Dustin Pedroia (illness) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday against the Angels.

Pedroia missed Sunday's game because of a mild illness. He has also been dealing with some soreness in his foot. The veteran second baseman is limping to the finish line in what has been a disappointing 2014 season.

Dustin Pedroia is not available to play Sunday due to illness.

He should be ready to go in a day or two. Brock Holt is filling in at second base Sunday in Pedroia's place.

Dustin Pedroia (foot) is in the starting lineup for the Red Sox on Saturday.

Pedroia was experiencing soreness after fouling a ball off his foot in Friday's contest, but the pain has subsided enough for him to give it a go on Saturday. He makes for an interesting option in daily formats against Brad Peacock and the Astros.

Dustin Pedroia may not be available to play on Saturday after fouling a ball of his foot in the third inning of Friday's game.

Pedroia is a gamer and will certainly try to tough it out, but fantasy owners should be prepared for the possibility that he misses a day.
Aug 15 - 11:26 PM

Dustin Pedroia had a productive night at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a two-run ground-rule double in Thursday's win against the Astros.

Pedroia capped off a seven-run sixth inning by knocking in Will Middlebrooks and Jackie Bradley, Jr. with a ground rule double to right field. He had singled and scored previously in the inning. Thursday's performance -- his fourth multi-hit game in his last six contests -- brings his slash line up to .285/.347/.382 with five home runs and 45 RBI.
Aug 14 - 10:36 PM

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

It's just a day of rest, as the Red Sox will go with Brock Holt at second base in Pedroia's place in the matinee contest versus the Reds. David Ortiz is also sitting out at the National League park, with Mike Napoli handling first base.
Aug 13 - 10:18 AM

Dustin Pedroia had his third straight multi-hit game Sunday, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored against the Angels.

Pedroia started to wake up in July, posting a .289/.340/.340 line, and he's carried that over into August. Through Sunday, Pedroia is 14-for-41 (.341) with a home run, five RBI and eight runs scored in nine games this month. It's got his overall line up to .282/.344/.378, and owners who stuck with the diminutive second baseman are being rewarded for their patience.

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in the Red Sox 4-3 win over the Yankees on Friday.

Pedroia hit a ground rule double in the third to knock in Brock Holt after Holt tripled, then smacked an RBI single in the seventh to drive in rookie Mookie Betts. It was a nice game for Pedroia, who could use a lot more like this. This season, he's hitting .278/.343/.374. The average and OBP are fine, but it's clear that Pedroia has lost a bit of his laser show power as injuries and the inevitable march of time have worn on him.
Aug 2 - 12:03 AM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Rays.

Pedroia singled and came around to score on David Ortiz' home run in the third inning. The stolen base was just his third of the season, as his speed has been largely a non-factor this year. He's 6-for-15 in his last four games to run his overall line to .274/.341/.368.
Jul 27 - 5:33 PM

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Blue Jays.

It's a routine day of rest for the 30-year-old second baseman, who has registered a disappointing .269/.337/.363 batting line with four home runs and two stolen bases in 99 games this season. Brock Holt is at second.
Jul 24 - 9:14 AM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Pedroia's fifth-inning single broke a scoreless tie, but it would turn out to be the only run the Red Sox would score on the evening. It's Pedroia's third three-hit game out of his last four. While he hasn't hit for a whole lot of power, he has at least been getting on base, as he's slashing .277/.346/.383 with four home runs and 31 RBI on the season.
Jul 1 - 11:15 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

It's been a disappointing year for the second baseman, but he's found a bit of success in recent days. In his last five games, Pedroia has three doubles, three runs scored and four RBI. He's still batting just .267/.341/.377 on the year.
Jun 17 - 10:21 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI versus the Tigers on Saturday.

The assumption was that Pedroia's home run power would come back some this year after he was limited by a torn thumb ligament last year, but the homer tonight was just his third in 59 games this season. He also has a mere 20 RBI. At 30, he shouldn't be over the hill just yet, and he could always go back to producing like an elite fantasy second baseman over the final four months. He just hasn't been anything close to that thus far.
Jun 8 - 12:08 AM

Dustin Pedroia is back in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

Pedroia sat out Saturday's game with a bruised right hand, but he's been cleared of any fractures and structural damage and is ready to return to action. The second baseman is batting a disappointing .275/.349/.383 with two homers and two stolen bases so far this season.
