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.

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.

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.
Jun 1 - 10:11 AM

An MRI taken Saturday on Dustin Pedroia's right hand showed no fractures or structural damage.

Pedroia also underwent X-rays, which also turned up negative. The second baseman is day-to-day with a bruised right hand that he suffered in a late at-bat Friday. He is not in the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday night and will probably miss Sunday as well.
May 31 - 7:35 PM

X-rays taken Saturday on Dustin Pedroia's right hand turned up negative.

Pedroia is out of Boston's lineup on Saturday against the Rays after suffering a nasty right hand contusion in his final at-bat Friday night. He also underwent an MRI, and the Red Sox are still waiting for those results. The second baseman is considered day-to-day for now.
May 31 - 4:28 PM

Dustin Pedroia is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rays.

Pedroia suffered a right hand contusion in Friday's game. Jonathan Herrera gets the start at second base in his place, and will bat eighth.
May 31 - 3:34 PM

Dustin Pedroia was removed from Friday's game against the Rays due to a right hand contusion.

He apparently sustained the injury during his final at-bat in the ninth inning. He will head for further tests on Saturday, after which the team should provide an update on his status.
May 30 - 11:45 PM

Dustin Pedroia was removed from the ninth inning of Friday's game against the Rays due to an apparent injury.

He was removed after his at-bat in the ninth inning, but no reason has yet been given as to why. The team should provide an update on his status shortly.
May 30 - 10:54 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4 with a double and a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's win over the Braves.

Every regular in the Red Sox lineup one through eight logged at least one hit, but Pedroia led them all with three. Pedroia singled and scored as the Red Sox took the lead with a four-run seventh inning. The second baseman is slashing .278/.353/.392. The power remains curiously absent for Pedroia even after setting a career-low with a .415 slugging percentage last season.
May 27 - 10:43 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in the Red Sox' 5-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Pedroia doubled to go along with his second home run of the season. He's hit in seven of his last eight games, batting .375 with eight runs scored and six RBI in that stretch. The second baseman's season line is up to a Pedroia-like .289/.361/.421.
May 11 - 8:16 PM

Dustin Pedroia struck out four times for just the second time in his career Wednesday against the Reds.

Pedroia did single in his other at-bat, so it wasn't a total loss. Still, it's pretty shocking to see four strikeouts from him. It had happened once before, but that was in a 13-inning game in which he got six at-bats. He'd had just three other games in which he had struck out three times.
May 7 - 11:08 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Tuesday's extra-innings win over the Reds.

Pedroia's two runs scored give him 22, good for fifth-most in the American League. After scuffling a bit early, the second baseman has hits in 16 of his last 19 games. Pedroia's got his line up to .287/.353/.404 for the year.
May 6 - 11:29 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with a grand slam, two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored in Friday's 7-1 win over the Athletics.

His sixth-inning blast gave the Red Sox some much-needed insurance. The home run was his first of the season and the 100th of his career. Quite an emphatic way to do it. The grand slam also pushed him over 500 RBI for his career. He's now sitting on 503.
May 2 - 11:36 PM

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-5 and scored the game winning run on a throwing error in Sunday night's crazy come-from-behind 6-5 victory over the Orioles.

After falling behind 5-0 early, the Red Sox scored three in the sixth and two in the seventh to tie things up. Pedroia lined a one-out double off Brian Matusz in the ninth, advanced to third on a wild pitch then scampered home on a David Lough throwing error relaying in a line drive.
