The Boston Red Sox have only seen their captain Dustin Pedroia in action for three games so far this season and his health and fitness is starting to concern everybody around the clubhouse, and generating doubts in a lot of aspects.
According to Ian Browne of MLB.com, the second baseman is expected to have a significant knee improvement after the surgery he underwent earlier this year.
But the knee inflammation that sent him to the disabled list only after three days of action has raised concerns about if he is fit and recovered enough to face the decisive part of the season.
Pedroia has a career batting average of .300 with 724 RBIs and 921 RBIs. The 34-year veteran has three more seasons under contract.
