ATLANTA (KRON) — Pablo Sandoval admitted that he was using Instagram during the Red Sox’ 5-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.
Using the photo-sharing app is a violation of the team’s social media policy. The Panda is not in the lineup for Thursday night’s game.
The ex-San Francisco Giants slugger told reporters that he apologized to his teammates and manager, and that he accepted his one-game punishment.
