Pedroia (back) is in the lineup for Friday's game, batting second and playing at second base.

EDGE Analysis

After not initially appearing on the lineup card, Pedroia was added just a few hours prior to Boston's game against the Halos. Josh Rutledge will retreat to the bench in his place, while the second baseman makes his first start since Sunday after dealing with back soreness this week.

Pedroia (back) is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Angels, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team was hoping the second baseman would be good to go after four days of rest, but it appears he's still dealing with some soreness. X-rays came back negative earlier this week, so look for Pedroia to be back in the lineup as soon as he's ready. Josh Rutledge will continue filling in at the cornerstone during his absence.

Pedroia (back) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

X-rays were clean after Pedroia was hit by a pitch Sunday, but he will be forced to miss a third straight start as a result of the injury. The Red Sox are likely hoping that four days off -- the team is off Thursday -- will provide sufficient rest and allow Pedroia to return for the beginning of a seven-game homestand.

Pedroia (back) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Royals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although everything came back clean from Monday's tests, the Red Sox will continue to play things safe with the veteran second baseman and hold him out another day. Josh Rutledge will man the keystone once again. Consider Pedroia day-to-day for now.

Monday's tests confirmed Pedroia doesn't have any fractured ribs, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

This strengthens the Red Sox's stance that Pedroia's injury won't require a trip to the disabled list, though he's still experiencing swelling and pain, so he'll likely need at least a couple days to recover being returning to the lineup. While he remains day-to-day, Josh Rutledge should see time at second base in his place.

Pedroia (back) is not expected to require a trip to the disabled list to heal his back injury, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although the official X-ray results are unknown at this time, it's good to hear that the team isn't too concerned about his long-term status. Pedroia may be held out a few more days to ensure that he's fully healthy upon his return to the lineup, but it seems like this ailment is fairly minor. While he's day-to-day, Josh Rutledge seems like a good bet to see increased time at the keystone.

Pedroia (back) is not in the lineup Monday against the Royals, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia left Sunday's contest prematurely due to getting hit in the back by a pitch, and it seems like things have not gotten better overnight. Pedroia should still be considered day-to-day until more information on his ailing back is disclosed. In the meantime, Josh Rutledge will take over at second base.

Pedroia is undergoing X-rays at a Houston hospital after he was hit by a pitch in the back, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia was experiencing swelling around the area of the hit and was having trouble moving his arm. Consider him day-to-day, and questionable for Monday's game in Kansas City. Expect an update from the club before Monday's 8:15 PM start time.

Pedroia (ankle) will start at second base and bat second Wednesday against the Phillies, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia was able to play the entirety of Tuesday's 12-inning win, despite tweaking his ankle while rounding third base earlier in the contest. It appears he's not dealing with any significant swelling a day later, so the injury probably isn't anything fantasy owners need to worry about going forward.

Pedroia rolled his ankle while rounding third base Tuesday but stayed in the game, Jasono Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports. He went 2-for-6 with a run scored in Boston's 4-3 extra-inning victory over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia stayed on the ground for a few beats before he got up and walked with a slight limp back to the dugout. He stayed in the game and finished out the final two innings of Tuesday's 12-inning affair. He looked fine in the 12th inning when he initiated a 4-6-3 double play, and the Red Sox don't appear to be too concerned about the injury, but we'll want to follow up on how the ankle responds after a night of sleep.
