    FWIW Rafael Devers' current listed height and weight of 6-foot-0, 240 pounds, give him a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 32.5, safely in the obese range:

    BMI is not always fair to athletes (and some non-athletes).

    240 pounds
    Sandoval broke into the big leagues in 2008 and was listed at 240 pounds at the time. In his first full rookie season in 2009 and at the young age of 23, the Kung Fu Panda batted .Apr 16, 2013

    Sandoval was 5'10" 240 pounds and is now 268. Will Devers trim down or balloon up?

    I'm skeptical of that weight, as other sources (some from last year) list him from 195-210. Are you saying he put on 30 pounds in a year?
    I owe Bellhorn04 $100 (virtual), which I will pay off with two tix to a Seadogs game in 2021.

    The MLB Red Sox website and Baseball Reference currently list Rafael Devers at 240 pounds:

    https://www.mlb.com/redsox/roster/40-man

    https://www.baseball-reference.com/p...everra01.shtml

    Under "Young Graduates," SoxProspects lists Devers at 235 pounds:

    https://soxprospects.com/players/devers-rafael.htm

    Wikipedia lists Devers at 195 and 210 pounds:

    Yes, Aaron Judge (6'7" 282 pounds, 31.5 BMI), for one would probably object to being called obese.

    This merely overweight poster (5'10" 209 pounds, 30.0 BMI) would object as well.

    No. That’s his average days per year on IL...

    BMI is used best to track each personís own personal growth. The numbers are guidelines only, yet the populous decided to use them as strict, cut and dry numbers to determine if someone was overweight or obese.

    With obesity, the eye test usually works pretty well.
