Why Pablo Sandoval Has been Taken off The Red Sox Roster:
The Panda is officially leaving Boston. He told ESPN’s Marly Rivera:
“I thank the Boston Red Sox for the opportunity and I remain positive that with the love and support of my family I will continue on with my career.”
Currently, Sandoval is in Miami. There he will remain training and working out, preparing for the next step in his career.
LatinoAthlete.com previously reported that Pablo Sandoval had been fighting with weight for most of his career. Sandoval conditioned hard for the 2017 season, and The Red Sox noticed!
Well it appears that all his hard work wasn’t enough to stay playing for the Boston Red Sox. Boston trimmed the fat based on Pablo’s poor performance, multiple injuries and frustration by the team over his subpar conditioning.
