Dustin Pedroia Newsbeat

Dustin Pedroia undergoes a “knee joint preservation” procedure

The Boston Red Sox announced this afternoon that Dustin Pedroia underwent a “left knee joint preservation surgery.”  Bill Koch of the Providence Journal tweeted out an article about that procedure from the Cleveland Clinic that said the surgery is an alternative to knee replacement. Pedroia is going to attempt to rehab the knee after recovering from surgery, so it made sense that he’d choose the less-invasive procedure, but the fact that that is the choice he’s facing suggests his knee is in super bad shape.

Pedroia ‘not sure’ he can play again

Dustin Pedroia may never play professional baseball again.

The Boston Red Sox announced Pedroia was being transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday because of a setback with his surgically repaired left knee. In the afternoon, the veteran second baseman held a press conference where he said his status as a baseball player was unclear.

“I’m not sure,” he replied when asked if he thought he could play again, according to WEEI’s Rob Bradford. He added, “I’m at a point right now where I need some time. That’s what my status is.”

“My knee will never heal,” Pedroia explained further, according to MassLive’s Chris Cotillo. “We’re taking the time right now to find out if I can play again.”

Rather depressing as a way for it to all end.

Pedroia gets good news on latest knee injury

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said he received good news about the irritation in his left knee that led to his return to the 10-day injured list.

The 35-year-old was activated April 9 after starting the season on the injured list with inflammation in the knee but left Wednesday night’s game against the New York Yankees in the second inning. He was examined Thursday, when Boston put him back on the IL.

“More kind of scared me than anything,” Pedroia said before Friday’s game at Tampa Bay. “I was nervous, obviously, to feel that. We’re just going to let it calm down for a few days and then it should be all right. I hadn’t had any issues up until this point.”

Mind you, if the story goes as it has so far, that means he’ll be playing on a peg leg sometime in 2020….

Red Sox injury: Where things stand with Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia’s knee | WEEI

If the Red Sox really want to get Chavis acclimated at 2B maybe they should play him there more than half the time.

The likely short-term solution is Tzu-Wei Lin, who impressed in spring training and has gotten off to a solid start with Triple-A Pawtucket, going 5-for-9 in his last two games. Top prospect Michael Chavis has shown good power (4 homers .250 batting average, .954 OPS), but is still acclimating himself to playing the second base position.

Dustin Pedroia activated, in lineup for Red Sox home opener

After nearly a year in the wilderness, Dustin Pedroia is back. The Red Sox have activated their second baseman. He is hitting seventh and playing second base in today’s home opener against the Toronto Blue Jays

Something for those of us interested in comebacks to watch.

Red Sox: Dustin Pedroia to debut for Greenville Drive on Thursday

Dustin Pedroia wasn’t quite ready to start the 2019 MLB season. Either that or the Red Sox were scared to put him on the roster. Whatever the case, Pedroia isn’t yet on the team’s major league roster, and the Sox are currently operating without him.

However, Pedroia is seemingly making progress. He played eight innings in an extended spring training game and he will soon be suiting up for the Red Sox’ Single-A affiliate, the Greenville Drive.

Alex Cora said that Pedroia will be with the Drive for their Opening Day on Thursday. That should be a step in the right direction as he looks to return to the Red Sox’ big-league club.

Are we sure that the Greenville Drive aren’t some fusion act from the early 1970s?

The Legend of Pedey appears to be back for Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Sometimes it seems The Legend of Pedey is greater than the man himself, which is saying something and, also, how legends—and love affairs—work, except that Pedey himself is still, you know, right here.

Dustin Pedroia is 35, has played in three baseball games since the fall of ‘17, stood with his chin on the rail as the Boston Red Sox put another championship on the wall, and otherwise, until lately, has dragged his bum left knee to and from the ballpark. As it is undeniably hard for him to watch a baseball game, it is perhaps harder still to watch him watch a baseball game, like watching a greyhound shiver in a starting gate. That never opens.

Having the Red Sox win with Pedroia in a hoodie, and with them barely breaking a sweat in October, still has a one-arm-tied-behind-their-back vibe to it, if only in part because of The Legend of Pedey. (And, also, because Red Sox second basemen ranked 14th in the American League in OPS.)

“Pedey”?

Boston’s Pedroia plays 1 inning in first game since May

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Dustin Pedroia’s first game in nearly 10 months couldn’t have gone much better — even if it lasted just one inning.

Pedroia cleanly fielded a two-out grounder by Minnesota’s Jake Cave, then singled off Kohl Stewart leading off the bottom half of Boston’s 12-1 loss Thursday.

“It made me happy to run around the bases,” Pedroia said. “It was really fun out there.”
