Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not close to beginning baseball activities.
Pedroia was placed back on the disabled list on May 30, five days after returning from an offseason cartilage restoration procedure on his left knee. "It’s major surgery. He didn’t know what to expect," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday. "So we are where we are now. We’re hoping that, yeah, he’ll be back. When? We don’t know. I still believe that he’s going to contribute this season and he’s going to help us to win." Jun 20 - 1:01 AM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) still has not resumed baseball activities.

Pedroia landed back on the disabled list less than a week after making his season debut, and there is no timetable for his return to action at this point. Eduardo Nunez will continue to serve as Boston's primary second baseman.
Jun 12 - 5:29 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will resume baseball activities this week.

Pedroia was placed on the disabled list Saturday with left knee inflammation, but it has been determined that the issue has nothing to do with the knee surgery Pedroia had last October. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters Tuesday that the hope is Pedroia will be back "sooner than later." Boston will likely take things very carefully with the veteran second baseman, but Pedroia should be able to return before the end of June -- assuming there are no setbacks.
Jun 5 - 10:53 PM

Red Sox placed INF Dustin Pedroia on to 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 30, with left knee inflammation.

Pedroia had been held out since earlier in the week due to renewed soreness in his surgically-repaired knee. The Red Sox will take every possible precaution not to rush him back.
Jun 2 - 12:23 PM

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

Pedroia is nursing some soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee. Brock Holt is at second base.
Jun 1 - 4:14 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) has been scratched from Thursday's game against the Astros.

He's day-to-day with left knee soreness. The former AL MVP hasn't looked comfortable since coming off the disabled list last week, collecting just one hit in 11 at-bats. Hopefully this is just a case of the Red Sox being overly cautious. Brock Holt, who had been slated to start in right field, will move to second base with Blake Swihart getting the nod in right.
May 31 - 7:55 PM

Dustin Pedroia is in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

Pedroia got some rest on Monday, but he's back in there at second base on Tuesday. He'll bat sixth against Marco Estrada. The veteran second baseman is 0-for-7 with two walks and a strikeout in two games since returning from offseason knee surgery. Daily Slant: He's started slow since returning to the lineup, but today looks like a good spot for Pedroia to start to get it going. He's relatively cheap across daily sites, has a career .452 average against Estrada in 31 AB's and the Red Sox have one of the highest run totals today at 5.6.
May 29 - 3:08 PM

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

Pedroia will sit after playing back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday. Eduardo Nunez will make the start at second base and bat sixth against right-hander Aaron Sanchez.
May 28 - 9:38 AM

Dustin Pedroia will make his 2018 debut on Saturday against the Braves.

Pedroia was activated from the disabled list on Friday but didn't appear in the game. He's starting at second base and batting sixth for the Red Sox against Sean Newcomb and the Braves on Saturday. Daily Slant: It will be great to see Pedroia back on the field after an extended absence to start the 2018 campaign, but be hesitant to use him for DFS purposes in his debut against Braves ace Sean Newcomb. Newcomb has neutralized RH hitters this year, only allowing a .248 wOBA and 1 HR against 180 RH batters this season. Pedroia will no doubt soon be a great piece for DFS lineups, but today may not be the day.
May 26 - 9:48 AM

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

Pedroia was activated from the disabled list Friday, but he'll be eased back into game action. Brock Holt is at second base.
May 25 - 2:59 PM

Red Sox activated 2B Dustin Pedroia from the 10-day disabled list.

Pedroia missed almost the first two months of the season after having a cartilage restoration procedure on his left knee last October, but he's ready to go now after five rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket (he went just 1-for-14 at the plate in those games). He will hit lower in the order than his usual No. 2 spot, at least initially, and will turn 35 later this season. Pedroia is probably still a good bet for batting average but seems unlikely to bring much else to the table for fantasy owners.
May 25 - 11:39 AM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not expected to bat any higher than sixth in the Red Sox' lineup upon his activation from the disabled list Friday.

Pedroia has often been the team's No. 2 hitter, but Andrew Benintendi is doing a fine job in that spot and the team doesn't want to disrupt a lineup that's been so good. The veteran second baseman is coming back from knee surgery and went just 1-for-14 at the plate for Triple-A Pawtucket on his rehab assignment.
May 25 - 10:19 AM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will be activated for Friday's game against the Braves.

The 34-year-old is back after missing Boston's first 60 games while recovering from offseason knee surgery. Pedroia might be eased in at first, but it shouldn't take long for him to regain his post as the everyday second baseman. Eduardo Nunez, who had been filling in at second base, will shift to a utility role. Pedroia collected just one hit in 14 at-bats during his rehab assignment for Triple-A Pawtucket.
May 24 - 5:05 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will play seven innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Pedroia (knew) will then have the opportunity to play the next day if the knee holds up; an 11:05 a.m. tilt on Thursday. The Red Sox reportedly want to see Pedroia play in back-to-back games before calling him to Boston. If he can go on Wednesday and Thursday, he'll fulfill that, and he could be activated by the end of the weekend.
May 23 - 5:45 PM

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will play in two more rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday and Wednesday before being re-evaluated.

It's possible he'll be activated after that for the beginning of the Red Sox' six-game homestand on Friday. Pedroia has just one hit in eight at-bats in his first three rehab games for the PawSox but has drawn a couple walks. The important thing, of course, is how his surgically-repaired left knee feels, and all indications are that he feels good.
