Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI to lead the Red Sox to a 9-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.
Four games against the Braves was just what the doctor ordered for the Red Sox. Pedroia had two homers in a game for the seventh time in his career (oddly enough, four of those have come since the start of 2015). He also drove in five runs for the seventh time. Apr 28 - 12:06 AM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-7 with a double, triple and run scored as the Red Sox topped the Astros 7-5 on Sunday night in Houston.

The diminutive second sacker has been on fire at the plate through the first three weeks of the season, slashing .321/.361/.449 with one homer and six RBI. He still hasn't swiped a base though, despite his preseason proclamation that he would be running more in 2016.
Apr 25 - 1:14 AM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-6 and hit his first homer Thursday against the Rays.

The third hit was the 1,500th of his career. At 32, he's quite a long shot to reach 3,000 in his career. Still, he won't need to get all of the there to be Cooperstown worthy. He will need to stay relatively healthy into his mid-30s.

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

It looks to be a simple day off. Marco Hernandez is filling in for Pedroia at second base. The Red Sox also have Chris Young in left field over Brock Holt and Ryan Hanigan at catcher over Christian Vazquez.

Dustin Pedroia finished 3-for-5 with two RBI as the Red Sox topped the Blue Jays 8-4 on Saturday.

Pedroia opened the scoring for the visiting Red Sox with a run-scoring groundout in the top of the third and then later added an RBI double in the top of the sixth. The veteran second baseman is 6-for-19 (.316) through four games this season. If he can stay healthy, he is going to be highly productive.
Apr 9 - 4:11 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-3 with a double Sunday as the Red Sox topped the Phillies 5-1.

Pedroia isn't getting any respect in fantasy leagues this year, even though he was quite good while healthy last year. He still looks like a top-10 second baseman from here, especially with the Boston lineup likely to be better.
Mar 27 - 4:27 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Dustin Pedroia is 8-10 pounds lighter than he was last season.

He's slimmed down a bit after bulking up last offseason. The lighter, more aerodynamic Pedroia should be more active on the base paths this year after recording just eight steals over his last two seasons. Of course, he may not hit for as much power. Pedroia's .441 slugging percentage last season was his highest since 2012.
Feb 22 - 12:56 PM

Dustin Pedroia announced Saturday at the Red Sox' Winter Weekend that he plans to run more in 2016.

The 32-year-old has altered his training regimen this winter in order to improve his speed and agility on the bases. He explained that part of the reason he hasn't run as much in recent seasons is that he was hitting in front of David Ortiz and he didn't want opposing hitters to simply walk Big Papi if he swiped second base. Perhaps he can return to his thieving ways from when he averaged 21 swipes per season from 2011-2013.
Jan 23 - 3:48 PM

Dustin Pedroia was scratched from Saturday's game against the Indians.

With wet playing conditions expected in Cleveland tonight, interim manager Torey Lovullo didn't want to risk having Pedroia re-injure his hamstring. Josh Rutledge is getting the start at second base.

Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Indians.

David Ortiz was the only Red Sox player to do anything offensively in the contest, so it's not like Pedroia was the only one struggling to find traction against Josh Tomlin and company. While injuries have limited the former MVP to just 92 games this season, he's been effective when he's been able to play, hitting .294/.357/.444 with 12 homers and 42 RBI.

Dustin Pedroia is out of Boston's lineup Thursday.

It's just a routine day of rest as the Red Sox play out the string. David Ortiz is also off on Thursday.

Dustin Pedroia is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

He's presumably getting a day of rest. Josh Rutledge will play second base and bat second.

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

He's just getting some rest. Josh Rutledge is at second base in Pedroia's place.
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 03:10:00 PM

Dustin Pedroia clubbed two homers and drove in five runs Wednesday in the rout of the Orioles.

Pedroia has had injury troubles again this year, but he's actually on track to finish with his best OPS since 2011 (he's at .812 right now). He has 12 homers in 332 at-bats after combining for 16 in 1,192 at-bats the previous two years.
