Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right pinky, reports Rob Bradford of WEEI.com: "I know it's a finger, but it's your pinkie so I just taped it. It's probably more useful in your everyday life than baseball. One time I sat in a chair wrong and it shot out, or high-fiving a guy, it would get caught on his jersey and it would just shoot out. But it wouldn't really bother me when I played." The surgery was reportedly a success (aren’t they always?) and a pin will remain in Pedroia’s finger for four weeks. He will have to wear a cast through the weekend and then he’ll switch to a brace. It won’t impact the start of his 2013 season. Pedroia had been dealing with the injury for much of the second half of the season, as he sustained it during a July 29 game against the New York Yankees. Over the remainder of the year Pedroia had the injury numbed several times, but it wasn’t diagnosed as a ligament tear until the final road trip of the season. Follow @mlbinjurynews
