Good news, Nation. As expected, Dustin Pedroia will be back in the lineup today for the Red Sox. Both initial x-rays (or fluoroscopes as John Farrell quaintly calls them) and subsequent MRIs were negative. In addition, Milton's Alex Hassan will make his major league debut today in right field. The Red Sox send Jon Lester to the mound in the final game of the Rays series. He will be opposed by former Boston hurler Erik Bedard.
