Pedroia went 5-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs against the Twins on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He'd been slumping a bit of late, going without a multi-hit game since July 5 and seeing his average dip under .300, but Pedroia bounced back and emphatically lifted it to .304 with this game. The veteran second baseman's been fully healthy this year for the first time in a couple years, and if he can stay that way, he should pile up plenty of second-half counting stats in Boston's powerful offense.

Pedroia went 3-for-6 with a homer and two RBI in Monday's 12-5 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia's renaissance season continues along. The second baseman has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games, going 18-for-54 (.333) during that span. Hitting out of the two-hole in the batting order, Pedroia's primary role is to get on base for the middle-of-the-order bats, like Xander Bogaerts and David Ortiz, to drive him in. He's filled the role quite well, getting on base at a .368 clip (highest since 2011) and scoring 52 runs (third on team).

Pedroia got on base four times Thursday against the White Sox, going 2-for-4 with a double, two walks, two RBI and a run.

EDGE Analysis

That's three consecutive two-hit games for Pedroia on the heels of a rare rest day; before his day off (well, almost off; he pinch hit) Monday, he'd been in a 1-for-16 slide. Props go to manager John Farrell for getting him a break at the right time, but many more props go to Pedroia for the season he's having, as he's carrying an OPS of .827 -- he hasn't been over .800 since 2011.

Pedroia went 2-for-5 with a run in Thursday night's loss to Baltimore. He's hit safety in 10 straight games.

EDGE Analysis

Hitting streaks are a thing for Boston's hitters -- first it was Jackie Bradley (29 games), then it was Xander Bogaerts (26 and counting) and now Pedroia's in on the act. During the run, he's hitting .419 (18-for-43) with six extra-base hits and six RBI. It's been a resurgent year for the second baseman, who's experienced injuries and a dwindling OPS over the last few seasons. At present, his .864 OPS is its highest since his MVP season of 2008.

Pedroia went 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two strikeouts Tuesday in Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia followed up Mookie Betts' leadoff homer off Kevin Gausman with a first-inning shot of his own, though his heroics would stop there while Betts went on to hit two more. It's not all rosey for the veteran second baseman, though, as his strikeout rate has risen to a career-high 14.0 percent thanks to his two subsequent whiffs.

Pedroia went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran second baseman is one of several Red Sox that has been tearing the cover off the ball, and has now hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games. He had been in somewhat of an RBI drought however, as the pair of runs he drove in Saturday were his first since May 11 versus the A's. After another month where he's approximating a .300 average, the 32-year-old is slashing .307/.370/.479 for the season.

Pedroia (hamstring) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia exited Wednesday's game with tightness in his right hamstring, but it appears to be a minor injury as he is back in the lineup Thursday. Pedroia was limited in 2015 due to a hamstring injury, so this could be a situation to keep an eye on in case it turns more severe.
