Pedroia on DL with a fractured foot
Sept. 4 Update - Surgery
Posted 26 June 2010 - 03:52 PM
Dustin Pedroia had a CT scan and MRI this morning and doctors discovered a non-displaced fracture of the navicular mid-foot bone in his left foot. He was placed on the disabled list.
Infielder Angel Sanchez is here and has been activated.
Doctors are reviewing the tests. Pedroia will be examined in Boston on Monday. According to Terry Francona, the medical people do not yet know the extent of the fracture or how long Pedroia will be out.
Francona said it was too early to speculate on how long Pedroia would be out.
"I don't know that we have a parameter yet," Francona said. "When we know the severity of it, then we'll have some parameters. I think anybody that's been around Dustin would bet on him being quicker than anybody humanly possible healing. But they don't know the extent of it yet."
Francona could not rule out the possibility of surgery.
Francona said Hall would play second base for now, although that is subject to change.
Dr. George Theodore, an orthopaedic surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, will examine Pedroia on Monday.
Pedroia, who is on crutches with his foot wrapped, told reporters that he was disappointed but would do all he could to get back as quickly as possible.

According to the Globe, Lowrie begins rehab assignment next week...

Anything to get Bill Hall very, very far away from 2B. Pedroia at 75% has to be a defensive upgrade. Hopefully Lowrie will get some playing time at SS over Scutaro once Pedroia is playing every day again.

EDIT: Andy Gresh will have a field day. Or at least a triple cheeseburger.

Nothing is official yet, but according to major league source Dustin Pedroia will likely shut it down for the remainder of the season. Pedroia is expected to spend the next 10 days back in a boot to stabilize the left foot that got sore again after two games.
Surgery hasn't been ruled out, but the doctors will have a better idea of whether surgery is necessary after the 10 days is up. Word is the foot is healing and not reinjured, but not healing at the pace expected.

The Red Sox second baseman will wear a boot on his foot for about seven days to stabilize the area, according to a statement released by the club yesterday. The Sox then will decide whether to continue with that non-operative course of action or have a screw surgically inserted into the broken foot.
With Pedroia experiencing discomfort after a brief return to the roster, the Sox sought second opinions from two outside doctors, Jonathan Deland and Robert Anderson, over the past couple of days, which led to this course of action.
This is not optimistic news, but I hope that they make a decision soon so he can be back in the spring ready to play.

Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is expected to have surgery to insert a screw in his left foot sometime tomorrow at Massachusetts General Hospital according to a major league source. Pedroia was examined last night by Massachusetts General Hospital foot specialist Dr. George Theodore in Baltimore. Theodore, along with Sox team physician Dr. Thomas Gill, has cared for Pedroia throughout the foot injury.
