Pedroia underwent minor surgery on his left knee and is expected to be ready for spring training, the Boston Globe's Pete Abraham reports.

EDGE Analysis

He had a left knee arthroscopy (partial medial meniscectomy, chondroplasty) Thursday to treat an injury he suffered in mid-September. Pedroia had his best offensive season since 2011, finishing fourth in runs (105) and fifth in batting average (.318) among qualified second basemen.

Pedroia went 3-for-5 with a run scored in Friday night's win over Toronto. The hits give him 201 for the season, the first time he's crossed the 200-hit threshold since his MVP season of 2008.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia is enjoying a very productive age-32 season that's been lost among many seasonal story lines -- David Ortiz's retirement tour, David Price's first-half struggles, the shoddy back end of the starting rotation, Steven Wright's All-Star season, the development of Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts, a sometimes atrocious bullpen, and the questionable in-game decisions of manager John Farrell. Boston's second basemen has been rock through it all, never hitting any lower than .294 in a month and ranking sixth at his position with a 5.3 WAR.

Pedroia is out of the lineup for Thursday's matchup against the Yankees, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday will be just the second game that Pedroia has sat out during the month of September. However, now that the Red Sox have clinched the AL East, they can afford to let the 33-year-old have a day off as they prepare for their playoff run. Deven Marrero will make a rare appearance and start in place of Pedroia at second base.

Pedroia went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored in Boston's 3-2 win over the Rays in extra innings Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After an 0-for-17 stretch, Pedroia has four hits in his last seven at-bats and has been integral in Boston wins over Tampa Bay on Saturday and Sunday. His grand slam Saturday proved to the winning hit in a comeback victory. Then on Sunday, he scored an improbable winning run, coming home from first base on David Ortiz's double. The throw had beat Pedroia by a large margin, but he was able to pull up, work around the catcher, and made a couple of hops to elude an attempted tag before eventually touching the plate with his hand as the ball came out the catcher's mitt.

Pedroia went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead grand slam in Saturday's 6-4 victory over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran second baseman was the hero Saturday, smacking a Danny Farquhar offering in the seventh a distance of 402 feet to left center and plating Brock Holt, Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Sandy Leon. The homer gave the Red Sox a 6-3 lead they wouldn't relinquish and was only Pedroia's second round-tripper of September. His production Saturday also snapped the 0-for-13 stretch that Pedroia had entered the contest with, and brought his season line to a stellar .318/.377/.447.

Pedroia (knee) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia was held out Tuesday due to soreness in his left knee, but the issue was never considered to be something that would keep him out for more than a day or two. The veteran will return to his usual spot at second base, and he'll hit atop the order against the Orioles' Ubaldo Jimenez.
