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.

Sandoval went 1-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Friday's 9-2 win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Friday's homer broke up a dreadful 0-for-39 stretch at the plate for the struggling third baseman. Sandoval is slashing a mediocre .190/.246/.286 in 112 plate appearances since rejoining the Giants. The 31-year-old inexplicably continues to see regular playing time for the last-place club despite rosters expanding at the beginning of the month. San Francisco is trying to fit a square peg into a circle hole, but fantasy owners should not follow suit.

Sandoval is not in the lineup against the Rockies on Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval will retreat to the bench for the series finale while in the midst of an 0-for-35 slump at the plate. In his place, Kelby Tomlinson gets the nod at third, while batting seventh in the order.

Sandoval went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval has been struggling at the plate recently, going hitless in his last 27 plate appearances. The 31-year-old is trying to get his career back on track in San Francisco after seeing a sharp decline in production over the last three seasons. Sandoval is still receiving regular starts at the hot corner, but he will have to improve on his anemic .212/.268/.323 slash line or run the risk of losing playing time now that rosters have expanded.

Sandoval (forearm) is starting at third base and batting sixth during Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval exited Monday's contest early after taking a pitch off his forearm in the eighth inning. The forearm contusion proved to be very minor and the veteran third baseman will re-enter the starting lineup as the Giants take on Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Sandoval (forearm) is fine to play Tuesday after getting hit by a pitch Monday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval was examined after the game and the prognosis is that he is simply dealing with a contusion on his forearm. Assuming he doesn't suffer any additional swelling overnight, the switch-hitting third baseman should be in the starting lineup against Jimmy Nelson and the Brewers on Tuesday. Sandoval is batting .259 (14-for-54) with five extra-base hits since rejoining the Giants on Aug. 5.

Sandoval was forced to leave Monday's game against Milwaukee in the eighth inning after taking a hit-by-pitch off the forearm, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sandoval was replaced in the game by Orlando Calixte. The severity of the injury is unclear, and his status for Tuesday's game will likely depend on how much swelling appears overnight. Consider him day-to-day.
