Pedroia is out of the lineup Thursday against the Tigers, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia battled through illness last weekend to build on a streak of games started that will end at 10 Thursday afternoon. Over that stretch, the second baseman had been moved to the leadoff spot in the order, where he had batted in eight straight contests. The veteran will get the day off Thursday, however, as Aaron Hill leads off and Deven Marrero starts at second.

Pedroia, who left Friday night's game with flu-like symptoms, needed IV treatment following Boston's previous game, Julian Benbow of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

It looks like Pedroia started feeling the illness Thursday, so when Boston jumped out to an 8-2 lead early Friday night, manager John Farrell used the opportunity to get him more rest and IV treatment. Pedroia is day-to-day heading into Saturday night's game against Arizona.

Pedroia was removed from Friday's game against the Diamondbacks after two innings, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox jumped out to an 8-2 lead against Patrick Corbin, with Pedroia scoring two of those runs, but it's rare to see a starter pulled that early for non-injury reasons. Pedroia missed some time late last week after fouling a ball off his shin.

Pedroia was moved to the leadoff spot in Wednesday's lineup, the Providence Journal's Evan Drellich reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has been hitting second for most of the year, and now he will take over the leadoff spot that had been occupied by Mookie Betts all season. The idea is that Betts has a bit more pop than Pedroia, yet the second baseman is still very good at getting on base (.368 OBP), so this should improve the overall roster construction. Pedroia's numbers were already skewed way more toward runs (72) than RBI (49), and that trend should continue.

Pedroia lead the way against the Yankees on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and three RBI and a run scored.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia continued his very solid 2016 campaign, raising his batting average to .297 and hitting his 25th and 26th doubles of the year. His 72 runs put him on pace for 105, which would be his most since 2009. Pedroia should continue to put up big numbers hitting second in a potent Red Sox lineup that is competing in a fierce race for the AL East title.
