Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters at a press conference Thursday that Pablo Sandoval has dropped 20-22 lbs. since the end of the 2015 season.
Oh, this storyline again. Sandoval was a major disappointment in his first year with Boston, batting just .245 with a .658 OPS and 10 home runs in 126 games. Maybe a fitter physique will help, though off-field and on-field inconsistency has plagued the 29-year-old third baseman throughout his major league career and that is probably going to continue. Sandoval is owed $72.4 million from the Red Sox over the next four seasons. Jan 21 - 3:03 PM

Pablo Sandoval (pneumonia) is officially out for the season.

He won't be traveling with the team to New York this week. This puts an end to Sandoval's worst season as a professional. The 29-year-old hit a sluggish .245 with just 10 homers and 47 RBI. His .658 OPS was over a hundred points below his career average. The Red Sox played their best baseball this season when Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez weren't on the field. Panda will look for a clean slate in 2016.
