I've heard a few suggestions that the #SFGiants or another club could sign Pablo Sandoval to a contract with a weight/conditioning clause. Here's how it works. Under the basic agreement, a team can sign Sandoval to a deal that includes bonus provisions if he maintains a certain weight. That's been done a few times in the past. But the Giants (or any other team) cannot sign Sandoval to a contract that allows them to stop paying him or reduce his salary if he's over some predetermined weight. That's not permissible under the labor agreement.
