Pablo Sandoval would be a hard casualty for the San Francisco Giants after it became known that the Venezuelan infileder would need Tommy John surgery, according to ESPN's Jon Heyman.
The expert explained that for many reasons the loss of Sandoval would be a strong blow at different levels, this because 2019 meant the season where he returned to his best level.
Tommy John surgery looks like a real possibility for Pablo Sandoval. This is unfortunate on many levels. 1) he surely wanted to finish out his great comeback year 2) help the Giants contend and 3) play in Bochy’s final weeks managing, plus 4) he’s a free agent after year.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 24, 2019
In the same way that helped the Giants to be more competitive and the strongest thing is that it will reach the injured free agency.
Sandoval, 33, records an average of .269 with 14 home runs and 41 RBIs in 107 RBIs.
