Sandoval doesn't plan to catch in All-Star Game
PITTSBURGH -- With the news that Yadier Molina will not be attending this year's All-Star Game, leaving the National League with just two catchers, Pablo Sandoval might seem like a logical candidate to squat behind the dish if circumstances call for it.

After all, one of the two catchers on the squad is teammate Buster Posey, and Sandoval does have experience catching at the Major League level, having done so as recently as 2009.

But Sandoval lightly brushed aside the possibility Saturday before the Giants played the Pirates.

Sandoval said he's still got the skills, but admitted, "It's tough. It's a tough position."

In addition to Sandoval and Posey, the Giants will be represented by Melky Cabrera and Matt Cain in Kansas City.
