Pablo Sandoval Newsbeat
Thursday, May 05, 2016
Dollars to donuts Pablo will have a lot of dollars and eat a lot of donuts over the next year.
“I’m not going to give specific weights, but he has already dropped weight during the season once he’s been under our care on a daily basis,” Dombrowski said Tuesday, via WEEI.com. “I think he’s committed to doing that, and we’re committed to doing that. We’ll have a very thorough program to address a lot of different issues between now and the next spring training.”

Maybe the Red Sox need the Orioles’ doctors to examine future free agents.
Just when Sandoval will return is up in the air, as the procedure is reconstructive. The Red Sox didn’t insure Sandoval’s shoulder when he signed prior to the 2015 season, as there was no physical need to do so. Since that time, though, his shoulder has obviously suffered and degraded, and for all we know it could have been part of his problem a year ago and this spring.

Did the Red Sox research him at all before signing him?
“I care about him greatly,” said Banning, who lost touch with Sandoval after the 2011-12 offseason. “But it’s a tough love. He needs to be smart enough to say there’s a problem. It’s like the alcoholic that won’t admit he’s an alcoholic: well, you can’t address that you’re an alcoholic if you don’t ever admit there’s a problem. He’s got to address that.
“He’s proven to me and shown consistently that he’s got to have somebody like me holding his hand doing that. And it’s not an exercise thing, it’s an eating thing. Obviously exercise is an important factor in it, a very important factor, but eating is going to be the component that needs to be managed and monitored. We had a chef on staff that cooked all his meals.”

The Red Sox don’t have many options. Right now, Shaw is a better player than Sandoval was before he went off the rails. So, even if Sandoval finds workout religion, how does the team find playing time to rebuild his value enough to get another team to take on even a small portion of his contract?

Pablo can either whine about it or work though it. We’ll see how he responds.
Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters that Travis Shaw will be the Opening Day starting third baseman and that defense was the deciding factor.
Pablo Sandoval will begin the year on the bench as a backup despite being in the second year of a five-year, $95-million contract.
Sandoval has made four errors in 26 total chances during spring training. Shaw has gone errorless in 49 total chances. Sandoval told reporters he wasn’t surprised:

Farrell also went out of his way to say that it’s too early to call Shaw a corner utility player, meaning he’s still in the running for that job at the hot corner. A job that, to this point, was assumed to be Sandoval’s.
Now, though, it sounds like it’s Sandoval’s to lose, which is a different thing entirely.
”(Yesterday) was a good showing for [Sandoval],” Farrell said. “He swung the bat well. There is no denying his work, the amount of work he’s putting in, the intensity in which that work is being carried about. And as he’s aware, the work has to translate to performance, for any and all of us.
“He understands this about putting the best team on the field from Day 1. And games in April are equally important to every other time of the year and it’s our job to get out of the gate with the best team on the field.”
That’s Farrell outright saying that Sandoval knows that, should he not be the starting third baseman on Opening Day, it’s because the Sox are a better team at that moment with Shaw there instead.

This is a little premature.

If Pablo and Hanley hit, nobody will give a damn what shape they are in September.

Said Farrell: “I can’t tell you if he got on the scale or not. I can tell you that visiting him in January, it looked like he was in better condition. I will say when we met with every player at the end of last season, each player was given a specific plan, a workout routine.”
