San Francisco Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval will stay in Venezuela and work out this offseason instead of working out in Arizona at the team's year-round facilities, which was the original plan. Head trainer Dave Groeschner would have preferred if Sandoval had come back to be under the team's supervision. Sandoval has gained more weight in previous seasons when he's stayed in his native country. Sandoval plans to return to the U.S. in mid-January and spend a month getting ready for spring training.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is sticking with 3B Pablo Sandoval over INF Joaquin Arias, who had four hits Tuesday, Aug. 13. "You know, we've got to get Pablo going," Bochy said of Sandoval, who has one home run since May 22 and a .209 average in 43 games since returning from the DL in late June. Sandoval's last extra-base hit was on July 28.
Fantasy Tip: Sandoval gets himself in trouble when he chases bad pitches, and that's probably partially to blame for his current cold streak. The Giants could choose to rest him some more if he doesn't bounce out of the funk soon. Maybe you should do the same.
