Source: Dustin Pedroia expected to avoid disabled list

According to an industry source, an examination of the injured left wrist of Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia on Monday revealed that the 30-year-old was not suffering from a fracture. He is thus expected to avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Pedroia was a late scratch from Sunday’s game due to increasing soreness and discomfort over the course of the week following a play against the Brewers in which the second baseman was wiped out on a double play pivot. Pedroia is just 3-for-27 with five strikeouts since the Brewers series, and he’s hitting .236/.236/.291 for the season. A year after playing in a career-high 160 games — in a season where he spent the entire year playing with a torn ligament in his thumb — Pedroia had played in all 12 Red Sox games this year until the wrist injury forced him out of the lineup on Sunday.
