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.”
