Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) expects to play in Thursday's series finale with the Rockies after exiting Wednesday's tilt early, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

He was 1-for-3 prior to his exit Wednesday. (Source: Rob Bradford on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The hamstring injury does not sound serious and it looks like the Red Sox were just being cautious. But it could mean Pedroia may miss the game on Thursday as Boston has done a good job this season giving Pedroia days off and keeping him healthy.

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-4 with two runs and a walk Tuesday against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: After a couple injury plagued seasons it looks like Dustin Pedroia is back to his old self. His power and speed are down from previous years but he is hitting .301 with six homers and two steals which makes him a must own at second base for fantasy owners.

Dustin Pedroia finished 1-for-3 against Corey Kluber and the Indians on Friday night. He has a .281 batting average in May and has five extra-base hits and 12 runs scored this month. Pedroia has an .823 OPS this season.

Fantasy Impact: Even though Pedroia has gotten a hit in nearly every game, he has not had a multi-hit game since May 5, one of his two multi-hit games of the month. His consistency is impressive, but Pedroia's batting average has actually slipped from .304 to .299 over the last 10 games, even with getting a hit in nearly every game and posting runs in seven of 10 games. Pedroia walked in his only appearance against Trevor Bauer, the Indians' starter on Saturday, and has an .820 OPS at home this season.

He is always an injury risk, but while he is healthy, Pedroia is a must own and one of the top second basemen in fantasy.

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with his fourth homer of the year, a solo shot, against the White Sox on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia is the healthiest he has been in years. He is starting off 2016 strong hitting .322 with four homers and 14 RBI after Thursday's game. If Pedroia can stay healthy throughout the season, a big if, then he could be a top-five fantasy second baseman this year.

Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with two homers and five RBI to lead the Red Sox to a 9-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

Pedroia is now hitting .333 with three home runs, 12 RBI, and 17 runs scored. If there is a league he is not owned he should be picked up right away.

Dustin Pedroia's modest five-game hitting streak was snapped Monday in the team's loss to the Braves. Pedroia went 0-for-3 with a walk and strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia had been on a tear prior to Monday night's contest, producing multi-hit games in each of the last four played. His average is over .300, and he's scored 13 times in 18 games. He should continue to provide solid production as the weather warms in Boston.

Dustin Pedroia scores a run

Thu, Apr 21st 9:29am EDT
By Chris McCoy

Dustin Pedroia went 1-for-5 om Wednesday against the Rays. Pedroia's lone hit was a single, and he came around to score on a David Ortiz double. The Red Sox second baseman is now hitting .268 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Its been a bit of a slow start for Pedroia, who is slashing (.268/.317/.304 in 60 PA) compared to his career averages (.298/.364./.442). However, there is not much to be alarmed by here because Pedroia typically posts below career average numbers in April anyway. You can feel comfortable leaving him in your line-up and waiting for the calendar to change.

Multi-hit game for Dustin Pedroia

Mon, Apr 11th 10:08pm EDT
By Chris Zolli

Dustin Pedroia finished 2-for-5 with a run scored against the Orioles on Monday. Although the Red Sox lost 9-7 in their home opener, Pedroia saw his batting average jump to .321.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia now has a modest five-game hitting streak, including three multi-hit games, and the 2008 MVP has scored four runs this season. He has not provided much in the way of run production, two extra-base hits and two RBI, but he has served as a catalyst at the top of the Red Sox lineup. Injuries and inconsistency saw Pedroia's stock plummet before the 2016 season, but he could be a top-10 2B with his strong batting average and runs scored potential.

Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-5 with a single and a double against Cleveland on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia might be more name than fantasy player at this point, but he can still hit for average, and a little bit of pop. Do not expect him to light up the box scores just yet, but keep him active in all formats.

Pedroia managed only 381 at-bats in 2015 which led to a drop in most of his counting statistics outside of his 12 HR.

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia is projected to improve to 526 at-bats by Zeile. This is projected to lead to 73 runs, 60 RBI, 11 HR and a batting average of .285. If he hits those numbers, he has a chance to compete for a top-10 finish at second base. His ECR of 178 reflects the drop in numbers in 2015.


Dustin Pedroia announced Saturday at the Red Sox Winter Weekend that he plans to run more in 2016. The 32-year-old has altered his training regimen this winter in order to improve his speed and agility on the bases. (Source: MLB.com)

Fantasy Impact: Pedroia only stole two bases in an injury-shortened 2015 season and six bases in 2014. He averaged 21 stolen bases a season from 2011-13. If Pedroia can stay healthy and does improve on his steals total, he could be a 15 homer and 15 steal player in 2016.


After spending a total of 73 days on the disabled list in 2015, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is heading into the offseason fully healed. Pedroia suffered a "2 1/2 [grade tear]" of his hamstring. He finished the year slashing .291/.356/.441 which is just a hair below his career averages. (Source: Rob Bradford - WEEI.com)

Fantasy Impact: Whether its through lost games or lost production, Pedroia has not been the same type of top five fantasy second basemen he was early in his career. It always feels like the potential is there, but with Pedroia now entering his age 32 season its entirely possible that his best years are behind him. Its fair at this point to draft Pedroia outside of the top 10 at his position and hope that he puts together a healthy run and outperforms that slot.


Pedroia has only played 88 games this season but he has produced some respectable numbers when he has been out there. He is hitting .294 with 12 HR. He has scored 45 runs, although only one in his past five games.

Fantasy Impact: It is hard to get a read on what Pedroia's value should be for the future. He has been a top notch fantasy second base but he has missed at least 20 games in three of the last six seasons. If you draft him in 2016 or own him in a long term league, make sure to have a strong backup second basemen on your bench for insurance.


Pedroia went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: He is still a good fantasy option at second base despite his history of injuries.

Dustin Pedroia was 3-for-6 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Orioles.

Fantasy Impact: Since coming off the disabled list last week, Dustin Pedrioa is on fire. He is hitting .360 (9-for-25) with three doubles, a homer, three RBI and four runs scored over five games since his return.

Fantasy Impact: That date is the best case scenario for Dustin Pedroia. Do not expect the last place Red Sox to rush him back either. It is looks like he will offer very little for fantasy the rest of the season.

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) will not begin baseball activities until the end of the month, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports. (Source: Tim Britton on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Dustin Pedroia not starting baseball activities until the end of the month does not leave much playing time for Pedroia at the end of the season. It would look like the earliest he would be back after a minor league stint would be early September. This is going into fantasy playoffs. If you own Pedroia and need a roster spot it is safe to drop him.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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.
