UPDATE: Pedroia to DL with non-displaced fracture in foot

Jun 26, 2010, 6:31 PM EDT

UPDATE: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe hears that Pedroia may miss six weeks.

4:31 PM: Ian Browne of MLB.com reports that Dustin Pedroia is headed to the disabled list with a non-displaced fracture of
the navicular bone in his left foot
.
There’s no timetable for his return.

10:38 AM: Dustin Pedroia left Friday’s game against the Giants after fouling a ball off his left foot in the top of the third inning. According to Ian Browne of MLB.com, initial X-rays didn’t show a break, however they were inconclusive enough that Pedroia will undergo further tests on Saturday morning.

“He was X-rayed and they didn’t see any break or anything, but we’re
obviously going to get him examined a lot more tomorrow,” said Red Sox
manager Terry Francona. “I think we’ve got a 10 o’clock MRI, CT scan,
whatever it is, I don’t know. He’s having a tough time putting weight on
it. He’s really sore, you can tell.”

After the game, Pedroia spoke to reporters after the with the help of crutches and a walking boot.

“Just ice, elevate and pray,” Pedroia said. “I don’t know, man.”

The impact of losing Pedroia for a significant period of time obviously can’t be understated. The 26-year-old second baseman is batting .292/.370/.502 with 12 homers, 41 RBI, eight stolen bases, 24 doubles and 52 runs scored over the first 73 games this season. He is batting .374 this month and just had his first career three-homer game against the Rockies on Thursday.

Look for the Red Sox to add an extra infielder before Saturday’s game, while Bill Hall will likely fill in at second base.

    Hey Red Sox fans,
    How do you think all of us Angels fans are feelin? I mean we lost Kendry for the rest of the season, so it could be worse right? And we gambled on Brandon Wood being worth a stink, and look what happened there? Things could be dimmer my friends. You still have a good team, the Angels are a lot more questionable this year with the bull pen blowing games that should have been won like last nites game against the Rockies..what a joke. Anyways, lets just keep the Yankees out of the play offs PLEASE!!!! As big of rivals as we are (LA vs Boston) Id still rather see you doing better than the Yankees..blah!!

    I was hoping after the three home run night they would have put Pedroia in the home run derby. Hearing him telling Howard and Fielder he was going to kick their ass would have made my day.
