Lean Panda Photo of the Day: This time, he's shirtless

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Less than 24 hours ago, my colleague Mike Axisa passed along the story that Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval -- normally the portly type -- has dropped 42 pounds thus far in the offseason. There was a photo attached, but Sandoval was wearing a shirt with a collar. Might he have been hiding some fat underneath?

Not much.

Here's the Panda Wednesday, via his Instagram account:

Wanna call him fat from your couch again?

Sandoval, 27, hit .278/.341/.417 (119 OPS+) with 27 doubles, 14 homers and 79 RBI last season. The Giants are surely hoping he's closer to 2009 and 2011 form, however.
