Pedroia was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with left knee inflammation.

"There's nothing we have right now that suggests he won't be back to us", Farrell said on Saturday.

"I went through a full workday and felt fine and felt like I could do it", he said.

Hear what Farrell had to say about Pedroia's injury and what steps could be taken next in the video from "Red Sox First Pitch", presented by Men's Wearhouse, above. Obviously the irritation returned and he needs some more time at this point.

Pedroia didn't play in Boston's 5-4 loss to the New York Yankees on Friday night, the first of a pivotal three-game series. According to Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald, Farrell said that the injury is due to workload and not one incident. "He's shown a little bit of a pushback in terms of the reaction to it". "Some swelling. Some inflammation".

The 2008 American League MVP was activated from the DL on Tuesday and served as the designated hitter that day against the Tampa Bay Rays, but was left off the line up the following game. "More importantly for Pedey is get as much information to him as we can, to just allow him to get his arms around this further". The 33-year-old leads the Red Sox with a.303 batting average and a solid.378 on-base percentage this season, but will continue to be replaced in the lineup by Eduardo Nunez over the coming weeks.

He remains a unsafe hitter in 2017, posting a line of.303 with six homers and 54 RBI so far this season.

ESPN.com speculated whether it was Boston who put in a reported waiver claim on Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler, who is familiar to Sox president Dave Dombrowski.
