Pablo Sandoval reported to spring training with the Boston Red Sox and addressed his weight, saying no one from the organization asked him to lose weight in the offseason, according to an ESPN report.

Sandoval signed a five-year, $95-million deal prior to the 2015 season and had the worst season of his career. He appeared to gain weight with Boston, finished the season with a .245 batting average and was the lowest-ranked defensive third baseman in the majors.

“I don’t weigh. I don’t weigh in at all,” Sandoval said. “I just do my work, try to do everything I can out there.”

Red Sox Manager John Farrell, according to the report, said Sandoval was “roughly 20 pounds lighter than the last game he played for us in 2015.” Sandoval did not appear lighter Sunday.

The Red Sox reportedly mandated Sandoval lose weight in the offseason, but he said that was not the case. Boston bench coach Torey Lovullo, who served as the team’s interim manager to finish last season while Farrell was treated for cancer, said on the last day of the season that the team talked to Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez about losing weight.

“I don’t got nothing to prove,” Sandoval said. “I just prepare myself to perform well, to support my teammates to play well, to try to get to the final, to the World Series.”

YANKEES: New York is utilizing a hill built during the offseason on a back field at Steinbrenner Field as a new conditioning tool.

Players have dubbed it “Mount Krause” in honor of Yankees director of strength and conditioning Matt Krause.

“I just call it the hill,” Krause said Sunday after the Yankees’ third spring training workout. “It’s a 30-yard incline at about nine degrees. So, over the 30 yards it’s going to be roughly about 10 feet high from the base to the top.”

Krause brought the idea with him when he left the Cincinnati Reds and joined the Yankees for the 2014 season.

RANGERS: Jeremy Guthrie, who started Game 7 of the 2014 World Series for the Kansas City Royals, signed a minor league contract with a spring training invitation with Texas on Sunday.

Guthrie, who was 8-8 with a 5.95 ERA in 30 games last season, was not placed on the Royals’ postseason roster last year. He had a 6.10 ERA in 24 starts, but made only one start after Aug. 18.

Guthrie, who turns 37 on April 8, has a 91-108 record with a 4.37 ERA in 305 major league games with Cleveland, Baltimore, Colorado and Kansas City.

DODGERS: Los Angeles and Cuban pitcher Yaisel Sierra finalized a $30 million, six-year contract.

The 24-year-old right-hander will get a $6 million signing bonus in the deal.

Sierra pitched five seasons in Cuba’s Serie Nacional with Holguin (2010-14) and Sancti Spiritus (2012), going 16-21 with 25 saves and a 4.23 ERA in 131 games. He pitched for the country’s gold medal-winning national team in the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games.

GIANTS: That first moment lacing up the spikes again meant so much to Joe Panik, simple as the task might seem.

With his troublesome back healthy and pain-free at last, Panik feels “normal,” and ready to go for San Francisco.

The team’s second baseman was limited to 100 games last season because of a lingering back issue. He batted .312 with eight home runs, 37 RBI and 119 hits, and might have reached 200 hits if he hadn’t gotten hurt after his All-Star first half.

REDS: Outfielder Jay Bruce reported to camp on Sunday. It was a surprise that he was two days early – and that he was still on Cincinnati’s roster at all.

It was no secret the veteran was on the trading block during the offseason.

In his 12th year of professional baseball, Bruce has been through the complete cycle of building and rebuilding. Many expected him to be traded for prospects, but instead he walked into a clubhouse filled with young players who are part of another rebuilding plan.

Bruce and the Reds avoided arbitration when they agreed on a six-year contract after the 2010 season. This is the last year of that contract.
