SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Pablo Sandoval is ready to put all the chatter about his weight to rest.
Last year's World Series MVP insists he is doing his best to get in tip-top shape, and he's certainly showing he has plenty of range at third base.
After spending the spring working on his defense, Kung Fu Panda made several nice plays behind Barry Zito to back a 1-0 win over St. Louis in San Francisco's home opener Friday - including running down a foul popup near the home bullpen.
Sandoval, who hit three home runs in Game 1 of the Giants' four-game World Series sweep against the Tigers last season, had a stomach bug early in spring training and a sore elbow late in the exhibition schedule.
