Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia underwent X-rays at a hospital in Houston after getting hit by a pitch in the seventh inning of Sunday night’s win over the Astros.

Good luck, thought: The scan was negative, and he was cleared to fly with the Red Sox to Kansas City for the Red Sox’ series against the Royals.

Manager John Farrell said after last night’s game that Pedroia began experiencing swelling and tightness around his lat and lost some range of motion, but this would now appear to be a day-to-day situation.
