Pedroia will head to the 15 day DL as a result of his nagging thumb injury. Pedroia, who has been playing with a torn abductor muscle in his thumb, has been struggling mightily over the past month. Pedroia is the 22nd Red Sox player to land on the DL in 2012.
Pedro Ciriaco is not in tonight’s lineup for the Pawtucket Red Sox and is presumed to be Pedroia’s replacement during his DL stint. Luckily, the All Star Game will limit the number of games Perdoia will miss during his recovery.
