Sandoval (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports. This was merely a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Sandoval will miss the rest of the 2016 season after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder earlier in the week.
Sandoval (shoulder) underwent surgery Tuesday and will officially miss the remainder of the 2016 season, Sean McAdam of CSN New England reports. The news confirms what was already expected, as Sandoval is dealing with a significantly torn labrum in his left shoulder. At this point, he's expected to return for the start of the 2017 season, but a lot could change depending on how his recovery and offseason unfold. Travis Shaw figures to continue manning the hot corner for the remainder of the season, while Brock Holt and Josh Rutledge could now see some time at third as well.
Sandoval will likely miss the remainder of the season after undergoing significant left shoulder surgery in a matter of days, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. The details of Sandoval's injury remain unclear, but recent meetings with Dr. James Andrews have reportedly unveiled the need for surgery which requires significant rehabilitation. While still unconfirmed by the team, Sandoval's lengthy absence will allow Brock Holt and Josh Rutledge to battle for primary backup to Travis Shaw at third base.
Sandoval is slated for surgery on his left shoulder, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports. After an exam with Dr. James Andrews on Monday, the Red Sox have decided that surgery is in order on Sandoval's strained left shoulder. It's unclear what exactly the procedure will accomplish, nor the expected recovery timetable, but Sandoval will likely be out of commission for some time.
Sandoval (shoulder) rescheduled his appointment for a second opinion with Dr. James Andrews for Monday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Sandoval headed to Dr. Andrews' office eight days ago for a second opinion, but the examination didn't happen due to extreme soreness in the third baseman's shoulder. Hopefully Sandoval's shoulder is feeling better this time around, as a proper clarification would provide more clarity on what the issue is with his shoulder and how long he'll be out. This situation should become clearer following the examination Monday.
