Dustin Pedroia said Saturday that he expects his power to return in 2015 following surgery to repair a left wrist issue that bothered him throughout last season.
"The ball’s going to go farther," Pedroia said. "The balls are going 400 feet now (in batting practice). And then, when you add 5 mph (against pitchers), I’m not a chemist or anything, it’s probably going to go 500." The second baseman noted that the wrist issue kept him from doing any upper-body workouts last year, which sapped his bat speed and strength. Pedroia had a career-low seven homers and .376 slugging percentage in 2014, but those numbers have a good chance to rebound in 2015. Jan 25 - 9:13 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is doing "great" and has been completely cleared for baseball activities.

Pedroia underwent season-ending surgery on his left wrist last September. The injury bothered him for nearly the entire season, resulting in a disappointing .278/.337/.376 batting line with just seven home runs and six stolen bases. It's fair to expect a bounceback in 2015, even if he's no longer one of the elite options at second base in fantasy leagues.

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) said Wednesday on Boston's WEEI that he is already "back to 100 percent" health.

Pedroia underwent season-ending surgery on his left wrist in early September, capping off a disappointing year in which he batted just .278/.337/.376 with seven homers and six stolen bases (both career-lows). "Now that [the wrist is] fixed, it’s night and day," Pedroia told WEEI. "I can already tell. There’s a lot of IOUs to hand out to people, so I’m pretty excited about it." The 31-year-old second baseman is fully capable of bouncing back in 2015.

Dustin Pedroia has been named the 2014 American League Gold Glove winner at second base.

Pedroia's offense has been in decline, but he remains a fantastic defensive second baseman. The Gold Glove is his second straight and fourth overall. He beat out Robinson Cano and Ian Kinsler for the award.

Dustin Pedroia underwent successful surgery on his left wrist on Thursday.

Specifically, he underwent a "first dorsal compartment release and a tenosynovectomy" of his wrist. Either way, he's expected to be fully recovered by spring training next year. Pedroia finished 2014 with a career-worst .278/.337/.376 batting line.

Dustin Pedroia will undergo season-ending surgery Thursday on his injured left hand.

Pedroia has been dealing with pain in the wrist for nearly the entire 2014 campaign and it has resulted in a career-worst .278/.337/.376 batting line. The star second baseman should be ready for the start of spring training in 2015 and will be a strong bounceback candidate in his age 31 season.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said in a radio interview on WEEI 850 AM Wednesday that Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is "probably inactive" for the rest of the season.

Farrell noted that a date for wrist surgery for Pedroia hasn't been set yet, but it sounds like, as expected, that he's indeed done for the season whether he has an operation or not. A procedure is considered likely. Pedroia has played through pain in his left wrist/thumb area since early April, which has no doubt contributed to a disappointing .278/.337/.376 batting line.

Dustin Pedroia could undergo season-ending surgery on his left hand.

We already knew that he may be shut down for the season, but the news that he could have an operation is new information. Pedroia admitted that his hand/wrist has been bothering him for essentially the entire season, which would help explain his disappointing .278/.337/.376 batting line with just seven homers. His numbers were also down in 2013 due to a left thumb issue that he eventually had surgery for. Pedroia noted that if he does elect to have surgery, the procedure wouldn't be as invasive as the last one and he'd have a normal offseason.

Dustin Pedroia could be shut down for the season due to lingering discomfort in his left wrist.

An MRI was taken on the wrist Tuesday and showed only inflammation, but the discomfort isn't going to fade for Pedroia until he gets an extended period of rest. The Red Sox entered play Tuesday with a 63-81 record. It's probably wise to let the veteran second baseman get an early start on his offseason rest.

Pedroia suffered a concussion Saturday when he took a forearm to the head in a nasty collision at second base, but he's apparently improved dramatically in recent days.

Pedroia took a forearm to the head in Saturday's contest against the Rays and has been experiencing concussion-like symptoms ever since. It's very likely that he will need a couple of days off, and will have to pass the standard concussion protocol before he's cleared to return to the lineup.
