MLB rumors: Heavy trade interest in San Francisco Giants' Pablo Sandoval

Teams are calling, but the San Francisco Giants aren’t listening.

That’s the word from both Peter Gammons and Hank Schulman in regards to San Francisco Giants third baseman, Pablo Sandoval.

Gammons reported earlier today that teams are showing heavy interest in Sandoval, though, the Giants aren’t exactly open to moving him – a sentiment that Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle echoed:

Hall of Famer writer Peter Gammons, now with MLB Network, says the Giants are getting a lot of calls on Pablo Sandoval. In one sense, it would behoove the Giants to listen because his in the final year of his contract and he has had an injury history. But Peter has heard what I heard: The Giants are not inclined to trade him because they have no real alternatives at third base.

In addition to the lack of infield alternatives, the Giants would be trading a fan favorite who has put up numbers when healthy. Of course, staying healthy has been the problem for Sandoval who not only has suffered some freak injuries, but has continually upset management with his conditioning issues.

If Sandoval continues to frustrate the front office, it’s possible the team may opt to move him in the future but for now that doesn’t appear to be the case.
