Pedroia underwent surgery to repair cartilage in his left knee Wednesday, and will likely be out until the end of May in the 2018 season, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Red Sox stated in a press release that an estimate for Pedroia to return to game action would come in approximately seven months. Dr. Riley Williams performed the "cartilage restoration procedure" on Pedroia's knee, which had clearly been hampering the second baseman over the last month. As the offseason moves along, there is sure to be more updates on Pedroia's status, including any changes to this initial timetable.

Pedroia underwent surgery on his left knee Wednesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia had been weighing his options in the past couple weeks, but finally decided to move forward with the surgical route after meeting with a few specialists. This procedure could very well impact the second baseman's availability for the start of the 2018 season, but it appears to early to gauge at this point in time. Pedroia actually underwent a procedure almost a year ago due to meniscus damage in the same knee, which makes this injury all the more concerning. There will be updates throughout the winter on his status, to go along with a better idea of a timetable for his recovery.

Pedroia will decide within the next few days whether he will undergo surgery on his left knee, ESPN.com's Scott Lauber reports. "If you were to get it fixed, the recovery is a long time," Pedroia said last week. "So, I have a lot of things to weigh with the doctors and figure it out."

EDGE Analysis

He has already seen a couple specialists to gauge his options, and we should know which route he will take later this week. It sounds like the surgery in question could affect his availability for the start of 2018, so this could be a noteworthy offseason development. Brock Holt is the top internal option to plug a hole at the keystone if Pedroia ends up missing time next season.

Pedroia will see two specialists later this week to receive further examination on his injured knee, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears as though Pedroia will see a specialist in New York on Wednesday, and follow that up with another evaluation to determine whether he will indeed need surgery on his knee. The second baseman's timetable will become easier to gauge once he decides the best way to heal this lingering injury, but at the moment, it's expected that he will be ready for spring training.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia has been dealing with a lingering knee issue since June, and he acknowledged during the season that -- while he was able to play through the pain -- it may require offseason surgery to repair. There should be a clearer idea regarding his status after he's evaluated Tuesday.

Pedroia (knee) is in the lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS against the Astros on Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia returns to the lineup after sitting out the last couple regular-season contests while he continued to nurse a lingering knee ailment. He will bat in the sixth spot and man the keystone for the opening game as the club goes up against right-hander Justin Verlander. After a hot spurt to start September, Pedroia has since cooled off, and is just 3-for-36 at the dish since Sept. 15.

Pedroia (knee) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia was scratched from Saturday's lineup as a precautionary measure due to wet field conditions. Pedroia missed nearly all of August to a knee injury that has since lingered. Boston will opt to start Brock Holt at second base again Sunday so that Pedroia can focus on making sure he's ready for the team's upcoming playoff series against the Astros.

Pedroia was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup ahead of Boston's game against the Astros, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia is likely out of the lineup due to knee soreness that he's been dealing with since last weekend, although the club stated that they are holding him out due to the wet field conditions, strictly as a precautionary measure. The second baseman missed almost all of August while recovering from a knee problem, which makes this lingering issue a little concerning. He should be considered day-to-day ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale, although manager John Farrell could hold him out of the lineup if Boston has the division title wrapped up by that time. In his place, Brock Holt will draw the start at the keystone, and bat eighth in the order.

Pedroia was back in the lineup Wednesday and went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Boston's 10-7 win over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia played the field after getting a day off Tuesday to rest a problematic left knee. The Red Sox still haven't clinched the AL East, so they head into a four-game set against the Astros with something on the line. They'll be smart with Pedroia, but they don't have the luxury of giving him a long stretch of time off.

Pedroia is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia will start on the bench for a second straight contest and the third time in four games. He experienced some renewed knee soreness over the weekend, and while he was able to play nine innings Sunday, he hasn't started either of the previous two games, indicating he may still be managing some pain. He'll remain a day-to-day case; Deven Marrero will draw another start at the keystone in his place.
