Pablo Sandoval of the Boston Red Sox is looking like a new man.
Known as Kung Fu Panda for his roly poly appearance, Sandoval became the butt of jokes when a video surfaced of his belt bursting open while he took a swing in an April game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
But at least for the moment, Sandoval appears to have won the battle of the bulge. In a photo shared Tuesday by WBZ TV sports reporter Dan Roche, the Panda looks relatively svelte.
Wonder what his secret was. Many of us would probably like to know ― even if we don’t have to get ready for spring training.
