Fantasy Impact: The Red Sox have not said whether or not an injury is why Dustin Pedroia is now out of the lineup for the second straight day. Keep an eye on updates and consider Pedroia day to day for now.

 

Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-4 in Tuesday night's loss to the Astros and is hitless, going 0-for-18, since coming off the disabled list.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia who missed 22 days due to an injury and the All Star break, opted not to go out on a rehab assignment. This may not have been the best move as Pedroia looks very rusty. Look for Pedroia to snap out of the slump in a few days but for now he is not a good DFS play.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia is eligible to come off of the DL on Friday but it does not look that will happen. More likely he will be back after the All-Star break.

Dustin Pedroia left Wednesday's game against the Orioles with tightness in his right hamstring, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports (Source: Ian Browne on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia is just getting over a knee injury that caused him to miss time last week. Now he is dealing with a hamstring issue that happened rounding first base on an RBI single. Consider Pedroia day to day and he will probably miss Thursday's day game as the Red Sox usually are cautious with injuries.

Dustin Pedroia went 0-for-5 in his return to the lineup from a knee injury. Pedroia did manage to grab an RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia is back in the lineup after missing three of the last four games with his injury. Pedroia was moved to the third position in the lineup rather than his usual leadoff spot. Pedroia was on a tear at the plate before the injury and is having a great season batting .301 with nine home runs and 28 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: The word is that Dustin Pedroia is experiencing knee pain but it is not serious enough to go on the DL. Expect Pedroia to miss a couple games and hopefully it does not linger as Pedroia has been having a strong fantasy season.

Dustin Pedroia out on Tuesday

Tue, Jun 16th 2:49pm EDT
By John Aubin

Dustin Pedroia said his absence from Tuesday's lineup against the Braves is not the result of a physical issue, but Red Sox manager John Farrell said the second baseman has a sore left knee, WEEI's Rob Bradford reports. (Source: Rob Bradford on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It is hard to say who is right in the report on Dustin Pedroia but I would imagine if the Red Sox are benching one of their few hot hitters it has to be for a good reason. If it is an injury it probably isn't serious and Pedroia should be back in a day or two.

Dustin Pedroia on a hot streak

Tue, Jun 16th 1:44am EDT
By Jamie Mellor

In his current six game hitting streak, Pedroia has nine hits, five runs and four RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Do not overthink things with Pedroia. If he plays, start him. He is back to being a starter even in shallower leagues. Only caveat is make sure you have a good backup in case of injuries.

 

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in the 5-2 loss Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Do not overthink things with Pedroia. If he plays, start him. He is back to being a starter even in shallower leagues. Only caveat is make sure you have a good backup in case of injuries.

 

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk and two runs scored Thursday against Minnesota.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia has been hot the last two weeks as he is hitting 24-for-63 (.381) with three homers. Hitting atop the lineup Pedroia has had some big games and makes for a nice DFS option.

Dustin Pedroia provided all of Boston's offense out of the leadoff spot Wednesday, hitting a pair of two-run homers in a 6-4 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia has recently been moved to the leadoff spot in the order for the Red Sox. He has been hitting the ball well having gone 13-for-38 (.342) over his last nine games. Pedroia has been one of the few bright spots lately for Boston and is a good pick up right now in daily fantasy.

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-5 in the 4-2 win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia has been playing solid baseball to start the season and looks to be over the nagging injuries that have caused him to struggle the last couple of years. He already has five home runs and has driven in 15. If he can stay healthy Pedroia should have a big year.

Dustin Pedroia goes 2-for-3

Wed, May 13th 12:22pm EDT
By Chris McCoy

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with one run scored Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics. Pedroia is now batting .286 on the year.

Fantasy Impact: After several injury racked years, Dustin Pedrioa is doing his best to reassert himself as one of the top secondbasemen in the game. His five home runs have him ranked second among all secondbasemen, while his OPS of .814 is ranked ninth. He's a safe play in just about any format and figures to be one of the more consistent 2B options going forward.

Dustin Pedroia was 1-for-4 with 1 RBI on Wednesday night as the Red Sox lost to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Impact: For Pedroia with Wednesday nights RBI, it was his 12th RBI on the season, Pedroia is batting .278 with 12 RBI with 5 HR's and 13 runs scored. Solid numbers from a weaker second base position in the fantasy world. Pedroia should continue to produce for the Red Sox as offense continues to not be the teams problem.

 

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a two-run HR Wednesday night in a 7-5 loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia continues to swing a hot bat, with four HRs already this year he continues to be a must start at 2nd base in all fantasy formats.

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-3 with RBI and a run scored in a 7-1 win Monday vs the Orioles. Pedroia upped his season average to .280.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia broke out of a mini-slump Monday afternoon and continues to be a solid fantasy option at 2nd base. The pop seems to have returned to his bat early this season with three home runs and seven RBI.

Dustin Pedroia walked, singled twice, and hit a solo home run in five plate appearances in Tuesday's victory against the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia had a monster opening day for the Red Sox but has cooled down going into Tuesday's game. Pedroia looked great at the plate and looks to be fully healthy. Look for Pedroia to have a bounce back year and be a big part of the Red Sox offence.

Dustin Pedroia was held without a hit on Wednesday nights match-up vs. the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: How do you follow up a two homer-run opener? Well that is tough as Dustin Pedroia and the Red Sox found out in Game 2 of the season as Pedroia and the team battled for hits on Wednesday night. A game after having 4 home-runs the Red Sox were only able to have 3 total hits as a team. Pedroia will look to get back on track as we will not continue to see the power numbers we saw on opening day but average is where Pedroia should shine.

 

Dustin Pedroia singled and clubbed a pair of solo home runs in five trips to the plate in Monday's Opening Day win versus the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact: Dustin Pedroia looks to be completely healthy and in form to have a comeback season after battling injuries last year. He is off to an unbelievable start with a strong Opening Day game against the Phillies.

Dustin Pedrioa went 1-for-2 in Boston's second to last Spring Training game against the Twins on Friday. For the spring Pedrioa has hit .306 with 1 HR and most encouraging of all an OPS of .810.

Fantasy Impact: Pedrioa used to be good for 15-20 HR's with roughly the same amount of steals, 90+ runs and a .300 average. Unfortunately, injuries have seemingly limited his offensive production on all fronts and Pedrioa has seen a steady drop in the 2b rankings every year. If he was ever to see a rebound year 2015 would be it. If you grabbed him around his ADP of #88 or later you may be pleased with the production you get out of an otherwise shallow position.

After winning the World Series in 2013 the Red Sox squandered in 2014 in large part to a down year from their star second baseman in Dustin Pedroia. Pedroia posted a .278 batting avg., a HR total of 7 in 2014, his lowest since entering the league in 2006. Always a doubles machine Pedroia continued his doubles production in 2014 with 33 doubles.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia is coming off his "toughest" season as second baseman for the Red Sox. Although most teams would take a .278 batting avg. with 53 RBI from their second baseman, Pedroia has performed at such a high level for his career that more is expected from him. Pedroia will be protected more in the Red Sox 2015 line-up than he was in 2014. With the additions of Hanley Ramirez, Pablo Sandoval to the Red Sox line-up this will bolster the 1-6 portion of their line-up. 2015 should bring us the Dustin Pedroia of old, who will be coming into the season healthy and fresh with a better line-up around him.
