Sandoval designated for assignment

Sandoval designated for assignment

Sandoval hit.245 with 10 homers in his first year with the Red Sox, posting career lows in almost every offensive category.

On Friday, the Red Sox essentially acknowledged they had lost the bet, and it came with a staggering cost.

The team announced on Friday that the 30-year-old third baseman has been designated for assignment.

He appeared in only three games a season ago after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery. In total, he hit 14 homers and drive in 59 runs for the club and, technically, collected more hits (136) than strikeouts (101). In fact, it's almost unprecedented.




Sandoval was on the DL with an inner ear infection.

At this point, the Red Sox can place Sandoval on waivers, trade him, release him or outright him to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Sandoval, hitting just.212 in 32 games this season, has battled weight issues and injuries during his rocky three seasons in Boston.

The Giants have had a revolving door at third base this season, but it's been more due to injury than lack of viable options. It would take a slump from Hwang and a trade of Nunez for Sandoval to make much sense, because in a season like this San Francisco would be better served to give younger players at bats. It's sure to cost a lot less than $95 million.
