Boston's top prospect is getting his long-awaited promotion to Pawtucket, CSNNE's Evan Drelich reported on Friday shortly after the Red Sox designated Sandoval for assignment. After an unproductive 2015, Sandoval missed all but three games last season with an injury and was on his way to another underwhelming campaign this year.

Red Sox prospect Rafael Devers.

Sandoval is in the third year of the five-year, $95 million deal he signed after the 2014 season.

Sandoval hit.245 with 10 homers in his first year with the Red Sox, posting career lows in almost every offensive category. Sandoval batted.237 (136-for-575) with a.646 OPS during his Red Sox tenure and batted.212 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 32 games this season. In fact, it's almost unprecedented.

The two-time All Star played just 161 games in two-and-a-half injury-plagued seasons for the Sox, failing to come even close to compensating Boston for the dollars they committed to him after seven more or less productive years with the Giants.

Hopeful that a healthy Sandoval could still help the team, the Red Sox gave him his job back at third base. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports said that although he hasn't heard anything concrete, a reunion wouldn't shock him.

What did the Red Sox get for their $95 million?
