Pablo Sandoval has already moved on and found himself a new home, no, it’s not an Arby’s, the Panda has signed with his former team, the San Francisco Giants. The same team that wouldn’t sign him previously because Pablo refused to sign a contract that had a weight clause in it. The Red Sox, sadly didn’t go that route.
The Giants reportedly agreed to a minor league deal with third baseman on Wednesday, according to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez and FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman.

Sandoval, 30, was formally released by the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday after he was designated for assignment on July 14. He was officially released today by the Red Sox
The two-time All-Star spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Giants before signing with the Red Sox in 2015. He will go down as one of the worst contract signings in sports history. In 3 seasons in Boston, Sandoval played only 161 games, batted .237, hit 14 homers and drove in 59 runs. Sandoval has 2 years remaining of his 5yr/$95 million contract with the Red Sox that they will unfortunately have to eat (the irony).
