Muddy Chicken Back On The DL With Hamstring

Dustin Pedroia just pushed it too much, too soon. As a result, The Laser Show is back on the 15-day disabled list with the same hamstring injury that landed him there originally. Pedroia refused a rehab assignment to the minor leagues, which—in retrospect—may have been the more prudent route. Said Manager John Farrell, "I don't have the exact time frame. We felt like a three-week shut-down period was going to suffice, but I can't say it is going to be an additional three weeks. I don't have that time frame right now." So, Boston will have to contend with his loss over the next few weeks—along with a likely rehab stint (no matter what he wants).
