Cherington: You are going to notice Sandoval when he is on the field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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

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

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

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.
