It's Not Over Yet For The Panda
On Monday September 14th as first Tweeted by Jon Heyman of the MLB Network Pablo Sandoval has signed with the Atlanta Braves organization. Pablo will be under a minor league deal and begin training at a Braves alternate site. This is good news for Pablo, our fun loving, switch hitting, bubble blowing fan favorite as the Braves have one of major leagues worst duos at third base. Austin Riley and Johan Camargo through 294 plate appearances are running out a .220/.272/.396 line on the season. I'm not saying Pablo is the answer coming in with a subpar line of his own .220/.278/.268 through 90 plate appearances but he is a clubhouse guy who switch hits with a championship pedigree. This will be highly useful for a Braves team that is tops in the NL East. Camargo was sent down earlier in the month so who knows maybe there is a chance we will get to see more of that post season panda we all love.
