Pablo Sandoval has had elbow problems for the past two weeks and had a setback Friday while playing in a spring training game, but he’s in the Giants’ lineup for Opening Day against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.

Sandoval is starting at third base and batting third after manager Bruce Bochy said over the weekend that his availability would “go down to the wire.”

Sandoval missed five weeks with a broken hamate bone last season and struggled in the second half after returning, but then had a huge postseason and hit .400 this spring.

    That picture looks like he’s in some pain. Hope he’s ready.

    They tied a doughnut to the rim of his cap. Gets him moving every time…
