francisco during the second half of the 2017 season, Sandoval hit a bleak .225/.263/.367 over 47 games. With Sandoval's performance leaving much to be desired, a reserve role seems likely for the 31-year-old.

Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a walkoff home run in Sunday's win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval's struggles in Boston are well-documented -- and while it wasn't all roses since returning to San Francisco, he wrapped up the 2017 campaign with an impressive 11-game stretch (.385/.390/.744 with three homers and 12 RBI). It is unclear whether the 31-year-old's late push was enough to earn a starting job with the Giants (or another club) in 2018.

Sandoval batted third and went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a pair of RBI in Wednesday's loss to Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Hunter Pence and Buster Posey got the day off, so Sandoval was asked to carry the offense Wednesday. He was up to the task, but it was all for naught after the bullpen squandered another late-inning lead. Despite the Giants' ongoing woes, the corner infielder has been trending in the right direction over his last eight games, batting .407 (11-for-27) with six extra-base hits and nine RBI over that span. Sandoval appears primed to continue his hot streak this weekend, with three right-handed pitchers slated to toe the rubber for the Padres in a series between the NL West basement dwellers.

Sandoval is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval owns a woeful .362 OPS against lefties this season, so it should not come as a surprise that he is sitting out Tuesday against one of the league's top left-handers in Robbie Ray. Orlando Calixte will man the hot corner in Sandoval's place.

Sandoval is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval has been heating up lately, going 8-for-15 (.533) with four extra-base hits and five RBI over his previous four starts, but he'll give way to Ryder Jones at first base against lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Don't look now, but Sandoval appears to be heating up at the plate, going 7-for-11 with three extra-base hits over his last three contests. His recent hot streak comes on the heels of an atrocious 36-game stretch where he slashed .174/.223/.256. That said, fantasy owners should have recency bias when evaluating players this late in the season, and Sandoval's production should warrant consideration.

Sandoval went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and three RBI in Sunday's 7-2 win over the DIamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The oft-maligned infielder led the Giants to victory in this one, upping his RBI total to 23 in 223 at-bats this year. Sandoval is hitting just .197 this year and doesn't figure to provide much fantasy value in the season's final few weeks.

Sandoval is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval is 4-for-45 (.089) with a .214 OPS against left-handers this year, so it's pretty clear why he is being held out Friday against Diamondbacks southpaw Robbie Ray. Kelby Tomlinson will man the hot corner for the Giants on Friday night.

Sandoval will see the majority of his playing time at first base moving forward, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval is hitting just .183/.234/.270 in 34 games with the Giants this season, so San Francisco is set to give Ryder Jones the majority of starts at third base down the stretch. The 31-year-old is expected to cover first base with Buster Posey the rest of the way, though it's unclear how much he'll play at this point.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval broke out of his lengthy slump on Friday but is still just 2-for-27 at the plate this month. He'll get the night off with Orlando Calixte taking over at third base.
