Good news for the Red Sox: manager John Farrell said today that Dustin Pedroia has no structural damage in his left wrist.

Pedroia was sent from Chicago back to Boston for an MRI after spraining his wrist on a collision at first base with Jose Abreu during Monday’s game. While his wrist is sore, the MRI ruled out any fractures or ligament damage. The disabled list is still a possibility, but this is clearly a good outcome under the circumstances.

UPDATE: Pedroia has been placed on the DL.
