Dustin Pedroia “probably inactive” for the rest of the season, may need surgery


During a radio interview this morning Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that second baseman Dustin Pedroia will likely be shut down for the remainder of the season due to a wrist injury.

“Probably inactive” is the exact wording Farrell used, according to Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com.

Pedroia has played through wrist pain for much of the year, but it’s led to career-worst production–including a measly .674 OPS in the second half–and the injury may require offseason surgery to fix. The last-place Red Sox have 17 games remaining.
