Dustin Pedroia scratched with soreness in left foot

Aug 19, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

Dustin Pedroia, who went 1-for-7 in his first two games back from a broken left foot, had to be scratched from Thursday’s lineup with soreness in the same area.
Jed Lowrie is filling in as the Red Sox go for a three-game sweep versus the Angels.
It’s been obvious since he returned that Pedroia is still hobbled by the foot. Fortunately, the Red Sox have a hot hitter to plug into his place. Lowrie is batting .308/.429/.538 in 52 at-bats since making his season debut last month. He’s homered in his last two appearances.
No word yet on whether Pedroia will be available off the bench. It sounds as though he’s day-to-day.

    Watch how fast the Sox will dump Pedroia if Lowrie turns out to be the real thing . Does
    Nomar , Clemens , and Pedro just to name a few ring a bell ?

    Given Saltalamacchia’s being put on the DL with a leg infection, perhaps the word “scratched” shouldn’t be used in connection with any Boston player.

    Yeah, Lowrie isn’t really a second baseman, but thanks for trying.

    Boston is cursed this year. Has to be with all these injuries. Somewhere someone is doing a number on the chest of a Jacoby Ellsbury voodoo doll and the foot of a Pedroia doll.

    “someone is doing a number on the chest of a Jacoby Ellsbury voodoo doll”
    Yeah, his name is Adrian Beltre.
