Pablo Sandoval has made his decision and will take his talents to Boston in 2015. After losing out on their No. 1 offseason priority, the Giants released the following statement:
Pablo Sandoval has been a key member of the Giants since breaking into the Majors with us in 2008. He has been with us through some of the greatest moments in San Francisco Giants history – including all three World Series Championships. We will never forget his World Series MVP performance in 2012 and his numerous contributions to the 2014 Championship. His connection with Giants fans – young and old – is truly special and he will be greatly missed. We wish him nothing but the best in Boston.
We are extremely proud of what our team accomplished in 2014 and we look forward to continuing to invest in and strengthen our team for next season.
Sandoval, 28, hit .294 with 106 home runs over his first seven MLB seasons, all with the Giants.
