    Sandoval returning to Giants on minor league deal as he attempts to make a comeback

    Pablo Sandoval is returning to the San Francisco Giants for a third stint with the club, this time on a minor league contract that includes an invitation to major league camp. The 37-year-old Sandoval — a fan favorite nicknamed Kung Fu Panda who earned 2012 World Series MVP honors — will be attempting to get back to the big leagues for the first time since 2021, when he batted .178 with a .302 on-base percentage, four homers and 11 RBIs in 69 games with the Atlanta Braves. “We had to sign Pablo because the workout videos he was sending me were taking up all the space on my phone,” Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi said.
