Dustin Pedroia pleased with progress coming off surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has been pleased with his progress coming off mid-November thumb surgery.

"I feel great," Pedroia told WEEI. "I’ve been probably doing a little bit more than I’m supposed to do, but I feel great, man. I haven’t had a setback one time. Gripping stuff is not a problem, swinging a bat is not a problem, catching a ball is not a problem. So I’m excited, man, this is good."

Pedroia also talked about the limitations he had last season while dealing with the thumb injury.

"To be honest with you, it was just an uncomfortable feeling," he said. "I didn’t have that much grip strength. I was fine at the contact point and then the only tough part was kind of finishing your swing because [you] have to turn your follow through turn your left hand over and your thumb kind of rotates. That was one of the things that was a problem all year. … Even from the beginning, you have to figure out a way to get through it kind of and adjust on the fly, but I didn’t feel any different the first game or second game to the last game of the World Series. Obviously you get tired because you play so many games."
