Pablo Sandoval is batting second for the Red Sox on Thursday night against the Royals.
It's his first time hitting second since 2012. Sandoval has mostly been a disappointment in his first year with the Red Sox, but he does have three doubles, a homer, and four RBI over his last five games. Maybe this is the start of a strong finish from Kung Fu Panda. Aug 20 - 3:34 PM

Pablo Sandoval's X-rays came back negative.

He's day-to-day with a bruised elbow. Sandoval may have stayed in if the Red Sox hadn't built such a big lead. Brock Holt will be a candidate to start at third base if Sandoval has to sit out Sunday's series finale.

Pablo Sandoval was removed from Saturday's game against the Mariners with a right elbow contusion.

Sandoval blasted a home run off Felix Hernandez earlier in the ballgame, then was drilled in the elbow his next time to the dish. The fact that the Red Sox had a massive lead early on probably contributed to the early departure as well.

Pablo Sandoval is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a left forearm contusion.

Pablo Sandoval was removed from Thursday's game against the White Sox after being hit in the wrist/forearm area by a Chris Sale pitch.

Sandoval actually struck out swinging at the pitch, literally adding insult to injury. He'll presumably head for X-rays to rule out any fractures. The Red Sox should have an update on his status shortly.
Jul 30 - 9:17 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell acknowledged Wednesday that Pablo Sandoval's weight is an issue.

It's the first time Farrell has addressed this topic since spring training, when he was in full support of Boston's new acquisition. The burly third baseman got thrown out at home on a ball he should have scored on Wednesday night against the White Sox and had to be lifted from the game two innings later due to dehydration. "There are ongoing efforts to support that, to try to get him in the best shape possible," said Farrell. "That's something Pablo has dealt with his entire career. It continues to be addressed."
