President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Pedroia (knee) will not need surgery this offseason, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead, Pedroia -- who was limited to just three games in 2018 due to lingering left knee inflammation -- will continue rehabbing through the middle of December before ramping up his activities from there. The veteran second baseman is expected to start running in January, and if all goes well, the hope if that he'll bet ready for the start of the 2019 campaign.

President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said the club is "hopeful Pedroia (knee) will be ready" for spring training but admitted that he's unsure at this point, Jason Mastrodonato of The Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia only managed to play in three games for the Red Sox this season due to lingering left knee inflammation. He initially tried to return in May -- which is when he played in three contests over a four-day span -- following knee surgery in October of 2017, but then immediately suffered a setback and underwent another procedure in July to remove scar tissue. Manager Alex Cora stated in September that there wasn't enough time for Pedroia to get back into game shape and record meaningful at-bats since the minor-league season was coming to a close, which took the second baseman out of the running for a spot on the postseason roster.

Manager Alex Cora said Pedroia (knee) will not come back this season. He added that Pedroia underwent an arthroscopic surgery in late July to clean up some scar tissue, which obviously contributed to his inability to recover in time to play for Boston in 2018, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cora went on to say that it just came down to Pedroia "running out of time," but that the second baseman is okay with the decision and "will be ready for next year, no doubt about it." The previously unreported procedure forced Pedroia to essentially pause his rehab for a few weeks before resuming activities in Arizona in mid-August. He was able to start hitting and fielding during that time, but Cora noted that without the opportunity of rehabbing in minor-league games, there just wasn't a chance for Pedroia to come back and be a contributor in 2018. This will allow him to ease his way back from this surgery and return to 100 percent by spring training.

Pedroia (knee) will return to Boston on Sept. 5 before being checked out by the team Sept. 7, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pedroia has been rehabbing in Arizona, though it's unclear how close (if at all) the veteran second baseman is to returning. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski has gone on record saying that he doesn't believe Pedroia will return this season, though more should be known following his next check-up.

Pedroia (knee) is continuing to rehab in Arizona and is said to be making strides in his rehab, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While it sounds like his condition is improving, Pedroia remains without a timetable to resume baseball activities and appears unlikely to be a contributor for the Red Sox in September. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski stated back on July 30 that he doesn't anticipate Pedroia will play again in 2018, though the team hasn't officially ruled out a return for the four-time All-Star.

Pedroia (knee) was shifted to the 60-day DL on Saturday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

This doesn't impact Pedroia's timetable since he's already spent over 60 days on the DL due to a left knee injury. He's status for the rest of the year remains murky, so he should be considered out indefinitely for the time being. In a corresponding move, Ian Kinsler (hamstring) was put on the 10-day disabled list and Tony Renda was added to the active roster.

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.
