Dustin Pedroia Will Not Be Joining Red Sox Spring Training Next Week

BOSTON (CBS) — When Red Sox position players report to Fort Myers, Florida, one of the loudest voices in the locker room will not be with them. Dustin Pedroia is still sore after suffering a setback last month, and will not be with the team when spring training hits full swing on Monday.

Boston interim manager Ron Roenicke confirmed Thursday that Pedroia will not be with the team for its first full-squad workout.

“The knee is still sore, so the setback is still there. He won’t be here Monday, and he’s just going to try to evaluate what happens here,” said Roenicke. “He’s going to continue to talk to the people in Arizona and [head trainer] Brad [Pearson] to figure out what the next step is and where he goes from here.”

Pedroia has undergone three surgeries since Manny Machado slid into his knee in April 2017, first going under the knife in October 2017. The second baseman has played just nine game over the last two seasons, and most recently, had a joint preservation procedure done on his knee in August 2019.

Rather depressing to watch the end of a career in slow motion, isn’t it?
