    Red Sox activated 3B Pablo Sandoval from the 10-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.
    Sandoval batted just .237/.286/.360 in three seasons with Boston after signing a five-year, $95 million contract, and he played just 35 games the last two years due to injury. He's still owed roughly $50 million through 2019 when you include his 2020 buyout, but the Red Sox are willing to eat that money in order to turn the page. Boston will roll with Tzu-Wei Lin and Deven Marrero at third base for now, but they'll undoubtedly be in the market for a third baseman ahead of the trade deadline. Sandoval will catch on somewhere, but he would certainly appear to be a longshot to be a productive major leaguer again. He'll turn 31 next month.

    I think if he was blowing some coke he would be a lot thinner than he is.

    It's not meth. I actually know a couple strippers through a friend that he used to party with all the time here in the Bay Area. They were not bashful about the details.

    I wish I had a cool $50 million to write off.

    I guess it means just that much more for a ticket, that many more annoying commercials on NESN, that much more for a hot dog and a beer.

    The fans always pay.

    Sucks to eat that, but I'm happy as hell. I couldn't stand to see his face associated with us anymore.......Glad we're moving on.

    Agreed. The man's regular season stats were never worthy of that contract.

    Gotta be one of (if not) the worst signings ever in baseball. This was an absolute nightmare and I knew it was a bad idea from the start.......flat out, dude sucks.

    The Sox’ decision to designate Sandoval for assignment on Friday ultimately comes as little surprise. According to Fangraphs, he was worse than a replacement-level player this year – a notion borne out by the relative value provided by Sandoval in contrast to Marrero and Lin. Indeed, over the course of his three seasons, Fangraphs pegged him as having a - 2.6 WAR , the seventh-worst mark by any player with at least 500 plate appearances in franchise history.

    Based on that number, Sandoval cost the Red Sox one win for every $36.9 million they spent on him. That negative return on investment makes his deal one of the worst in not just Red Sox but baseball history.
