When Pablo Sandoval chose to leave the San Francisco Giants for the Boston Red Sox in free agency, he talked about wanting “new challenges.” Maybe that meant hitting homers over the Green Monster. But maybe it also meant hitting half-court basketball shots from his butt: This appears to be part of his offseason training regimen, and apparently it’s repeatable, because Sandoval did it again the very next day: Yes, the Kung Fu Panda has apparently become some sort of basketball trick-shot master since the Red Sox made him a $100 million man . Maybe he’s spent his need-new-challenges winter watching Dude Perfect videos . You know, their slogan is “five best friends and a panda.” BLS H/N : Cut4 More MLB coverage from Yahoo Sports: – - – - – - – Mike Oz is an editor for Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

The Texas Rangers acquired right-hander Anthony Ranaudo from the Boston Red Sox for left-hander Robbie Ross. With the deal Tuesday night, the Rangers got the 6-foot-7 right-hander who didn’t sign after being picked by them out of a New Jersey high school in the 11th round of the 2007 draft. ”He is a guy we like, we’ve liked for a long time,” Texas general manager Jon Daniels said on a call from the Dominican Republic. He made his major league debut with the Red Sox last season, going 4-3 with a 4.81 ERA in seven starts.

NBA Kobe Bryant will have surgery Wednesday on his torn right rotator cuff, likely ending his 19th season with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers will announce a timetable for Bryant’s recovery after surgery, but coach Byron Scott anticipates losing the third-leading scorer in NBA history for the rest of the year. ”He’s a trooper, so we pray for him that his return will be sooner rather than later.” Bryant’s torn rotator cuff is likely his third straight season-ending injury. He missed the 2013 playoffs with a torn Achilles tendon, and he played just six games last season before breaking a bone near his left knee.
