Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) said Thursday that the earliest he'll return from the disabled list is on September 10.

This means that he's still at least three weeks away. Pedroia took batting practice for the first time since landing on the disabled list in late July, but his right hamstring just isn't ready yet.

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) took batting practice Monday for the first time since landing back on the disabled list in late July with a severe right hamstring strain.

Pedroia wasn't expected to begin baseball activities until the final week of August, so this comes as very good news. The platelet-rich plasma treatment he was given apparently accelerated the healing process. Pedroia could feasibly return to the Red Sox in early September. He has appeared in just 75 games this season.
Aug 17 - 3:09 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) won't do any baseball activities until the final week of August.

That probably pushes his return timetable into mid-September, and the Red Sox might just go ahead and shut him down at that point. Pedroia has been out since late July with a right hamstring strain. He was given platelet-rich plasma treatment a couple weeks ago.
Aug 11 - 5:25 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) has yet to resume baseball activities.

It was supposed to happen at some point over the weekend, but it appears Pedroia isn't coming along as quickly as hoped. Pedroia first injured his right hamstring back in late June and had to return to the disabled list in late July after having a setback. There's no timetable for his return.
Aug 9 - 9:18 AM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) is expected to resume baseball activities this weekend.

The Red Sox are bringing Pedroia along more slowly this time after rushing him back from his right hamstring injury the first time. He could still be a couple weeks away from a return.
Aug 4 - 8:20 PM

Dustin Pedroia will get a PRP injection for his strained right hamstring on Monday.

That comes with a shutdown period, which will probably push Pedroia's recovery time beyond 15 days. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday afternoon. Brock Holt figures to act as Boston's starting first baseman into mid-to-late August.
Jul 25 - 7:52 PM

Red Sox placed 2B Dustin Pedroia on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Pedroia aggravated his hamstring injury earlier in the week and missed his third straight game on Saturday. He'll head back to the disabled list and have a chance to fully rest. Brock Holt should function as the team's everyday second baseman in his absence.
Jul 25 - 1:44 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) remains out of the Red Sox lineup on Saturday.

It's the third straight game that Pedroia has been forced to miss due to the nagging injury. Once again, Brock Holt will fill in at second base and bat second for the Red Sox against Alfredo Simon on Saturday.
Jul 25 - 1:16 PM

Dustin Pedroia is sitting out for the second straight day Friday due to nagging soreness in his right hamstring.

It's looking like the Red Sox brought Pedroia back from the disabled list too quickly. He was activated a week ago but has just one hit in 22 at-bats since returning and has now sat out two straight due to ongoing soreness. The Red Sox say they're just being cautious, so expect Pedroia to return at some point over the weekend. Brock Holt is filling in again at second base.
Jul 24 - 4:18 PM

Dustin Pedroia is out of Thursday's lineup against the Astros.

He's likely just getting a breather. Brock Holt will fill in at second base.
Jul 23 - 4:13 PM

Red Sox activated 2B Dustin Pedroia from the 15-day disabled list.

Pedroia will jump right back into the Red Sox lineup on Friday. He can safely be activated in all fantasy formats.
Jul 17 - 6:47 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) may not be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

The Red Sox have already optioned Matt Barnes in anticipation of activating Pedroia Friday. It still may happen, but manager John Farrell indicated Thursday that it's not a given. "We’re going to take every available day and hour of workout and treatment that we can," Farrell said. "I think bottom line is Pedey will be on the field when he’s first available." If it turns out Pedroia isn't ready quite yet, the club will bring up a reliever.
Jul 17 - 9:05 AM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list on Friday without going out on a rehab assignment first.

Pedroia was almost ready for activation this weekend, but the club elected to give him some extra time over the All-Star break to heal. He'll be back at second base on Friday in Anaheim.
Jul 12 - 11:29 AM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) was not in the lineup Friday and will likely remain on the disabled list through the All-Star Break.

There was talk about Pedroia being activated on Friday, as he's now eligible to come off the disabled list, but Brock Holt received the start at second base for Friday's game against the Yankees. While the gritty second baseman would surely have loved to start against the Bronx Bombers, it makes sense that the Red Sox would keep him out with just three games left before the break.
