From beat writer Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal comes word that Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is scheduled to undergo minor surgery Friday on his left foot.

The procedure, which has been scheduled since the start of spring training, will involve the removal of a stabilizing screw that was inserted into Pedroia’s foot 13 months ago. He should be recovered within a couple of weeks and won’t need to make alterations to his regular offseason training regimen.

Pedroia, 28, posted a fantastic .307/.387/.474 batting line with 21 home runs, 31 doubles, three triples, 91 RBI and 26 stolen bases across 731 plate appearances this season for the third-place Sawx. The home run, RBI and stolen base totals were all career highs.

      I have no doubt he’ll be at 100%. He had a great year.

      The heart and soul of that team…unfortunately, many of his teammates don’t share have his guts, grinding spirit or love of the game.
