Pedroia underwent cartilage restoration in his knee at the end of the 2017 season and has played in just nine games over the past two years. In 2017, he was able to appear in just 105 games due to knee and wrist injuries. It’s clear even getting on the field has been a battle for the veteran.
A huge part of World Series titles in 2007 and 2013, Pedroia was the 2008 American League MVP, has won four Gold Gloves at second base and is a four-time All-Star. Know for his all-out play despite being just 5’9″ and 170 pounds, he has been a fan favorite since debuting in 2006.
Even Red Sox hates could appreciate Pedroia’s hustle, so hopefully he figures something out to get back on to the field.
