Giants | Optimistic on Pablo Sandoval

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is more optimistic that 3B Pablo Sandoval (elbow) will be ready by opening day. Bochy said Sandoval will do "light work" Wednesday, March 27, and might hit off a tee or play catch.

Fantasy Tip: If Sandoval does have to start the year on the DL, the Giants will be able to backdate his DL stint, so he won't miss too much time. The bigger worry here is how Sandoval will perform if he has to deal with pain or irritation in his elbow during the season. It wouldn't be a shock if surgery becomes an option down the road if this thing doesn't improve.
