Giants Release Pablo Sandoval

San Francisco Giants

The San Franciso Giants have requested release waivers on veteran infielder and fan favorite Pablo Sandoval.

It marks the second time this year that the Giants have released a fan favorite player, as they released outfielder Hunter Pence back in August after designating him for assignment.

Sandoval, 34, was hitting .220. with one homerun and 6 RBIs this season for the Giants, his second stint with the team.

Sandoval took to Instagram to say goodbye to Giants fans stating: “Thank you San Francisco Giants, My Teammates, Coaches, and the best fans in the world. You’ve been everything I could have dreamed of and more… It’s been an honor and privilege to play for you. My heart will forever be in San Francisco.”
