Red Sox announce Pablo Sandoval designated for assignment

The Red Sox announced Friday they have designated third basemen Pablo Sandoval for assignment.

The Venezuela native's time in Boston was tumultuous, as he underperformed despite his résumé as a three-time World Series champion and 2012 World Series MVP with the San Francisco Giants.

In 32 games this season, Sandoval is batting.212 with four home runs and 12 runs batted in and an OPS of.622.

It's also running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and there's a full, physical keyboard below the display. After that, on July 28 to be exact, the BlackBerry KEYone will also be available at Sprint's retail stores.

It proved more challenging than he imagined. In 2016, after losing his job to 25-year-old Travis Shaw, who had never played a full season in the major leagues, Sandoval wound up having left shoulder surgery and missing nearly the entire season.

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

This year didn't start off much better. He was placed on the 10-day disabled list on June 20 with a left inner ear infection. Sandoval battled weight and injury issues and provided more distractions off the field than memorable moments on it. No one will claim Sandoval off waivers, and it's doubtful that he and the Red Sox will want anything other than a clean break when he does eventually clear waivers.
