Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval not sorry about slide that lead to beaning


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(1:33 am ET) Orioles starter Ubaldo Jimenez was ejected Friday for hitting Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval with a pitch as suspected payback for a hard slide by Sandoval earlier in the game, according to BostonHerald.com.

"It’s the game ... I do clean slides," Sandoval said. "I slide through the base. There’s nothing wrong with that.”

First baseman Mike Napoli added that Sandoval’s slide was in line with the way the Red Sox like to play.

Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (foot) back in lineup Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval returned to the starting lineup Friday against the Orioles after missing one start with a foot injury.

Sandoval returns in time to face Orioles starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez. Sandoval is batting .324 (11 for 34) with one triple, two doubles, two home runs and five RBI in his career against the right-hander. He also has one walk and 10 strikeouts.

The Red Sox are favored (-125) in Friday's game.


Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval struggling with righty swing


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is just 0 for 12 with five strikeouts from the right side of the plate this season, and manager John Farrell called his right-handed swing "a work in progress," the Boston Herald reports.

"Granted, he’s an aggressive hitter in general," Farrell said after calling him "a little overaggressive" from his weaker side, "but against a left-hander, you can see the body movement a little bit more forward toward the pitcher when compared to a right-hander. So, he’s probably trying to go out and get some pitches rather than letting the ball travel deeper in the zone."

The struggles from the right side are nothing new for Sandoval, who hit .199/.244/.319 against left-handed pitchers last season while batting as a right-hander. The switch-hitter is 11 for 24 against righties this season but has yet to pick up an extra-base hit.


Red Sox's Xander Bogaerts returns, Pablo Sandoval out Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts made his return to the starting lineup Wednesday against the Nationals after sitting out Tuesday due to a knee injury. Unfortunately, Pablo Sandoval was absent from the lineup after leaving Tuesday's game with a left foot contusion.

Brock Holt, who started in Bogaerts' absence Tuesday, moved over to third base to start for Sandoval on Wednesday. Although, manager John Farrell said Sandoval could play if needed, but felt Wednesday was a good time to give him a day off.

The Red Sox are considered favorites (-125) for Wednesday's game.

Sandoval remained in the game until the top of the sixth, when he was replaced by Shane Victorino. Hanley Ramirez took his spot at third base. Sandoval was diagnosed with a bruised left foot after departing. Manager John Farrell told reporters that a scan on his left foot showed no structural damages, per WEEI.com.

He is hitting .306 on the year. His status remains uncertain for Wednesday's game against the Nationals.


Pablo Sandoval's first nine hits with Red Sox are all singles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval has hit safely in four of six games heading into Monday's home opener against the Nationals. 

Sandoval is batting .300 (9 for 30) with four runs, three RBI and two walks. While Sandoval is batting .300, he doesn't have an extra-base hit and has at least one strikeout in every game this season. He has nine total.


Red Sox impressed with Pablo Sandoval this spring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell has been impressed with third baseman Pablo Sandoval this spring, ESPN.com reports.

"I think it’s just a general respect he has for all of us that work in the game," Farrell said. "I’m assuming that would have been the case in San Francisco. He’s eager to help but he doesn’t want to mix message or go against maybe a teaching technique or approach of (Coach Brian Butterfield) or ... from a team fundamental standpoint of cuts and relays. ... And more than anything we appreciate his willingness to help others."

Sandoval emphasized Tuesday that he's "happy to be in Boston."


Cherington: You are going to notice Sandoval when he is on the field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) A photo surfaced Tuesday of Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval that showed the always portly infielder in an unflattering light.

While Tuesday's photo made its way around the internet, Sandoval has dealt with weight issues throughout his career and the Red Sox don't seem too worried about Sandoval's physique.

"Pablo is always going to look like Pablo, you know?" general manager Ben Cherington said a few weeks ago when asked about Sandoval's conditioning, per the Boston Herald. "You're going to notice him when he walks on the field. I don't think that's ever going to change. But there are no concerns on our end at this point as to whether he's going to be where he needs to be on spring training and on opening day."


Red Sox's Sandoval spent offseason working to improve vs. LHPs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval told reporters Tuesday he focused exclusively on hitting from the right side this offseason, per WEEI.com.

“I just started hitting left-handed last week,” the switch-hitter said. “I think it will be a good challenge for me.”

Sandoval struggled against left-handed pitchers in 2014, batting .199. Although, it hasn't been a career trend since he has a .270 average against southpaws over seven MLB seasons. However, he has just a .391 slugging percentage against lefties as opposed to .493 against right-handers.


Sandoval on decision to leave Giants: 'I didn't sleep for three days'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Before signing a five-year deal with the Red Sox in November, Pablo Sandoval was one of the most coveted free-agent third basemen and had many teams hoping to sign him. One of those teams was the Giants, who Sandoval had played for during his first seven years in the majors.

Sandoval told MLB Network Radio on Tuesday that leaving the Giants was one of the toughest decisions of his life and led to a few sleepless nights before deciding to take the Red Sox offer.

"I didn't sleep for three days," he said.

Sandoval added he didn't let the Giants make a final offer because he wanted to go to a new team and wanted a new challenge. He even admitted he "left more money on the table."

Sandoval said having the DH in the AL had nothing to do with his decision to sign with Boston.

"I want to play third base," he said. "I'll play first base some, but I don't want to DH."


Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval to hit back-to-back for Red Sox


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell said he'll likely hit Hanley Ramirez fourth and Pablo Sandoval fifth this season, according to WEEI.

Farrell revealed a large chunk of his batting order. Dustin Pedroia will hit second, David Ortiz will hit third and Mike Napoli will slot in the six-spot behind Ramirez and Sandoval. Ramirez hitting behind Ortiz gives the club the ability to go lefty-righty-lefty when a right-hander is on the mound. 

Ramirez hit .283/.369/.448 over 449 at-bats last season. Sandoval hit .279/.324/.415 in 588 at-bats.
