BREAKING: Dustin Pedroia Will Not Return To Red Sox During 2018 Season

The Red Sox finally confirmed what was becoming increasingly obvious to most: second-baseman Dustin Pedroia will not be returning during the 2018 season. The veteran played in just three games this year—going 1 for 13. According to manager Alex Cora, both the team and player agreed that there simply wasn't enough time left for The Laser Show to get back into playing condition before the end of the 2018 campaign. It was also revealed that The Muddy Chicken had undergone arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue from his balky knee this past July. The 35-year-old Pedroia will re-join the team and be present in the dugout for the balance of the season and the post-season.
