Pedroia likely done for the season

pedroia injured Pedroia likely done for the season The left foot is back in the protective boot and Dustin Pedroia is likely joining Kevin Youklis in focusing on spring training and not the playoffs.  Several reports now say Pedroia’s fractured foot will require surgery and he is done for the season. Pedroia fractured the foot on June 25th, fouling a ball off his foot when the Red Sox were in San Francisco, facing the Giants.  He missed 7 weeks of action but then played in two rehab games for the Pawtucket Red Sox and returned to the Sox line up.  He played for the Sox on August 17th but two games later was taken out of the line up on the 19th because the foot was too sore to continue.

The Boston Globe reports Pedroia will keep the left foot in the protective boot for 7 days and then be evaluated by doctors.  At that time they will decide whether surgery is necessary.  That would take about 3 months to heal.
