SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — San Francisco Giants’ third baseman Pablo Sandoval has had a career with enough twists and turns to make you think he’s been around for 12 years. How is it that he has only been in the league since 2008?
Since 2010, Sandoval’s numbers have rebounded to be sure. His two-year average since then is .301. He has homered 35 times in that span and played a credible third base.
But his weight has not found its way under his control. According to baseball-reference.com, he is listed at 240 pounds. The eye test says that the late season Sandoval was closer to 270 pounds.
In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Sandoval had this to say: “I’ve got this year and next year to change all the things. It’s going to take me a while, but I can do it. I know I can do it.”
