News: Pedroia had two hits Monday. Impact: Pedroia is a sizzling 14 for 30 vs. the O's. Now he faces the Bronx Bombers, who have limited him to one hit in 13 at-bats.(STATS, 11:03am)
Mon. Apr 21, 2014
News: Pedroia went 2-for-3 with two doubles in a losing effort against Baltimore on Monday. Impact: Since returning to the lineup on April 16, Pedroia has gone 9-for-25, (.360) and has pumped his average from .236 to .275. His wrist appears fine, which means Pedroia should keep contributing moving forward.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 21, 2014
News: Pedroia had two hits, a double and a run scored in Sunday's win over Baltimore. He has multiple hits in three of his last five games. Impact: Pedroia is a testament to the power of cortisone. Since getting an injection in his bothersome wrist, he's 7-for-22 with three doubles and six runs scored.(RotoWire, )
Apr 20, 2014
News: Pedroia had two hits, a double, a walk and a run scored in Saturday's win over Baltimore. Since returning from a one-game absence due to a wrist injury, the second baseman is 5-for-17 with five runs scored, two doubles, four walks and one RBI. Impact: Prior to missing that one game, Pedroia had been in a slide. Apparently, last week's cortisone injection has been a cure for his hitting ails.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 17, 2014
News: Pedroia was an effective fantasy producer Wednesday. Impact: Pedroia scored three times, walked twice and had two hits.(STATS, 5:35pm)
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: Pedroia went 2-for-6 with three runs scored and two walks Wednesday night against the White Sox. Impact: Pedroia received a cortisone shot in his ailing wrist Tuesday, and this apparently did the trick, as he was able to fill the box score Wednesday night. A routine day of rest for the every so often won't be out of the question for the veteran, but fantasy owners can likely feel comfortable with him in their lineups moving forward.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: Pedroia (wrist) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Pedroia's wrist, which he admitted has been an issue since the team's series against Milwaukee (April 4-6), was treated with a cortisone shot Tuesday. He was able to come into Tuesday's game in the ninth inning as a pinch-runner, and it seems the pain has subsided at least enough to where he can return to the lineup. That said, he is just 2-for-17 (.118 average) in his career against John Danks, Wednesday's starter for the White Sox.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: Pedroia (wrist) entered Tuesday night's game in the ninth inning as a pinch-runner. Impact: It's encouraging the injured second baseman was able to provide something for the Red Sox, but Pedroia is unlikely to be in the starting lineup for another game or two.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 16, 2014
News: While Pedroia returned to Boston's starting lineup, Mike Napoli dropped out Wednesday. Impact: Pedroia missed two starts at second base because of inflammation of the left wrist and has a cortisone shot. He was a pinch runner Tuesday, and doubled and scored in his first at-bat Wednesday. (STATS, 0:02am)
Tue. Apr 15, 2014
News: Pedroia (wrist) received a cortisone injection Tuesday, after which he displayed optimism by stating that he thinks he'll play Wednesday at the White Sox, Gordon Edes of ESPN Bostonreports. Impact: Such shots typically ease inflammation, for a time, but the second baseman expects to return to action after three days of rest. Nevertheless, Jonathan Herrera will take on the keystone and bat ninth in Tuesday's series opener.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 15, 2014
News: Pedroia (wrist) isn't in the Red Sox's lineup Tuesday versus the White Sox. Impact: While he'll likely avoid the DL, Pedroia's sore left wrist will keep him out of commission for a second game in a row. In his place, Jonathan Herrera will again man second base and bat ninth in the order.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
News: Pedroia (wrist) appears likely to avoid the DL, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Impact: All tests to this point have revealed only inflammation for Pedroia, and he's expected to join his teammates in Chicago for their upcoming series against the White Sox. Pedroia's availability for Tuesday night's series opener is unclear, however.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Apr 14, 2014
News: Pedroia's sore left wrist is expected to be OK, but additional tests are scheduled Monday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. The wrist is inflamed but not broken, CSNNE.com reports. Impact: Because the injury doesn't seem to be severe, Pedroia's owners can breath a sigh of relief, but it's unclear if he'll arrive in time for Tuesday evening's contest against the White Sox. Another absence would result in Jonathan Herrera covering second base.(RotoWire, )
Apr 13, 2014
News: Pedroia was scratched from the lineup Sunday with left wrist soreness and will travel to Boston to get it checked out Monday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. Impact: The news for Pedroia didn't seem serious at first, but the fact that he's been dealing with an issue since the Milwaukee series last weekend and will also have to get it checked out in Boston doesn't make it sound as minor as it did initially.(RotoWire, )
Apr 13, 2014
News: Pedroia was scratched from the Boston lineup Sunday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: The reason he was scratched is not given, but it's likely health-related as he was originally penciled into the starting lineup. In his absence, Jonathan Herrera will take his place at second base, batting ninth.(RotoWire, )
Apr 13, 2014
News: Pedroia went 1-for-5 with a double as the leadoff hitter in Saturday's loss to the Yankees. The hit was a gift thanks to a bad route taken by New York outfielder Alfonso Soriano. Impact: After starting the season on a six-game hitting streak, Pedroia has struggled, going 3-for-27 in the last six. With just three extra-base hits (.291 slugging) and one RBI to start the season, he hasn't provided much oomph so far.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: Pedroia is hitting leadoff Saturday against the Yankees, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com. Impact: Pedroia becomes the fourth different leadoff hitter in 12 games for the Red Sox, a team that's struggled on offense in general but particularly from atop the order. Boston's second baseman is one of two players on the roster that has yet to draw a walk this season (A.J. Pierzynski's the other).(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Pedroia was 1 for 5 on Thursday against Baltimore, "lowering" his average to .467. Impact: Pedroia's lone hit was a double, his first extra-base hit this season.(STATS, 1:59pm)
