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.

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.
Jul 10 - 3:12 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) was seen fielding grounders prior to Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

Pedroia was placed on the disabled list on June 25. He's eligible to return on Friday, but the team has not yet announced whether they'll keep him on longer. Logically, given that there would be just three games before the All-Star Break anyway, it might be in the Red Sox best interest to hold him back and simply wait.
Jul 7 - 4:41 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) will take batting practice on Thursday.

Pedroia has made nice progress since being placed on the disabled list last Friday with a strained right hamstring. There's currently no timetable for his return, but the start of the second half looks doable.
Jul 1 - 11:23 AM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) is making progress and could ramp up his activities this week.

Pedroia went on the disabled list with a right hamstring strain just four days ago, so this is certainly encouraging. There's currently no timetable for his return, but he would seem to have a good shot to return at the start of the second half.
Jun 29 - 5:11 PM

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

Pedroia will probably need around three weeks of recovery time. Brock Holt is starting at second base for the Red Sox on Thursday afternoon against the Orioles. Deven Marrero could also see some starts there.
Jun 25 - 11:31 AM

Dustin Pedroia left Wednesday's game with right hamstring tightness.

That sounds better than the injury looked, as Pedroia hopped back to first base after tweaking the hamstring during Wednesday's game. More should be known about whether Pedroia will need a disabled list stint in the coming days.
