Dustin Pedroia (ribs) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Pedroia hasn't played since taking a pitch in the ribs on Sunday. The hope is that he'll be ready to play Saturday. Josh Rutledge continues to fill in at second base.

Dustin Pedroia (ribs) is out of the Red Sox starting lineup again on Wednesday.

Josh Rutledge is at second base and Deven Marrero is at third base in the afternoon finale at Kauffman Stadium. Pedroia took a pitch to the ribs on Sunday night and hasn't played since, though X-rays turned up negative and he is expected to avoid the disabled list.

Dustin Pedroia (ribs) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup Tuesday.

Pedroia took a pitch to the ribs on Sunday night and was in serious pain, but X-rays turned up negative and he's considered day-to-day for now. Josh Rutledge will start at second base for Boston on Tuesday night against the Royals. Daily Slant: Pedroia's absence will open up a spot towards the top of the lineup for Chris Young, who will slot second against Matt Strahm. For those looking for near minimum priced hitters to make paying up for Chris Sale more reasonable, Young is well worth considering against LHP. His sample size this season is still small, but Young finished with a .260 ISO and 165 wRC+ against LHP last year, numbers that make his current asking price look like a bargain.

Dustin Pedroia (ribs) is not in the Red Sox' lineup Monday.

Pedroia was hit in the ribs by a pitch Sunday and said he actually spit up some blood that night. X-rays came back clean and he should ultimately be fine, but he's understandably still sore and is expected to miss a couple games. Josh Rutledge is at second base.
Jun 19 - 4:29 PM

Dustin Pedroia (rib cage) was cleared to fly with the Red Sox to Kansas City early Monday morning.

Pedroia underwent X-rays at a hospital in Houston after getting hit by a pitch in the seventh inning of Sunday night's win over the Astros. That scan apparently turned up negative, and he'll be with the team at Kauffman Stadium on Monday. Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Sunday's game that Pedroia began experiencing swelling and tightness around his lat and lost some range of motion, but this doesn't sound like anything too serious. Consider him day-to-day.

Dustin Pedroia delivered a walk-off RBI single in the 11th inning on Monday, propelling the Red Sox to a 6-5 victory over the visiting Phillies.

Pablo Sandoval got things started with a leadoff single in the 11th inning and was replaced by pinch-runner Deven Marrero. Sandy Leon then sacrificed him to second base and Mookie Betts was intentionally walked, setting the stage for Pedroia. After falling behind 0-2, he punched a single into right field that plated Marrero and sent the Red Sox' faithful home happy.
Jun 13 - 12:18 AM

Dustin Pedroia finished 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, a run scored, an RBI and two walks in Sunday's game against the Tigers.

Pedroia took the collar in the series opener in his first game back from the 10-day disabled list, but he warmed up quickly by going 4-for-7 with two doubles, two RBI and four runs scored in the final two games of the series. He'll look to keep it going against the very hittable Jerad Eickhoff (0-7, 5.15 ERA) in Monday's interleague series opener against the Phillies.
Jun 12 - 1:57 AM

Red Sox activated 2B Dustin Pedroia from the 10-day disabled list.

Pedroia missed the minimum 10 days with a mildly sprained left wrist. He'll be back at second base against Jordan Zimmermann and the Tigers.
Jun 9 - 3:17 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) confirmed that he will be activated from the disabled list Friday.

That's been the plan all long, for Pedroia to miss just 10 days. The veteran second baseman has been out since May 30 with a minor left wrist sprain.
Jun 8 - 3:57 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) said he expects to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

That's the first day he's eligible. Pedroia took grounders and did some dry swings on Saturday at Camden Yards and reported feeling great after the workout. The veteran second baseman landed on the disabled list May 30 with a left wrist sprain.
Jun 3 - 5:46 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is taking grounders Saturday.

It'll be his first taste of baseball activities since he landed on the disabled list May 30 with a left wrist sprain. Pedroia has already been running, but the big test for him will obviously be hitting. The hope is he can return to the Red Sox active roster in about a week.
Jun 3 - 4:26 PM

Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is expected to resume baseball activities soon.

"He’s been doing some running," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "He’ll do some more here (Thursday). He did some (Wednesday) over in Chicago. He’s showing improvement (Thursday). Some of that swelling is reducing quite a bit so the range of motion is starting to get there. And as that clears up, as that gets completely out of there, then the strengthening takes place and eventually a bat gets put back in his hand. But he’s responded pretty darn well the last two days here." Barring a setback, Pedroia is expected to be activated next Friday when he's first eligible.
Jun 2 - 9:04 AM

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said he expects Dustin Pedroia (wrist) to return from the disabled list in 10 days.

Pedroia injured his left wrist in an ugly collision at first base Monday, but an MRI ruled out any major structural damage. "It’s really the best-case scenario in many ways," Dombrowski told reporters Tuesday. "We think at the end of the 10-day period he'll be fine." Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and batting second for the Red Sox on Tuesday night against the White Sox.
May 30 - 5:57 PM

Red Sox placed 2B Dustin Pedroia on the 10-day disabled list with a left wrist sprain.

The move is now official, as Pablo Sandoval (knee) has been activated from the disabled list to replace him on the active roster. Pedroia suffered what's being reported as a "severe" sprain of his wrist during Monday's game, though he doesn't have any structural damage. As of now, the expectation is that he'll miss at least two weeks. Deven Marrero and Josh Rutledge should see time at second base for now.
