Sandoval put the Red Sox on the board with a solo home run in the top of the second inning. He added a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. The third baseman has seven home runs on the year along with 26 RBI and an uninspiring .275/.321/.414 batting line.

Pablo Sandoval went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.

Sandoval has long owned Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez, and he continued it with the three-hit effort. His RBI single in the fourth inning gave him 24 RBI on the season. It has been an up-and-down first few months for the free agent signing, but a strong stretch of late has his overall line up to .279/.329/.416.

Pablo Sandoval (ankle) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Orioles.

Sandoval sat out Sunday after leaving Saturday's game with a sprained left ankle, but it's not a long-term concern. He'll hit seventh against Ubaldo Jimenez.

Pablo Sandoval (ankle) said Sunday that he will return to the Red Sox lineup on Tuesday.

Sandoval sat out Sunday's game after leaving Saturday's contest with a sprained left ankle. The off day on Monday should do him good though, and Sandoval fully expects to be ready for Tuesday's series opener against the Orioles.
Jun 21 - 6:15 PM

Pablo Sandoval (ankle) did some jogging prior to Sunday's game.

Sandoval looked pretty gimpy when he departed Saturday's game with a sprained left ankle, but it's looking like merely a day-to-day situation. Brock Holt is at third base Sunday.

Pablo Sandoval (ankle) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Sandoval suffered a sprained left ankle on Saturday. It doesn't appear at this point that he'll need a stint on the disabled list, but the rotund third baseman could miss a few games. Brock Holt is at the hot corner Sunday.
Jun 21 - 11:39 AM

Pablo Sandoval suffered a sprained left ankle Saturday against the Royals.

This could keep Panda out for a bit. Travis Shaw filled in at third base on Saturday and could see everyday at-bats during his absence. Utility man Brock Holt will also be in the mix for playing time at the hot corner. It's bad timing for fantasy owners as Sandoval has raised his batting average 31 points over his last 10 games.

Pablo Sandoval left Saturday's game against the Royals with an apparent leg injury.

Sandoval's leg buckled while making an errant throw to first base in the fifth inning. Travis Shaw replaced him at the hot corner. Pablo was hitless in three at-bats. His .934 fielding percentage is second-worst among AL third basemen.

Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-4 with a run scored in his return to the lineup Friday against the Royals.

Sandoval was benched Thursday after violating the Red Sox's social media policy by using Instagram during Wednesday's game. On the strength of six straight two-hit games, the 28-year-old is now batting .274/.326/.416 on the year. He was hitting .239 as recently as June 9.

Pablo Sandoval is being benched Thursday for violating the Red Sox's social media policy.

Sandoval was "liking" provocative photos of a woman on Instagram during Wednesday's loss to the Braves. He acknowledged to reporters Thursday that he grabbed his phone before taking a between-innings bathroom break. "I let my teammates down," said Sandoval. "It ain't going to happen again. I'll take the punishment." Travis Shaw is starting at third base for the Red Sox in Thursday's series finale with Atlanta.
Jun 18 - 3:55 PM

Pablo Sandoval is out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday night against the Braves.

Travis Shaw is starting at third base against Atlanta right-hander Shelby Miller. Sandoval had to make an early exit from a game last weekend due to a tight quad, but it's not clear if this absence is injury-related.

Pablo Sandoval (quad) went 2-for-4 with a triple in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Jun 15 - 8:28 AM

Pablo Sandoval was forced to leave Saturday's game against the Blue Jays due to tightness in his right quadriceps.

He had himself quite an afternoon before departing, going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI. It's unclear if it's the type of injury that can be managed day-to-day or if he'll require a trip to the disabled list. While he has picked it up offensively in recent days, he's still hitting a disappointing .251/.310/.377 with 23 RBI on the season.
Jun 13 - 3:47 PM

Pablo Sandoval slugged a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Blue Jays.

It was his sixth home run of the season and his first since way back on May 16. Sandoval finished the day 1-for-5 and owns a .245/.305/.367 batting line on the year. Consistent with the team on the whole, he has been a major disappointment.
