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.
