Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia: 'I plan on playing 162' games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2015) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who is coming off September wrist surgery, told reporters he plans to play all 162 games this season, per Comcast SportsNet Northeast.

"I plan on playing 162," said Pedroia. "[Farrell] said that because my numbers were impacted [by the injury]. But I don't look at it any different. I mean, I played 178 games (in 2013) with a torn thumb. Obviously, I'm human -- the next year, you're going to have a tough time."

Pedroia has been limited the past three seasons due to a number of injuries. He injured his wrist in the home opener and wasn't the same the rest of the way. The 31-year-old Pedroia hit just .278 with seven home runs, 33 doubles and 53 RBI in 135 games last season. He has hit fewer than 10 home runs in two straight seasons.

Pedroia reiterated that he's at 100 percent to start spring training.

"I'm back...you'll see," Pedroia said. "I'm good, ready to go. If [the season] started tomorrow, I'd be good. I'm very excited. Obviously, after last year, it didn't go very well, so we've got a lot of stuff to prove.'"


Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia is 'motivated like never before'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) When asked to characterize his offseason, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said "everything is great," the Boston Herald reports.

"I'm ready," Pedroia said, "and motivated like never before."

Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated last week that Pedroia has been cleared to resume all baseball activities after having tendon release surgery on his left wrist and thumb in September.

In the middle of last January, the second baseman hadn't been cleared by doctors after undergoing surgery to repair a torn UCL in his thumb, and his hand was still not at full strength when he suffered a wrist injury in the team's home opener. He played all through the 2013 season with a thumb injury as well. Provided no setbacks occur in his preparation for the season, Pedroia appears to be the healthiest he's been in years going into the 2015 campaign.

It was then Pedroia's turn to confirm Farrell's sentiments by telling WEEI he is progressing well after undergoing surgery in September.

“If [spring training] started tomorrow, I’m ready,” Pedroia said by phone. “I’ve got all my strength back. I’m lifting like a maniac. I’m pretty excited. Last year at this time I couldn’t hit yet. It’s obvious a lot different offseason this year than last year.

“I’m full go. I’ve been throwing, hitting, taking some ground balls. I’m ready to go. … I’m done with the rehab. I haven’t missed a beat. I haven’t had my strength like normal for few years. I’m excited.”

The 31-year-old Pedroia hit just .278 with seven home runs, 33 doubles and 53 RBI in 135 games last season. He has hit fewer than 10 home runs in two straight seasons.
