Watch Giants’ Pablo Sandoval pitch from mound in spring training practice

Giants fans, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for all winter long.

No, it is not Bryce Harper in an orange and black uniform.

But it is something just as good: Pablo Sandoval on the mound (ok maybe not quite as good, but still).

Pablo Sandoval plays role of Giants’ director of recruiting in offseason

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — On the surface, it appears that the Giants are getting a bunch of old Padres together. Drew Pomeranz. Rene Rivera. Yangervis Solarte. Cameron Maybin.

Put perhaps the real link among most the free agent additions is a player who has years of experience facing the Padres.

Solarte, who checked into camp Sunday, said he spent the offseason working out with Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval at the Bommarito gym in Miami. Parra and Rivera also worked out there, along with Dereck Rodriguez, Sandoval’s prized recruit last offseason.

Mind you, he probably should start thinking about career changes, and he certainly has the build of someone in HR….

Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, more Giants will have different look at plate

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—After 10 days of watching him take batting practice and do catching drills, the Giants fully expect Buster Posey to be in the lineup on March 28 in San Diego. When he digs into the box, you’ll see a different look from Posey, now in his 11th big league season.

Posey is one of a dozen Giants wearing a batting helmet with a flap this spring. Last year, the Giants had just one player on their active roster—backup catcher Aramis Garcia—with a flap protecting his jaw. Posey said he plans to use the new helmet during the 2019 season.

“I thought about changing last year but I didn’t want to do it during the season,” he said. “It’s just about getting more protection.”

So, how long before they switch to motorcycle helmets?

As expected, Giants exercise options on Madison Bumgarner, Pablo Sandoval

In moves that were expected, the Giants on Monday exercised their 2019 contract options on pitcher Madison Bumgarner and infielder Pablo Sandoval.

Bumgarner will earn at least $12 million in the final year of the long-term deal he signed in 2012. That is the listed salary, but it likely has grown some through escalators based on performance milestones.

The Giants again will pay Sandoval the major-league minimum, around $545,000, in the final year of the five-year deal he signed with Boston after the 2014 season. The Red Sox will pay the rest of his $18.6 million salary.

A collection of various baseball briefs- quite a bit here to discuss if anyone has the interest…
