San Francisco Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval (elbow) returned to the lineup Tuesday, July 8, against the Oakland Athletics.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval (elbow) still cannot straighten his arm, and he has not swung a bat. Manager Bruce Bochy would not rule out using him off the bench Monday, July 7, however.
