John Farrell: Dustin Pedroia fine 'as far as I know'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) John Farrell is claiming that Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is healthy despite an 0-for-17 slump that has rival scouts concerned about his long-term stability, per WEEI.com.

"He's playing at 100 percent as far as I know," Farrell said. "I see him every day; every player has got maintenance work that they do in the training room, which he goes through. Is his style of play more taxing physically? It might be. But I know that seeing him when he gets to the ballpark ... the early work that he goes through ... has tapered off as we get deeper into the season."

Pedroia has not only slumped off, but has seemingly lost his power. His home run totals have slipped from 21 to 15 to nine to four over the last four seasons. His stat line of .269/.338/.364 is by far his worst since his rookie season of 2006.


Home runs continue to elude Dustin Pedroia


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia will open the second half with a .333 average (17 for 51) in 12 July games. Though, while he has three doubles and six RBI this month, he has no home runs.

In fact, Pedroia hasn't homered in 22 games, despite batting .326 in that span. Pedroia is batting .309 in his last 31 games, but he is slugging just .390 with one home run in that span.


Dustin Pedroia's bat waking up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia scuffled from June 1-18, recording five extra-base hits while batting .222 with a .292 on-base percentage. Since then, however, he's hit .375 over his last 16 games.

That's the fifth-best average in the majors over that stretch, notes WEEI.com. Pedroia is 13 for 28 with three walks over his last seven games, with five RBI.


Dustin Pedroia getting pitches to hit, but not capitalizing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) No hitter in the major leagues has seen a higher rate of strikes than Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, according to ESPN. Pitchers have become quite comfortable keeping pitches in the zone against Pedroia, who has failed to take advantage.

Pedroia's slugging percentage has dipped from 2011 to 2014 from .474 to .449 to. 415 to .383, which would be a career-low if maintained.

He has shown signs of life recently with three three-hit performances in the last four games. But he has just four home runs this season for the lowest-scoring team in the American League.


Dustin Pedroia claims he's hitting in bad luck


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Slumping Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia admitted frustration, but also confidence that he's hitting only in bad luck and that his fortunes will soon change.

"I feel good up there (at the plate)," he told the Boston Herald. "It's just, some balls have been caught, the balls I've driven, I've either hooked them foul or hit them to the big part of the yard at whatever field we're at. But it's going to turn. I'm confident about it."

The 30-year-old Pedroia, who has seven years remaining in the $118 million contract extension he signed last July, does not believe a wrist ailment that required a cortisone injection in April has played a role in his struggles.

Pedroia has maintained a respectable batting average, but he has just one home run and five extra-base hits since June 7. His stat line of .265/.338/.377 represents a marked drop from that he achieved in any year since 2006.


Power stroke has disappeared for Dustin Pedroia


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2014) Second baseman Dustin Pedroia cannot be cited solely as the reason for the offensive struggles of the Red Sox this season. But he is certainly a chief contributor.

Pedroia, who has been hitless in five of his last seven games, is batting .267 with just three home runs. His tater-total drop to nine last year was considered by many a fluke, but his power numbers have further fallen in 2014.

The veteran has seen his slugging percentage plummet every year from 2010 (.493) to its current career-worst .374, per the Providence Journal, which is further reporting via BrooksBaseball.net that he has particularly struggled on strikes belt-high and up.

Pedroia owned a healthy .571 slugging percentage on such pitches from 2007 to 2012, but it has dropped to .322 since the start of the 2013 season.


Dustin Pedroia slugs rare homer in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia homered for the first time in nearly a month Saturday, in an 8-6 loss to the Tigers.

Pedroia is now hitting .278/.349/.392 on the season, with 20 RBI and 35 runs scored in 59 games. 


Dustin Pedroia returns Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has returned to the team's starting lineup Sunday.

Dustin Pedroia expected back Sunday

Dustin Pedroia sitting Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

John Farrell explains unusual batting order


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) John Farrell defended his scrambled lineup Friday for his Red Sox team that owns the longest losing streak in baseball at seven games.

The starting nine features Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts in the first two spots with Dustin Pedroia batting third and David Ortiz fourth.

"(I'm) looking for added length," he told the team website. "We haven't been able to gain continuity."

Farrell also cited quality at-bats from Holt and Bogaerts recently. The former has five hits in his last nine at-bats while the latter has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games to raise his batting average from .252 to .282.


Dustin Pedroia homers, reaches base three times


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia homered, reached base three times and registered his second straight multi-hit game Sunday afternoon against the Rangers.

Pedroia doubled in the first and launched a solo home run off starter Robbie Ross in the seventh innings. He went 2 for 4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in a 5-2 victory. He is hitting .289 with two homers and 12 RBI in 152 at-bats.

Dustin Pedroia belts grand slam


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia belted a grand slam Friday against the Athletics.

Pedroia stepped into the batter's box with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. On the third pitch he saw from Ryan Cook, Pedroia took an 85 mph slider out to left for a grand slam. The play was challenged, but the ruling was eventually upheld. Pedroia also doubled, and walked twice, during the contest.

Pedroia finished the game 2 for 3, with two runs scored and four RBI. 


Finally healthy, Red Sox looking for lineup consistency


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) With the return of Shane Victorino to action Thursday, Red Sox manager John Farrell hopes he can keep his lineup consistent moving forward.

The Lineup had Dustin Pedroia leading off with Victorino behind him, a combination they will likely look to keep going moving forward. Farrell will have to wait one more day before having his full projected Opening Day lineup available, as third baseman Will Middlebrooks is expected back from the disabled list against the Blue Jays.

"I think that's the one thing I talked about a minute ago, is just the continuity and some stability with the names we anticipated breaking camp with. Three and a half weeks into the season, we're finally getting there," Farrell told MLB.com.


John Farrell to contemplate lineup possibilities


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) The impending return of Shane Victorino from the disabled list will provide John Farrell intriguing lineup options.

Victorino will almost certainly be plugged back into the second hole, but Farrell might place emerging Xander Bogaerts into the leadoff spot rather than move him down. That would result in Dustin Pedroia batting third.

That lineup would give the Red Sox a right-left-right configuration at the top of the order that Farrell covets, according to ESPN.

Bogaerts has earned consideration to take over the leadoff spot with an on-base percentage of .397.


Struggling Dustin Pedroia back Wednesday for Red Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) John Farrell has told WEEI that Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has overcome a left wrist injury enough to return to the Wednesday lineup. Pedroia will bat leadoff against the White Sox after missing the last two games.

Pedroia has struggled throughout the season. He has not achieved a multi-hit game since April 3, after which he has just seven hits in 45 at-bats. He has no home runs and just one RBI on the season. Pedroia has also yet to draw a walk.


Dustin Pedroia hopes to play Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said he received a cortisone injection Monday for the inflammation in his left wrist. He hopes to be back in the lineup Wednesday after missing a second straight start Tuesday against the White Sox.
