Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia to miss start of 2018 season

Dustin Pedroia to miss start of 2018 season after knee surgery

In a press release, the Red Sox said that "it is anticipated Pedroia would return to games in approximately seven months". He had surgery on the left knee last offseason to fix a torn meniscus.

Pedroia underwent what the Red Sox described as a cartilage restoration procedure on his left knee Wednesday. Pedroia hurt the knee again this season, and spent two different stints on the disabled list with inflammation.

The Red Sox might also now be more compelled to re-sign utility infielder Eduardo Nunez, who sparked the team after his acquisition in July until a right knee injury on September 9 effectively ended his season.

Dustin Pedroia has dealt with injury troubles over the last several seasons.

Pedroia has four years and $56 million left on his current contract with the Red Sox. He batted.293 but started only 97 games at second base, his second-lowest total since 2010.

Pedroia's left knee was operated on at the New York Hospital for Special Surgery, by Dr. Pedroia played only 105 games. Deven Marrero and Tzu-Wei Lin also are under club control for next season.
