Pablo Sandoval has hit the free agent market and apparently the 28-year-old is looking for a six-year deal.
Sandoval’s agent told the San Francisco Chronicle that his agent was worthy of a long-term deal.
“Pablo is 28,” Gustavo Vasquez said. “He is still young. Maybe if he was 30 or 31 we could talk about four or five years. But he’s 28. He deserves more than that.”
Vasquez went on to tell the Chronicle that his client is more concerned with years than dollars so perhaps a longer term deal with a lower average annual salary could get done. Sandoval is believed to be seeking $90-100 million.
A member of the San Francisco Giants, Sandoval has been a part of three World Series winners.
Coming off a season in which he hit .279/.324/.415 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI in 157 games the player affectionately known as Kung Fu Panda needs to show that his conditioning concerns are gone.
