RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Sandoval once was a starting third baseman on a World Series championship team, but to start the 2016 season, he didn't even have a spot in Boston's Opening Day lineup. After a disappointing maiden voyage in Boston, the "Kung Fu Panda" lost his starting gig at the hot corner to Travis Shaw and only received one start over the first week of the season. Things only got worse from there, as a major shoulder strain was discovered in May, forcing him to miss the remainder of the season. Thankfully, the 30-year-old is expected to be fully healthy for spring training, and now his top two competitors at third base are gone: Shaw was traded to the Brewers in December and Yoan Moncada was dealt to the White Sox not long after. Brock Holt is still in the mix for playing time at third, but if Sandoval can get back into shape and return to anywhere near his previous form, he should see plenty of at-bats this season. There are worse ways to use a late-round flier.

2016

When a team, say San Francisco, is winning the World Series, the heavy guy at third base is a quirky element. When a team, say Boston, is in last place and heading nowhere, the heavy guy at third base with a five-year contract gets criticized for his conditioning. Sandovalís first season with Boston was limited to 126 games by a string of injuries, he failed miserably against lefties (.049 as a RHB and .255 as a LHB) and contributed league-worst fielding at third base. He was also benched briefly for going on social media during a game. Sandoval was supposed to be protection in the middle of the order, but hit just .245/.292/.366 with a career-low 47 RBI. If general manager Dave Dombrowski could find a taker, he'd trade Sandoval, but that's unlikely. His defense improved in the second half -- an encouraging sign for 2016 -- and Sandoval should be motivated to prove his first season with the Red Sox was an anomaly.

2015

Postseason heroics plus a new team? Beware the draft-day inflation with this one. Sandoval played in more than 150 games in 2014 for just the first time in the last four seasons, and hit .279/.324/.415. It marked the fourth consecutive season in which his slugging percentage declined, and a big reason for that was his struggles against lefties. Normally not someone with splits issues, Sandoval hit .199/.244/.319 against lefties last season. The move from San Francisco to a more hitter-friendly park in Boston should help, but prospective owners need to remember Sandoval is a relatively large player who has had issues staying healthy. He will have the hype machine behind him after the monster postseason, but do not overlook the risk. Fantasy owners should not overpay for these skills.

2014

Sandoval had a relatively healthy year (141 games) in 2013 considering he missed at least 45 games in both 2011 and 2012. He turned in a fairly useful campaign at a deep position, with 14 homers, 79 RBI, a 115 wRC+, and a .278/.341/.417 line. Weight was an issue for Sandoval, as he entered spring training overweight yet again. Despite the weight issues, he still managed to produce, but that may not be the case down the road. He should be motivated to get into playing shape this upcoming season, considering 2014 will be a contract year for the switch-hitting third baseman. All of Sandoval's peripherals were right in line with his career averages, so it would be safe to assume similar production in 2014 as long as he stays healthy and in shape.

2013

Sandoval dealt with injuries once again in 2012, and his overall season was not as strong because of the decline in his HR/FB rate from 16.0 to 9.5 percent. His overall wOBA was down to .338 due to his drop in power, and not because of his actual OBP that held steady at .342. Sandoval's overall average dropped to .283 because of a 20-point decrease in his BABIP, which was affected by a career-high 15.1 percent infield flyball rate. If Sandoval can keep away from another hamate fracture in 2013, expect 18-21 home runs with a slash line closer to his career rates (.301/.353/.490).

2012

Sandoval showed up last year in shape and about 40 pounds thinner than the previous season, and the hard work paid off, as he finished with a .315/.357/.552 line. He hit 23 homers with 70 RBI over just 426 at-bats while playing in a park that graded as the toughest to hit in baseball. Sandoval's approach at the plate remained the same, as he swung at the greatest percentage of pitches outside the strike zone among all hitters in baseball. He missed about six weeks with a broken hand, but the injury didn't sap his power after he returned. Sandoval later suffered a shoulder injury that limited him, as the switch-hitter wasn't even able to swing right-handed at the end of the season. The injury didn't require offseason surgery, but the key will be what shape he shows up in, as Sandoval regained all the weight he lost over the course of the 2011 season. Sandoval is still just 25 years old and has transformed himself into one of the best defensive third basemen in the league, so he's an elite talent at a position that's typically thin in fantasy leagues.

2011

After hitting .330 with 25 homers and 90 RBI in 2009, Sandoval's numbers dropped precipitously last year, as he hit just .268 with 13 homers and 63 RBI, becoming one of the biggest busts in fantasy baseball. He saw his OPS drop by more than 200 points and ended the year as a bench player on a team that struggled with offense. Weight was a problem, as was his hit rate, as his BABIP fell to .294 after finishing above .350 during each of his first two years in the league. Sandoval swung at a greater percentage of pitches than any hitter in the National League, as plate discipline is his biggest issue. He reportedly had already lost 15 pounds just six weeks into the offseason, and the hope is he'll take that aspect more seriously after losing his starting job. Sandoval is a wild card entering 2011, but he's one season removed from posting a .943 OPS as a 23-year-old, and with no current alternatives on the roster, the Giants will give him every opportunity to regain the starting job at third base. He's a fine buy-low target in fantasy leagues.

2010

With such a low walk rate and the propensity to swing at any pitch within three feet of the strike zone, Sandoval entered 2009 with legitimate concerns of whether he could maintain such a high batting average. After hitting .330 over 572 at-bats, most of those worries have been eased. Sandoval took 28 walks over the seasonís final two months, so while he still swings at too many pitches outside the strike zone, his plate discipline is improving, which is encouraging news going forward. AT&T Park suppresses some of his power, but he still managed 25 homers and 90 RBI as a 23-year-old last season. Sandoval no longer qualifies at catcher in fantasy leagues, but he should qualify at third base and first base in most leagues. While he didn't embarrass himself while learning to play third base last year, he'll likely move to first base after the Giants signed Mark DeRosa. He underwent a rigorous offseason workout program and completely changed his diet, so "Kung Fu Panda" should be primed for a monstrous 2010 campaign.

2009

Sandoval was a pleasant surprise in 2008, hitting .345 in 41 games after getting called up from the minors. He walked just four times over 145 at-bats, so that high batting average is definitely unsustainable moving forward. Still, he's a solid prospect and has been penciled in as either the team's starter at first or third base next season. Since he should qualify at catcher in most fantasy leagues, Sandoval is an intriguing option later in drafts.

2008

A 21-year-old third baseman, Sandoval posted a line of .287/.312/.476 during 401 at-bats at High-A San Jose last year. He's exhibited some pretty good power potential, but improved plat discipline is needed. He's a long time away from reaching the majors.
