Pedroia (knee) is unsure if he'll return this season, ESPN.com reports. "I'd love to play right now, but I can't. I'm going to be back for good if I let it heal. That's it. I've got to let it heal. I can't do anything about time," Pedroia said.

EDGE Analysis

It was reported earlier in the week that Pedroia could return this season, but Thursday's comments give some pause. Pedroia said that he will know more about his outlook in "4 to 5 weeks," so his status will remain in limbo until mid-August in a best-case scenario. The Red Sox will continue to make do with Brock Holt and Eduardo Nunez at second base in the interim.

Pedroia (knee) will go to Arizona to rehab for a while, but manager Alex Cora still thinks he will be able to return in 2018, Sean McAdam of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will work on new exercises to strengthen the area around his knee, and while Cora believes Pedroia will return this season, it's possible he may just be being an optimistic manager. Consider him out indefinitely.

Manager Alex Cora said the Red Sox are preparing a new plan for Pedroia (knee), which will be reported at some point Tuesday, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia has not improved as fast as the Red Sox hoped, so the team will adjust his rehabilitation regimen. "I think it's more about what we have to avoid doing, to avoid that," Cora said. "It's not only the knee, it's the other areas that we have to make adjustments as far as training or strengthening those areas so we can avoid situations like this."

Pedroia (knee) spent some time with his surgeon while the Red Sox were in New York for a series with the Yankees, but has since returned to Boston, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia underwent test with Dr. Riley Williams III and mapped out a new treatment plan for his left knee. "A few tests, probably a few adjustments as far as the rehab," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said. At this point, Pedroia is waiting for the knee to improve so that he start rehabilitation. The club is offering no estimate for a return to the active roster.

Pedroia (knee) has yet to be cleared to resume baseball activities, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedrioia was initially expected to resumed baseball activities shortly after returning to the disabled list June 2, but the left knee inflammation stemming from October 2017 surgery. A return prior to the All-Star break -- July 16-19 -- seems to be becoming increasingly unlikely for the veteran second baseman.

Pedroia will step away from baseball activities due to the lingering inflammation in his left knee, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia was recently able to resume hitting and playing catch but will take a break from all activities for the time being to give his knee the best chance to heal. The Red Sox have yet to describe a timetable for their second baseman, but a multi-week absence isn't out of the question, especially considering the knee troubles Pedroia has dealt with in the past.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Sunday that Pedroia is still dealing with inflammation in his left knee, but noted the second baseman is feeling less pain with each passing day, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it sounds like Pedroia's condition is at least improving, he's unlikely to receive clearance for full baseball activities until the swelling in his surgically repaired knee subsides completely. Pedroia visited with his doctor in New York last week and it was determined the setback he experienced early this month wasn't related to the October procedure he required, so the Red Sox don't seem to be fearing a lengthy absence for the four-time All-Star. Pedroia has been able to resume hitting and playing catch since landing back on the disabled list, but has yet to field groundballs.

Manager Alex Cora said Friday that Pedroia still has "some inflammation in the knee," Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Soreness in Pedroia's surgically-repaired left knee but the 34-year-old right back on the DL just days after his return. Tests showed no structural damage, but it sounds like the Red Sox want to wait until the inflammation is fully gone before allowing Pedroia to ramp things up. This may be something that requires regular maintenance over the rest of the season.

Pedroia (knee) was confirmed to be dealing with left knee inflammation and could return to baseball activities in a couple days, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia underwent an MRI on Tuesday which confirmed he was dealing with inflammation from October's knee surgery. The veteran second baseman seems unlikely to be ready to return when first eligible Saturday and it's unclear whether he will require a rehab assignment, but an extended stay on the disabled list doesn't appear to be in store for the 34-year-old.

Pedroia (knee) will undergo an MRI within the next few days, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
