Dustin Pedroia will report to Red Sox camp late

By WEEI 93.7

Dustin Pedroia will not be at camp for the Red Sox’ first full-team workout on Monday due to the setback he had with his left knee.

Ron Roenicke got an update from Pedroia on Wednesday. Prior to their conversation, the Red Sox interim manager was unsure if the second baseman would be with the Red Sox for the first full-team workout.

Pedroia continues to deal with discomfort.

“The knee is still sore,” Roenicke said. “So, the setback is still there. He won’t be here Monday.

“He’s just going to try to evaluate what happens here. He’s going to continue to talk to the people in Arizona and (Red Sox head athletic trainer) Brad (Pearson) here to figure out what the next step is and where he goes from it.”

Pedroia only played in six games for the Red Sox throughout 2019, along with 14 at the minor league level.
