The first Boston Red Sox Spring Training game on the radio is this Friday, February 24th at 1 PM against the New York Mets. One of the players who has a lot to prove this year is Pablo Sandoval.

After coming into camp last year out of shape, Sandoval lost his starting job and ended up lost for the season as a result of surgery. Now he's in camp, looking slimmed down, but I think Red Sox Nation is skeptical.

What do you think? Will Pablo Sandoval play and important role in the 2017 Red Sox? Leave us a note in the comments!

WDEA will be broadcasting 35 Spring Training games February 24th - April 1st. You can view the schedule HERE
