Giants’ Portly Pablo Trying Hard, But Still Needs To Reduce Weight
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (CBS Sports) — Pablo Sandoval, World Series hero and bulge battler, seemed to surprise some San Francisco Giants people by making his weight to play in spring games.
But he has another challenge. Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he has a new weigh-in and a new weight to meet this weekend.
“He’s not quite where we wanted,” Bochy said. “He had a weight to get to before playing, and he did that. We have another weight to get to this weekend.”
It might be another upset if Sandoval makes his weight again, but Sandoval has been known to surprise folks, though usually on the baseball field.
Bochy doesn’t reveal Sandoval’s exact weight. But suffice it to say, it’s not within shouting distance of the 242 he’s listed at in the spring guide.
