Pedroia (knee) was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The move guarantees Pedroia won't rejoin the Red Sox for the first two months of the season, but that's hardly a surprise after it was announced he would continue recovering at home instead of reporting to spring training. The veteran second baseman has appeared in only nine games over the last two seasons and suffered another setback with his surgically-repaired left knee in January, so the Red Sox and fantasy owners alike shouldn't be depending on his contributions in 2020.

Interim manager Ron Roenicke said that Pedroia (knee) won't be reporting to spring training Monday with the rest of the Red Sox's position players, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia's availability for the start of the season was already in significant doubt after he experienced another setback with his surgically repaired left knee in January, so it's not surprising that he'll remain at home while he continues to recover. The 36-year-old has no timeline for a return, and his career could be over if he decides another arduous rehab program isn't worth the aggravation. Boston likely isn't counting on Pedroia to contribute in 2020, with the organization instead viewing Jose Peraza and Michael Chavis as the main candidates for reps at second base this season.

Pedroia recently suffered a significant setback with his left knee, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran's availability for spring training and potentially beyond is now in question. Pedroia took some time away from the game last season to consider his future after a second straight season was cut short by injuries. He's played just nine games at the big-league level over the last two years. He didn't wind up officially retiring at that time and has been attempting to make a comeback, but this latest setback could wind up forcing him to hang up his cleats for good.

Pedroia (knee) visited teammates Tuesday, hobbling on crutches after undergoing surgery on his left knee, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia, who underwent a procedure three weeks ago, said he'll remain on crutches for the next two weeks before beginning a 12-week program to strengthen his quadriceps and calf. After that, he'll have a better idea if baseball is in his future.

Pedroia underwent a left knee joint preservation procedure Tuesday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The operation was performed by Dr. Matt Provencher and was deemed successful. Pedroia, who noted earlier in the year that he was contemplating retirement, will begin his rehab in Arizona, though according to Bill Koch of The Providence Journal, he won't return this season. The veteran second baseman has appeared in just nine games over the past two years due to ongoing knee problems.

Manager Alex Cora said Sunday that there hasn't been any change in Pedroia's (knee) status since the veteran announced May 27 he was taking a break from baseball and contemplating his future in the sport, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Judging by Cora's comments, Pedroia doesn't appear to be seriously ramping up a rehab program for his surgically repaired left knee, which has limited him to nine games at the big-league level between the past two seasons. Even if Pedroia's condition displays notable improvement in the weeks to come, the prospect of an arduous rehab may not be appealing for the 35-year-old. Brock Holt has acted as Boston's primary second baseman lately, but Michael Chavis is expected to reclaim those duties once the team gets its first-base platoon of Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) and Steve Pearce (back) back from the injured list.

Pedroia (knee) is not sure if he will play baseball again and will take some time to determine his next steps, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A steady stream of knee issues has limited Pedroia to just nine games over the last two seasons. He's suffered multiple setbacks while rehabbing this year, and his knee pain has gotten to the point where it's become clear to him that he can't play every day. He does not wish to undergo surgery, meaning retirement may end up being the only path left. If this is indeed the end of the line for the 35-year-old, he'll end his 14-year career with a .299 average, 1,805 hits, 140 homers and 138 steals. He'll finish with quite the collection of hardware, including three World Series rings, one MVP, one Rookie of the Year, four All-Star appearances, four Gold Gloves and one Silver Slugger award.

Pedroia (knee) won't play any rehab games this weekend following a recent setback and will be reassessed in Boston on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A constant stream of knee issues limited the veteran to just three games last year and just six games so far this season. His updated timeline should become clearer Monday, but there's little reason to be particularly confident in any specific return date at this point.
