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 Mets announced that a handful of minor leaguers have been invited to big league spring training camp. Among them is former football star and current outfielder Tim Tebow.
Tebow, 31, spent last season with Double-A Binghamton. His season ended in July due to a broken hamate bone. Overall, he hit .273/.336/.399 with six home runs and 36 RBI in 298 plate appearances. While the numbers aren’t anything earth-shattering, they are certainly better than what many skeptics thought he could put up in the minors, especially at Double-A.
Tebow will likely begin the season with Triple-A Syracuse. If he performs well, he could get a call up to the big leagues in the event of an injury, or in September when rosters expand.
