CHICAGO — Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia does not have a serious injury to his left wrist, and he told the Globe that he received “great news” after being examined by team doctors on Monday.

Further tests are being done in Boston today, but Pedroia should be fine based on the preliminary results, according to a major league source, and he will not be placed on the disabled list.


The Red Sox scratched Pedroia from the lineup of Sunday’s game against the Yankees and sent him back to Boston for tests. The team is off today and opens a three-game series against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Pedroia was injured during the home opener against the Milwaukee Brewers on April 4. When Carlos Gomez slid into second base to break up a double play in the ninth inning, Pedroia was upended and came down on his wrist. Pedroia is 5 for 36 at the plate since. He is hitting only .236 on the season with one RBI. He also has yet to draw a walk.

The Red Sox also sent closer Koji Uehara to Boston for an exam on his right shoulder. Uehara had a successful throwing session in New York on Monday and is expected to rejoin the team in time for Tuesday’s game.
