Report: Sandoval rejects Giants’ QO
It comes as really no surprise, but Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval has reportedly turned down San Francisco’s qualifying offer that was made official yesterday.
FOXSports.com‘s Ken Rosenthal tweeted the news Tuesday morning, which means Sandoval will hit the free agent market this winter. The Giants will receive a compensatory draft pick in the 2015 Draft if Sandoval signs with another club.
Sandoval is the first of the 12 players who received $15.3 million qualifying offers to turn it down. Most are expected to do so. The deadline to come to that decision is 5 p.m. ET on November 10.
