Dustin Pedroia's wrist injury deemed not serious


Fans of the Boston Red Sox can breathe a sigh of relief today as the wrist injury suffered to second baseman Dustin Pedroia is being deemed not serious, this according to Pete Abraham.

Pedroia suffered the injury earlier this month against the Milwaukee Brewers though has struggled offensively since suffering the injury. The troubles forced the Red Sox to send Pedrioa back to Boston on Monday for tests, but it appears everything is structurally sound.

The Red Sox have not placed Pedroia on the disabled list and the hope is that they’ll be able to avoid such, especially since he’s been playing through the injury and he can’t be retroactively placed on the DL.

Boston is set to open a three-game set against the Chicago White Sox in the Windy City on Tuesday, but Pedroia’s status for the series has yet to be determined.

The hope is he’ll be available for Tuesday evening’s tilt.

    His struggles offensively didn’t force the Red Sox back to Boston for tests. It was him telling the mgr. that his wrist was in pain and he couldn’t swing the bat.
    Additional tests being taken tells me no one knows the severity of his wrist “soreness”.
    I’m not sold that he’s fine.
