Pablo Sandoval 1.5

The Kung Fu Panda a Miami Marlin? It’s not impossible.

Now 33-years-old, Pablo Sandoval is listed as a five-foot-11, 180 lb. third baseman on The Baseball Cubs, but he’s about 90 lbs. heavier than that. Now a 13-year MLB veteran, there are many who will say that Sandoval’s best seasons are behind him.

Sandoval has slashed .280/.332/.448 in 1277 contests over the course of his career, first with the San Francisco Giants, then with the Boston Red Sox, then back to the Giants again.

A pretty durable player through the first part of his career, Sandoval played in 108 games last season, the most since 2015. He hit .268/.313/.507 with 14 round-trippers and 41 RBI. His 1.5 WAR total was his highest since he earned 3.4 in 2014.

I’m not advocating the Marlins go out and sign Sandoval. I think they should stay far away from him, but he remains available if they for some reason are interested.
