SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval was scratched from Sunday's spring training game with the Colorado Rockies after he complained of discomfort in his right elbow following pre-game warmups.

Sandoval said he felt pain in the elbow while making a throw to second base in a game against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday. He stayed in the game and made a subsequent throw to first, but said he did not feel pain on that throw.

Sandoval seemed to throwing the ball normally in pre-game drills but said his elbow was sore. He also felt the pain swinging left-handed, and added that the pain was worse than the day before.

The third baseman said he would go for tests on the elbow Monday, an off day for the Giants, but did not know if would have an MRI

"I don't think it's something serious," he said. "We'll see what's going on."

Sandoval, the World Series MVP, has been having a hot spring, hitting .435 (10 for 22).
