Free agent third baseman Pablo Sandoval is meeting with the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.
The Red Sox are likely to want any potential deal to include bonuses for Sandoval to keep his weight in order, according to The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo.
No team is allowed to penalize or take away a players money weight issues, according to MLB's collective bargaining agreement. So the Red Sox, or any team that has concerns over Sandoval's weight, would have to give incentives for keeping his weight in order.
Earlier on Monday, Sandoval was greeted at a Boston-area airport by a local report and said he "love being here, and the situation."
