2014 Stats (with Giants): 157 games, 68 runs, 26 doubles, 16 home runs, 73 RBI, 0 steals, .279/.324/.415/.739

Entering his first season in a Red Sox uniform, Sandoval will be the Opening Day third baseman. A position that has seen inconsistency over the past few seasons, Sandoval will look to add his steady defense to the position as well as be yet another weapon in the lineup for the Red Sox.

Sandoval is mainly known for his superior play in the playoffs. A three time World Series winner with the San Francisco Giants, Sandoval brings more leadership into a clubhouse that is already starting to mesh well in spring training. Look for Sandoval to most likely bat sixth in the lineup behind Napoli.
