After being on the mend with a broken right hand, Pablo Sandoval is slated to take the field Friday and Saturday for the San Jose Giants as part of his rehabilitation assignment.

Sandoval, a third baseman for the San Francisco Giants, played for the single-A affiliate here in San Jose in 2007 and 2008 before moving up to the majors.

First pitch for Friday’s game against Visalia is 7pm at Municipal Stadium. Saturday’s game starts at 6pm.

Sandoval was batting .313 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 24 games with San Francisco this season.
