Sandoval was photographed taking part in drills Tuesday at the Red Sox's
Anyone who's been paying attention to baseball for the last seven years knows the difference between Sandoval and, say, Dee Gordon.
It's no secret that the 5-foot-11, 245-pound third baseman doesn't have a typical baseball physique, but he apparently can still get the job done -- why else would Boston sign him to a five-year, $95-million contract?
According to the Boston Globe, Sandoval showed off some pretty fine footwork while taking part in agility drills Tuesday, and Red Sox followers should be pleased to see their newest high-priced star showing up in Florida a few days earlier than required.
Sandoval didn't get the nickname "Kung Fu Panda" for no good reason. It would be a mistake for fans to put too much weight on his appearance.
