Last night it was reported that Pablo Sandoval had lost 42 pounds. Today Sandoval said that he has not told anyone how much weight he has lost, but that he will do so when he gets to spring training.
Kinda doesn’t matter what the numbers are. Get a load of this:
Someone open a window. Gettin’ hot in here.
Seriously, though, this is what Sandoval looked like at the end of the season:
We joke a lot, but really, Pablo Sandoval is in The Best Shape of His Life. The Best DAMN Shape of His Life.
The Royals signed free agent reliever Justin Grimm to a one-year, $12.5 million deal, the club announced Sunday. Grimm can earn up to $300,000 in additional incentives, the specifics of which have yet to be disclosed.
The 29-year-old right-hander was released by the Cubs on Thursday. Prior to his release, he was slated to make $2.2 million after losing his arbitration case against the team. Grimm polished off a five-year campaign with the Cubs in 2017 and produced an unimpressive 5.53 ERA, 4.4 BB/9 and 9.6 SO/9 over 55 1/3 innings.
In a corresponding move, right-hander Sam Gaviglio was designated for assignment. He pitched in five games for the Royals this spring, racking up 13 hits, eight runs and seven strikeouts in seven innings.
