San Francisco third baseman and 2011 All-Star selection Pablo Sandoval is being investigated by the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department over possible sexual assault charges, according to Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area.

Sources told Baggarly’s employer that the alleged incident took place early in the morning this past Friday at the Seascape Beach Resort. However, those same sources explained that Sandoval was not a registered guest at the resort during that time.

Sources who talked with CSN Bay Area claim that the woman in question reported to the authorities that she was too intoxicated to give consent.

The investigation is still on going, and it’s important to note that Sandoval has not been charged by the police according to sources cited by CSN Bay Area.

Sandoval’s attorney, Eric Geffon agreed to an interview with CSN Bay Area, explaining:

On Friday, June 1, Pablo Sandoval voluntarily met with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department related to a consensual, personal relationship of a sexual nature that took place on that day.

Geffon added that his client was fully cooperative with the authorities during the process.

Baggarly attempted to get the Giants‘ opinion regarding the alleged incident but was declined. Vice President Staci Slaughter simply told the reporter:

Given the off-the-field nature of the issue, we refer all comment to his attorney.

Slaughter did comment that Sandoval will play in his Single-A rehab assignment game with the San Jose Giants Saturday night.

The career-long Giant hasn’t played in a major league game since May 2 due to fracturing his hamate bone in his right wrist.

Sandoval had surgery to remove the bone and is starting the final step in his rehab process by working through the San Francisco farm system before making his return to the big leagues.
