The Boston Red Sox reportedly will place second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the disabled list Friday night. Pedroia suffered a jammed right thumb during Wednesday's game in Oakland, according to the Boston Herald and WEEI.com. Tests showed that the injury was different than the torn adductor muscle he suffered in late May. He sat out Thursday's game against the A's. The timing of the injury was not good as the Red Sox open a four-game series against the rival New York Yankees on Friday at Fenway Park. The Red Sox were planning to have Pedroia back for the crucial series. Third baseman Will Middlebrooks already is questionable with a strained hamstring. The 28-year-old missed six games last month because of the first thumb injury and reinjured it July 19 while batting, but missed one game. He was hitting .210 with a .282 on-base percentage in 26 games since the original thumb injury. Overall this season, he has a .266 batting average with six home runs with 33 RBIs.
