Earlier this week Dustin Pedroia sought a second opinion on his injured foot and now Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that a “major league source” has told him the second baseman is “probably done for the year.”
According to Cafardo he’ll spend the next week or two wearing a boot to stabilize the foot and surgery remains an option if the “pace” of the healing doesn’t improve in that time.
If he’s indeed done for the season, Pedroia finishes with a .288/.367/.493 line that is just nine points of OPS below his MVP-winning mark from 2004, but he’s played in just 75 games. When he was in the lineup and the Laser Show was in full swing Boston went 45-30, compared to 28-25 (so far) without Pedroia.
