Dustin Pedroia slated to rejoin Red Sox lineup next Tuesday

Aug 10, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

Dustin Pedroia worked out in Toronto prior to tonight’s game against the Blue Jays and Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports that he’s now “on track to rejoin the Red Sox one week from today.”
Here’s more from Abraham:

He will start running the bases tomorrow and is scheduled for an exam on Friday back in Boston. If cleared, he would play rehab games on Saturday and Sunday and play for the Sox on Tuesday at home against the Angels.

Pedroia was initially given a 4-6 week recovery timetable after fracturing his left foot on June 25 and a Tuesday return would get him back in the lineup 52 days later. Jed Lowrie and Bill Hall have been splitting time at second base filling in for Pedroia and the Red Sox are 20-18 without him in the lineup.

    Is he going to take grounders from his knees when he comes back? You know, just to keep the image up?

    Who really cares? I’ve said this before , while a good player , he can’t stand next to Utley or Cano .(not necessarily in that order) Again he’s a good second baseman , but I feel he gets more credit than he’s due because of his stature .He doesn’t have the range or the arm of Cano . Md23Rewls …. The first time I saw him I thought he was on his knees, whats changed . I’m just sayin .
