Analysis: FanRag Sports said Sandoval would "love" to return to San Francisco, and added that the Giants have kicked around the possibility. Some Giants officials have spoken off-the-record about the possibility of Sandoval returning, according to CBSSports.com. The Red Sox will end up paying Sandoval $95 million for batting .237 with 14 home runs and 62 RBIs in 161 games over less than three full seasons of his five-year contract.

Analysis: The Red Sox are cutting Sandoval loose despite still owing him nearly $50 million on a contract that runs through 2019. The former World Series MVP played in just three games last season before undergoing shoulder surgery and was hitting .212 with four home runs in 32 games this year prior to again landing on the DL with an inner ear infection. Expect Boston to be very active at the trade deadline in search of an upgrade at third base.

Analysis: Sandoval won't be missed my many fantasy owners seeing as he's gone 5 for 34 with three walks and one RBI in 14 contests since a three-hit game in his first action off the DL for a sprained right knee on May 31. He has a .147/.216/.265 slash line in June.

Analysis: Panda is 3 for 22 without an RBI in his last 10 games.

Analysis: Sandoval didn't start for a third straight day due to his defensive liabilities but entered as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning and committed an error at third base in the ninth. Just 3 for 25 in June, the high-priced veteran is essentially useless from a fantasy standpoint right now.

Analysis: After collecting three hits and an RBI in his first game back from the DL, Sandoval is 2 for 19 with six strikeouts in six games since. The disappointing third baseman is also 4 for 27 this season at Fenway Park, where the Red Sox will play their next five games.

Sandoval scored once. He ended the game with a .246 batting average.
Analysis: This was Sandoval's first game since April 23 due to a sprained right knee. It was an encouraging sign for the Red Sox, who could use some help at the plate with Dustin Pedroia on the DL due to a sprained left wrist.

Analysis: It's been a slow start for Sandoval after last year's disaster of a season. He's now hitting .143 and that was his first homer.
|Apr. 13 9:50 AM PT10:50 AM MT11:50 AM CT12:50 PM ET12:50 ET16:50 GMT0:50 9:50 AM MST11:50 AM EST12:20 PM VEN20:50 UAE11:50 AM CT-The struggling Sandoval connected for a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to Baltimore.
Analysis: Sandoval has now gone deep twice in his first 30 at-bats this season, but has just two other hits and has struck out nine times. Though the Panda's days as a fantasy factor may not yet be over, he hasn't been the most trustworthy option during his mostly disappointing tenure in Boston.
