Reports: Red Sox have serious interest in Sandoval

It has reportedly come down to a two-team race for Pablo Sandoval, with the Giant and Red Sox most squarely in the mix to land the free agent third baseman.

Sandoval has spent his entire career in San Francisco, and the Giants have made it clear since winning the World Series that bringing him back is a priority (they made him a qualifying offer, which he rejected).

But the Red Sox have also emerged as a strong candidate to get Sandoval, who could play third base and transition into the designated hitter role in Boston if/when David Ortiz retires.

According to FOXSports.com‘s Ken Rosenthal, the White Sox and Blue Jays have also had “limited” interest in Sandoval. He also says the Sox are weighing other options.
