Red Sox Bid Farewell To Pablo Sandoval

After the 2014 season ended in a last place finish, the Red Sox invested $95-million over five years in free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval.  Boston also signed free agent slugger Hanley Ramirez to a 4-year/$88-million contract that same off-season.

Today he has been designated for assignment.

Due to issues with his weight, injuries, and poor performance, Sandoval played just 161 games in a Red Sox uniform.  He batted .239 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI.  He was also a disaster at third base defensively.  His weight and physical problems made him one of the worst defensive third basemen in baseball over the last few seasons.
