According to a statement from the team, there’s good news concerning Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who found out the injured wrist that kept him out of Sunday’s loss to the New York Yankees is not fractured.
According to the team, an MRI revealed inflammation but no breaks or structural damage in the wrist. Pedroia was reportedly injured during a slide into second base April 4 against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Since hurting the wrist, Pedroia has gone 6-for-40 with two doubles.
The team also announced that closer Koji Uehara underwent an MRI and has no structural damage in his right shoulder. Uehara reportedly felt stiffness in the shoulder and hasn’t pitched since April 9.
