BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox did in fact get some great news on Monday, learning that both Dustin Pedroia and Koji Uehara will avoid a stint on the disabled list.

Both players were in Boston on Monday to get their ailments examined, and both came back with no structural damage. They’ll be day-to-day as Boston opens a three-game series against the White Sox in Chicago on Tuesday.

Unfortunately for them, temperatures in Chicago are expected to be in the upper 20’s come game time.

Pedroia underwent an MRI at Massachusetts General Hospital on Monday, the team announced in a release, which revealed inflammation in his left wrist but no fractures. Pedroia was a scratch from Boston’s series finale in New York on Sunday with lingering wrist soreness he’s had since Boston’s home opener against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Uehara, who hasn’t pitched since April 9 with a sore shoulder, also underwent an MRI at MGH on Monday that revealed no structural damage in his right shoulder.

The Red Sox also announced that outfielder Shane Victorino, who started the season on the DL with a hamstring injury, is scheduled to begin a rehabilitation assignment with one of the club’€™s minor league affiliates later this week.
