Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia blasts two home runs on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia did his best to get his team a win, but it was not enough as the Twins won 6-4, completing the three-game sweep. 

Pedroia belted two, two-run home runs off starter Phil Hughes, giving him seven longballs on the season. The home runs were his only hits on the afternoon, as he extended his current hitting streak to seven games.

"Pedey today is the one boost for us, [the guy] who comes up every day, shows up ready to compete," manager John Farrell said, per MLB.com.

During the streak, Pedroia's batting average has risen from .270 to its current .290 clip.


Red Sox's John Farrell shuffles lineup before facing Angels


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to shake things up against the Angels, he did just that prior to Saturday's game, per The Boston Herald.

Farrell slotted second baseman Dustin Pedroia into the leadoff spot, inserted his Triple-A call up Rusney Castillo to play centerfield and dropped David Ortiz to the cleanup spot.

Hanley Ramirez, who was nursing his left hand after being hit by a pitch on Friday, is also back in the lineup. Shane Victorino will hit second in the lineup after missing two games with a sore calf.

The Sox (19-23) are currently in fourth place in the American League East Division.


Red Sox 2B Pedroia shines in loss to Angels


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia continued his hot-streak at the plate despite his team's 12-5 loss to the Angels on Friday.

Pedroia went 3 for 5 with an RBI in the loss. His last six games have been stellar, hitting .296/.321/.407 with eight hits and three doubles in 28 at-bats.


Dustin Pedroia, Hanley Ramirez searching for answers at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and left fielder Hanley Ramirez are looking for a spark on offense after another week of struggling at the plate, according to MLB.com.

Pedroia has seen his average drop 23 points from .292 to .269 since the beginning of May, with just two extra-base hits. 

"A little bit [surprising], but we will [hit]," said Pedroia. "You can't get frustrated. We had some good at-bats. We hit the ball hard. We just didn't get any hits. Didn't put it all together that one inning. The guy made a great play on me. If that gets through, it's a hit. Then we've got something going. We just haven't found a way to get that big hit and extend innings, but it's going to come."

Ramirez is down to .216 with no home runs since running into the left field wall in Boston trying to make a catch. 

"I mean, we haven't had back-to-back games where we just go, and get going," said Ramirez. "The whole lineup. That's what we need. All the way from the top, all the way to the bottom. It is what it is. We haven't done that and we have to start doing it. Our pitching staff is doing pretty good right now and that's baseball. We just have to try to understand ways to stay patient. Keep the things going at the same time -- offense and defense."

Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia remains upbeat coming off wrist surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who is coming off wrist surgery, said he is able to swing a bat with full confidence and hasn't had that feeling since the 2011 season, according to WEEI.com.

“I feel normal,” he said. “I can tell just picking up a bat my hand strength is back. That’s the most important part to me. When you grab a bat, how does it feel? Can you manipulate where you want to hit the ball? It’s all back.

“I knew before I got here. You could tell. Balls come off the bat different. It sounds different. If I’m fooled and I’m out in front I had the strength to flip it the other way or still turn on it. Those are the things I couldn’t do. My swing is normal. My follow through is normal. There’s finish.”

Pedroia has hit just 16 home runs the last two seasons while dealing with thumb and wrist injuries. However, Pedroia said he will gladly sacrifice power if that means another World Series win for Boston.

“I don’t care. Numbers are numbers,” he said. “We’re here to win the World Series. I don’t care about any of that. If people don’t know that by now. We won the World Series and I hit nine home runs and everyone said I lost my power. Well, I’ll lose my power if I win the World Series. What is everyone’s job here? Win. We don’t give a crap about anything else.”


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.

“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.
