Red Sox Dustin Pedroia Has Bone Bruise, Expected To Rejoin Team In Toronto

NEW YORK (AP) — Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has a bone bruise on his right kneecap and was out of action for Thursday night’s game at Yankee Stadium.

Pedroia was examined in Boston by team doctor Thomas Gill. The 2008 AL MVP has been bothered by a sore knee and left the team after playing in Wednesday night’s 11-6 win over New York. Manager Terry Francona had said he expected Pedroia would play Friday night at Toronto.

Red Sox shortstop Jed Lowrie returned to the lineup for the first time since Sunday. He’d been sidelined by a sore left shoulder.

Manager Terry Francona also said catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia spent the night in the hospital after feeling ill. Francona said Saltalamacchia would be available to play in an emergency in the series finale against the Yankees.
