Slimmed-Down Sandoval Finding His Stride At The Plate

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pablo Sandoval spent the offseason rebuilding his body and confidence, and the San Francisco slugger is showing results.

No longer the stressed-out, pressing third baseman he was a year ago for the Giants, Sandoval is nearly 40 pounds lighter and has a spring in his step once again.

And more importantly for the struggling World Series champions, he’s got some serious pop in his bat. Sandoval’s five home runs are his most ever in April and he is hitting .319 nearly a month into his third full big league season.
