Good News And Bad News On Muddy Chicken's Status

Overwhelmingly, the "good" news outweighs the "bad" on Dustin Pedroia. Tests in Boston this morning confirmed that there was no structural or ligament damage to his left wrist—the same wrist operated on in 2014. However, the latest word is that—while he is re-joining the team in Chicago—he will likely be placed on the disabled list for at least two weeks. Reportedly, Pablo Sandoval will be activated from the disabled list to take Pedey's spot on the roster and play third base. It appears that Josh Rutledge will take over at second base until The Laser Show can return. Pedroia had been enjoying another solid season—hitting .292.
