How were the Red Sox rewarded for this ransom? With a.237/.286/.360 slashline in 161 games, a far cry from the.294/.346/.465 with the Giants.
Sandoval has been designated for assignment, the team announced on Friday.
Sandoval was on the DL with an inner ear infection.
He averaged 24 points per game in his career at Hendricken, and put up 12 rebounds, five assists, and three steals as a senior to help lead the Hawks to a perfect 21-0 record.
It's a pricey decision for the Red Sox, as Sandoval is owed $18 million in each of the next two seasons. But the move now paves the way for top prospect Rafael Devers to get his long-awaited promotion to Triple-A.
