Dustin Pedroia had a single, a walk and a sac fly in his three plate appearances Tuesday as the Red Sox edged the Blue Jays 5-4.

Pedroia, who is coming off his first healthy season since 2013 and his best offensive season since 2011, is 6-for-15 in the early going.
Mar 14 - 5:04 PM

Dustin Pedroia will continue to hit leadoff for the Red Sox.

Mookie Betts started last season as Boston's leadoff hitter but was eventually moved down in the order so the Red Sox could better utilize his power. Pedroia made a smooth transition to the leadoff spot, slashing .362/.394/.457 over 199 at-bats. Second base is fairly deep this season but the 33-year-old remains an excellent fantasy option in all formats.

Dustin Pedroia said Monday that he's fully recovered from last October's left knee surgery.

Pedroia had his meniscus operated on and said he "did rehab stuff most of the offseason," but he added that he now feels "great, normal, just like previous years." It's obviously not ideal that Pedroia had to spend his winter rehabbing rather than going through his normal training routine, but this ultimately shouldn't be a big deal.

Dustin Pedroia underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his left knee.

It's a relatively minor procedure and Pedroia should have a normal offseason. The veteran second baseman produced one of his best batting lines in years in 2016, slashing .318/.376/.449 with 15 home runs and 74 RBI in 154 games for the American League East-champion Red Sox. Pedroia, 33, is owed $15 million in 2017 on a contract that runs through 2021.

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.

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.

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.
