Sandoval was released by Boston on Wednesday, Jason Mastrodonato of The Boston Herald reports.

The San Francisco Giants plan to sign third baseman Pablo Sandoval once he becomes available, sources tell FanRag Sports.

Sandoval began his career with the Giants and spent seven years there, winning three World Series before signing with the Red Sox.

Sandoval is now a free agent.

Sandoval parlayed that production into a five-year, $95 million deal with the Red Sox, but his abbreviated stint in Beantown proved disastrous. The two-time All-Star hit 14 homers with 59 RBI with 237/.286/.360 slash line in 161 total games for the Red Sox, who still owe him almost $40 million. Over parts of three seasons, he was on the field for just 161 total games. Giants general manager Bobby Evans didn't rule it out Wednesday.

Terms of the deal have not been made public, but Evans indicated on KNBR that the Giants would be willing to resign Sandoval if he would commit to terms the team specified, which could include playing in the Minor Leagues before appearing in a Major League game with the club. The third baseman made his name with Giants - where he hit.294/.346/.465 with 106 home runs and 462 RBI across six seasons.

Sandoval signed with Boston and left San Francisco shortly after he caught the final out of the 2014 World Series.
