Pablo Sandoval On Shoulder Injury, Potential Surgery: ‘It’s Pretty Bad’

Bad just got worse for Pablo Sandoval.

The Boston Red Sox third baseman’s troubles this season have been well-documented, from showing up to spring training overweight to losing his starting job at third base and, most recently, hitting the disabled list with a left shoulder sprain.

Now, it appears the injury could be worse than anyone expected.

Meeting with reporters after Boston’s 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night, Sandoval was asked how bad the injury was and why he was opting to receive a second opinion. His answer, while not very detailed, was telling.

“I don’t know. I’m just going in there to see what’s going on,” he said. “I got the first opinion, and I don’t want to tell you what’s going on, but it’s pretty bad. So I’m gonna go (for) a second opinion. It’s gonna take me some time to decide what we’re gonna do.”

Sandoval will see esteemed surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Monday to determine his next course of action. Check out everything Sandoval had to say, as seen on NESN’s “Red Sox Final,” in the video above.
