Published

on

The San Francisco Giants have announced that they have exercised club options on left hander Madison Bumgarner and veteran third baseman Pablo Sandoval.

Bumgarner has declined a bit over the past 2 seasons, but at a $12 million rate, he is an affordable investment for the Giants, and could return to form next season.

Sandoval will now have to earn a roster spot in training camp as he is recovering from a season-ending injury. Despite his apparent struggled lately, Sandoval was still productive prior to going down with the injury this season posting a .248/.310/.417 slash line.
