Pedroia, 33, is owed $15 million in 2017 on a contract that runs through 2021. Oct 13 - 11:51 AM

Dustin Pedroia hit a solo homer and scored the go-ahead run in the 10th-inning of Sunday's win over the Rays.

Pedroia's dinger in the third inning had the Red Sox on top until the Rays came through with a run in the eighth. He scored the winner on a wacky play in the 10th where he should've been thrown out by 10 feet, but Pedoira danced around catcher Luke Maile before diving in to touch home plate as he dislodged the ball from Maile's glove. Pedroia has gone deep in two straight.

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a grand slam to help the Red Sox defeat the Rays 6-4 on Saturday.

The Sox were trailing in the seventh inning when Pedroia stepped to the plate with two outs and the sacks jacked. He unloaded them with his 14th home run of the season, helping them clinch a playoff berth in the process. The homer also gave him his 100th run scored this year, and the 33-year-old is batting .318/.377/.447 with 71 RBI and seven steals through 148 games.

Sep 20 - 5:28 PM

Sep 20 - 3:05 PM

Dustin Pedroia clubbed a solo home run, but it wasn't enough to lead the Red Sox to victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon in Toronto.

The hot-hitting second baseman tagged J.A. Happ for the solo shot to get the Red Sox on the board in the sixth inning. After finishing the afternoon 1-for-4, Pedroia is now hitting .328/.389/.462 with 13 homers and 65 RBI on the season. He's hitting .462 (48-for-104) over his last 26 games dating back to August 12.
Sep 10 - 4:26 PM

Dustin Pedroia was spotted flexing his right thumb on Tuesday night against the Padres.

Pedroia appeared to jam the thumb while diving back into first base on a Mookie Betts lineout late in the game and manager John Farrell said afterward that "all we can do is wait and see." The veteran second baseman finished 2-for-5 in the 5-1 road victory for Boston. He may sit out Wednesday night as a precautionary measure.
Sep 7 - 9:18 AM

Dustin Pedroia (personal) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Tuesday night.

Pedroia was excused from the club for two days to deal with a private family matter. The veteran is starting at second base and batting leadoff on Tuesday against Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi.
Aug 30 - 4:23 PM

Dustin Pedroia (personal) remains out of the Red Sox lineup Monday night against the Rays.

Pedroia was excused from the Red Sox on Sunday morning to deal with a private family matter. It's not clear when he might return. Brock Holt is starting at second base and batting leadoff Monday versus righty Matt Andriese.
Aug 29 - 3:13 PM

Dustin Pedroia will be away from the Red Sox on Sunday due to a family matter.

The Red Sox will not make a roster move, and it's possible, although not a given, that Pedroia will rejoin the club on Monday. It's unfortunate timing, as Pedroia is red-hot at the plate with 11 hits in his last 12 at-bats. The Red Sox are playing the Sunday night game and haven't released a lineup yet, so it's unclear who will be filling in for Pedroia at second base. Aaron Hill, Brock Holt and Marco Hernandez are the options.
Aug 28 - 1:08 PM

Dustin Pedroia had two hits, two steals and two runs scored against the Rays on Wednesday.

Pedroia doesn't contribute enough in homers and steals to function as an elite fantasy second baseman these days, but he's still plenty useful there and he remains an excellent major leaguer. He's hitting .306 with 83 runs scored in 122 games.
Aug 24 - 11:09 PM

Dustin Pedroia is out of Boston's lineup Thursday.

Deven Marrero will start at second base and hit eighth in the afternoon game at Comerica Park. Aaron Hill is serving as the leadoff man. Boston played a rain-delayed game in Baltimore on Wednesday night and then had to travel to Detroit for this matinee.
