Pedroia played all last season with a torn ligament in his thumb.

Also, closer Koji Uehara’s shoulder stiffness has been a concern, though some of that was alleviated Sunday when he threw well on the side. Yet, he’s still going back to Boston Monday to have a medical workout to make sure there’s nothing unusual going on in his right shoulder.

Manager John Farrell said that based on Uehara’s throwing session he should be able to rejoin the team Tuesday in Chicago.

Finally, right fielder Shane Victorino (hamstring) should be ready for activation soon. He is heading out for rehab assignment in Portland Tuesday, if his medical checkup Monday goes well.
