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.

Sep 11 - 3:04 PM

Red Sox activated 2B Dustin Pedroia from the 15-day disabled list.

Pedroia is right back in the lineup Tuesday, batting second against Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. The veteran second baseman has been sidelined since the end of June with a nagging right hamstring injury, but he'll attempt to go into the offseason with some peace of mind.
Sep 8 - 3:21 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday.

The thought had been that he'd return on Thursday in a best-case scenario, but Pedroia has ramped up his baseball activities over the last week and it's evidently gone well. The veteran second baseman has been on the shelf with a right hamstring issue since the end of June.
Sep 6 - 11:39 AM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) has been cleared to ramp up his baseball activities.

Pedroia has been coming around slowly but surely and looks to still be in line to return on September 10. The Red Sox' second baseman has been dealing with a right hamstring issue since the end of June.
Aug 31 - 4:22 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) said Thursday that the earliest he'll return from the disabled list is on September 10.

This means that he's still at least three weeks away. Pedroia took batting practice for the first time since landing on the disabled list in late July, but his right hamstring just isn't ready yet.
Aug 20 - 4:58 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) took batting practice Monday for the first time since landing back on the disabled list in late July with a severe right hamstring strain.

Pedroia wasn't expected to begin baseball activities until the final week of August, so this comes as very good news. The platelet-rich plasma treatment he was given apparently accelerated the healing process. Pedroia could feasibly return to the Red Sox in early September. He has appeared in just 75 games this season.
Aug 17 - 3:09 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) won't do any baseball activities until the final week of August.

That probably pushes his return timetable into mid-September, and the Red Sox might just go ahead and shut him down at that point. Pedroia has been out since late July with a right hamstring strain. He was given platelet-rich plasma treatment a couple weeks ago.
Aug 11 - 5:25 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) has yet to resume baseball activities.

It was supposed to happen at some point over the weekend, but it appears Pedroia isn't coming along as quickly as hoped. Pedroia first injured his right hamstring back in late June and had to return to the disabled list in late July after having a setback. There's no timetable for his return.
