Laser show warning: Dustin Pedroia activated

Aug 17, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

Big day for previously injured second basemen: the Red Sox have activated Dustin Pedroia from the 15-day disabled list.

Pedroia has been out since
late June with a non-displaced fracture in his foot. He was hitting .292/.370/.502 with 12 home runs, 41 RBI and eight stolen
bases at the time of his injury.  In that time the Sox have gone from being at the top of the wild card standings — and a mere game out of first place — to being one game back to today’s five and a half.  They need their little guy.

Bonus: he learned how to take grounders from his knees while he was rehabbing, so he’s likely far more versatile now than he’s ever been!

    It’s good the Red Sox got their Nick Swisher back.

    How is he Nick Swisher? If anything, he’s Derek Jeter.

    From the Yankees, Nick Swisher would be most likely to make the ‘laser show’ comment. Derek Jeter might be the least likely.
