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

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.
