Panda Hitting Over .300 Against LHP Since Switch

(Boston Herald Photo By Christopher Evans)Since giving up his switch-hitting days, Pablo Sandoval has actually done pretty well hitting left-handed pitching. Thanks to an analysis by Ryan P. Morrison of Baseball Prospectus, the Panda is hitting .313 against left-handed pitching since the "switch"—albeit in just 32 plate appearances. Still, he's making good contact—even at balls significantly above his head. As Morrison points out, from an offensive perspective, Sandoval is on track to perform about the same as he did in the last three years at San Francisco. In the regular season, that...

Pablo Sandoval swung at a pitch that was over five feet off the ground

Because today is Matt Duffy Day, this seemed appropriate. Let's check in with Pablo Sandoval in Toronto. He's facing a knuckleballer. How is it going, Pablo? Mm-hmm. And is there a way to quantify that swing?

Red Sox feed off drama

KANSAS CITY — When Pablo Sandoval walked up to the plate last night for the first time since the world learned of his mistimed affection for a woman on Instagram, there was only one thing he was thinking about.“Doing my job on the field, that’s my focus right now,” he said afterward.With Xander Bogaerts on first base, Sandoval saw two pitches outside the strike zone, then punished the third one, sending it all the way to the left-center field wall.“That’s the swing I’m looking for,” he said.

Pablo Sandoval goes back to his happy place

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Pablo Sandoval was so sure before last night’s game he was about to be asked about going on Instagram during the Red Sox game in Atlanta Wednesday night, that he wagged a finger and said, “No. I’m not talking about it. I said everything yesterday.”Sandoval’s worst-case assumption was understandable, given he was back in the lineup last night after his one-game benching. Major League Baseball did not fine him for his deed, only a warning, so he predictably wanted to put the distressing and disappointing event behind him.
