Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval: Winning over fans with hustle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sandoval attempted to bunt his way on base during Saturday's game against the Twins in an effort to beat an infield shift.

Sandoval was thrown out at first base, but he made it close play with his hustle down the line and earned a robust round of applause from the partisan fans at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers (Fla.). Beating infield shifts has been a point of emphasis during training camp and Sandoval took the initiative when an opportunity presented itself. The Red Sox don't want him bunting to beat a shift every time he sees one, but the attempt was viewed positively by manager John Farrell. Sandoval has much to prove entering the third year of a five-year contract that can only be viewed as a terrible signing. He's made a few hustle plays early on during spring training games, suggesting the third baseman is aware of the spotlight on him.

Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval: Positive signs in Thursday's exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval cleanly fielded all three of his chances at third base and stretched a line-drive hit into a double during Thursday's exhibition game against Northeastern University.

Sandoval is motivated to prove himself after a couple of disastrous seasons in Boston, so Thursday's display is very encouraging. He showed up to camp in better condition and Thursday's hustle-double was an extension of the offseason commitment he put into his body. While manager John Farrell is not going to hand him the starting job, Sandoval merely has to beat out utility players Brock Holt and Josh Rutledge. It would take a monumentally horrible spring for him to get beat out for the starting job at third base.

Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval: No WBC for Panda
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sandoval will not participate in the World Baseball Classic for Team Venezuela, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Sandoval had been on Venezuela's provisional roster for the WBC and was hoping to participate in the tournament for a second time, but the Red Sox exercised their right to bar him from playing. The third baseman is coming off shoulder surgery and Boston withheld medical clearance, so Sandoval will remain in spring training, where he can focus on the task of winning the starting third base job. Earlier this week, manager John Farrell said the job won't be handed to Sandoval, who will have competition from Brock Holt and Josh Rutledge.

Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval: Third base job a competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sandoval won't be handed the starting third base job this spring, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports.

Boston manager John Farrell mentioned Brock Holt and Josh Rutledge as players who will compete with Sandoval, but the manager is pleased with Sandoval's attitude entering training camp. The 30-year-old third baseman re-dedicated himself during the past year, which ended early in April due to a shoulder injury. He's in better shape and motivated to win back the job he lost to Travis Shaw in spring training last year. Now with Shaw and prospect Yoan Moncada gone, there's a clear path the job for Sandoval, whose pedigree as a hitter is better than either Holt or Rutledge.

Red Sox's Pablo Sandoval: Early arrival at camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sandoval checked into Boston's training camp in Fort Myers (Fla.) on Thursday well ahead of the Feb. 17 reporting date, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports.

Sandoval had posted images of himself on Instagram during the offseason, showing off what appears to be a slimmer physique. Thursday was the first time reporters got eyes on him in real life, and he appears to be somewhere between 25-30 pounds lighter than last season. He's taken a lot of heat for his weight since signing with Boston in 2015, but if he were producing, nobody would care. Prior to the shoulder injury that cost Sandoval all but three games in 2016, he had a .658 OPS in 2015. That will need to improve if he's going to get a chance to offset the loss of David Ortiz's bat.
