SAN FRANCISCO (Bleacher Report) — Pablo Sandoval’s latest injury is weighing heavily on the San Francisco Giants.
The Giants placed the third baseman on the disabled list earlier this week. Sandoval will be out for at least 15 days after aggravating a foot strain.
Many have speculated that Sandoval’s nagging injuries are related to his ongoing weight issues.
Sandoval reportedly showed up to spring training out of shape to the dismay of the organization. He lost weight at the behest of the manager Bruce Bochy during the spring, but he’s drawn the ire of the Giants once again.
The Giants have asked Sandoval to prioritize losing weight while he’s on the disabled list.
