Boston Red Sox Second Baseman Dustin Pedroia Back In Boston For MRI On Wrist
Boston Red Sox second-baseman Dustin Pedroia is having wrist issues once again.
The Sox veteran infielder has left the team in Chicago to head back to Boston for an MRI on his left wrist which he has reportedly sprained according to the team.
The injury occurred in the first inning when Pedroia collided with White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu while running out a ground out to first.
After the game John Farrell said Pedroia was headed back to Boston to undergo an MRI. It is the same wrist the infielder underwent surgery on in 2014.
“Really no speculation on it,” Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told reporters after his team’s 5-4 loss. “We’ll just wait and see what happens. He did have an X-ray. The X-ray was negative. That was done. The X-ray was negative and now we’ll do an MRI tomorrow on the left wrist and just see what it is.”
Pedroia has been battling with nagging injuries lately with a sore left knee, along with a contusion on his left forearm.
His MRI is slated to take place on Tuesday and we expect to hear more on this shortly.
