Tests taken Monday on the sore left wrist of Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia ruled out major structural damage. He is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday night’s series-opener against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, but ESPN’s Gordon Edes says Pedroia is aiming to return on Wednesday.

Pedroia was given a cortisone injection Monday in Boston for the painful inflammation in his left wrist.

Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and Ryan Roberts is playing third base on Tuesday.

    Get well soon! There are some players on opposing teams that I like a lot, and Pedroia is near the top of the list.
