Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) is considered day-to-day after being examined Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Good news for the Red Sox. Pedroia was spiked in the leg by Orioles third baseman Manny Machado on Friday and came down with soreness in his left knee and ankle, but it doesn't sound like he'll be sidelined much longer.
Apr 24 - 3:22 PM

Dustin Pedroia will undergo an MRI on his left knee and ankle on Monday in Boston.

The swelling and soreness in Pedroia's knee and ankle hasn't gone down as expected, so the Red Sox have decided to send him for additional testing. Pedroia was injured on Friday when he was spiked by the Orioles' Manny Machado on a play at second base.
Apr 23 - 11:19 AM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

He's sitting out a second straight game after getting spiked in the leg on Friday on a play at second base. The Red Sox are off Monday and are likely shooting for Pedroia to return Tuesday. Marco Hernandez is handling second base again Sunday, while Xander Bogaerts is again in the leadoff spot. Boston also has Christian Vazquez at catcher.

Dustin Pedroia (knee, ankle) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

Pedroia left Friday's game against the Orioles after he was spiked by Manny Machado in a controversial play at second base. It doesn't sound as through he's going to require a trip to the disabled list, but he'll sit out on Saturday as a precaution.
Apr 22 - 3:16 PM

Dustin Pedroia was forced to leave Friday's game against the Orioles after he was spiked in the calf by a sliding Manny Machado.

It appeared to be a late slide by Machado, which Red Sox' third base coach Brian Butterfield took extreme exception to and got himself tossed from the ballgame. Look for an update on Pedroia's status after the game.
Apr 21 - 10:28 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-4 in the shutout loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Pedroia's power came back nicely last year, but he's collected just one extra-base hit in 55 at-bats so far this year. On the plus side, his exit velocity is slightly above the major league average and he's not striking out much at all (seven times in 14 games). Most likely, he'll be just fine.
Apr 19 - 10:21 PM

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

It's a routine day off for the veteran. Marco Hernandez will start at second base and bat ninth. Xander Bogaerts will hit leadoff against Marcus Stroman.
Apr 18 - 3:12 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with four RBI in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

He'll certainly take it, but it's about as weak of a four-RBI night as they come, as Pedroia drove in a run with a sac fly and three runs with two different infield singles. The Red Sox' second baseman has a hit in all seven games so far this season.
Apr 11 - 11:28 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-2 with a double and two RBI as the Red Sox beat the Nationals 8-1 on Thursday.

Pedroia ends the spring 19-for-39, giving him a cool .487 average. Typically a No. 2 hitter in previous years, he'll occupy the leadoff spot in Boston's order on Opening Day.
Mar 30 - 4:38 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-3 with a pair of runs scored on Thursday against the Pirates.

He also drew a walk, reaching base in all four of his trips to the plate. Pedroia had knee surgery last October but certainly looks healthy this spring, hitting an even .500 across his 26 at-bats. He'll be the Red Sox' leadoff hitter this season.
Mar 23 - 6:24 PM

Dustin Pedroia had a single, a walk and a sac fly in his three plate appearances Tuesday as the Red Sox edged the Blue Jays 5-4.

Pedroia, who is coming off his first healthy season since 2013 and his best offensive season since 2011, is 6-for-15 in the early going.
Mar 14 - 5:04 PM

Dustin Pedroia will continue to hit leadoff for the Red Sox.

Mookie Betts started last season as Boston's leadoff hitter but was eventually moved down in the order so the Red Sox could better utilize his power. Pedroia made a smooth transition to the leadoff spot, slashing .362/.394/.457 over 199 at-bats. Second base is fairly deep this season but the 33-year-old remains an excellent fantasy option in all formats.
Feb 25 - 5:08 PM

Dustin Pedroia said Monday that he's fully recovered from last October's left knee surgery.

Pedroia had his meniscus operated on and said he "did rehab stuff most of the offseason," but he added that he now feels "great, normal, just like previous years." It's obviously not ideal that Pedroia had to spend his winter rehabbing rather than going through his normal training routine, but this ultimately shouldn't be a big deal.
Feb 13 - 7:19 PM

Dustin Pedroia underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his left knee.

It's a relatively minor procedure and Pedroia should have a normal offseason. The veteran second baseman produced one of his best batting lines in years in 2016, slashing .318/.376/.449 with 15 home runs and 74 RBI in 154 games for the American League East-champion Red Sox. Pedroia, 33, is owed $15 million in 2017 on a contract that runs through 2021.
