Dustin Pedroia will not report to spring training


Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke told the press today that Dustin Pedroia will not report to spring training, saying that the former MVP second baseman is still feeling soreness in his left knee.

This is not terribly surprising given the news that came out last month about Pedroia suffering “a significant setback.” Pedroia, you’ll recall, underwent “knee joint preservation” surgery last year, which is often used as an alternative to full knee replacement.

As it was, he played in only three games in 2018 and appeared in just six games in 2019, accruing just three hits in 34 plate appearances. It remains highly questionable whether he’ll ever play again.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
