Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia will apparently avoid a trip to the disabled list after an MRI taken on his ailing left wrist revealed no fractures or structural damage, MLB.com reported Monday.
Pedroia did not play in Sunday's series finale against the Yankees in New York due to the injury, instead returning to Boston for a medical exam. The four- time All-Star initially hurt the wrist during the Red Sox' home series against Milwaukee from Apr. 4-6.
The injury has caused Pedroia to struggle at the plate as of late, as he's gone just 6-for-40 over his last nine games after beginning the season on a 7- for-15 tear.
Pedroia's status for Boston's three-game set against the White Sox in Chicago, which begins Tuesday, has yet to be determined.
