The Red Sox announced on Wednesday that Dustin Pedroia successfully underwent a cartilage restoration procedure to fix his left knee. In a press release, the Red Sox said that "it is anticipated Pedroia would return to games in approximately seven months". That means that Pedroia will miss at least two months of the 2018 season. Wright's procedure also was performed at the same hospital by the same surgeon.

The 34-year-old USA infielder, twice a World Series champion with the Red Sox, underwent a cartilage restoration procedure at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY.

Pedroia has four years and $56 million left on his current contract with the Red Sox.

Without Pedroia, utilityman Brock Holt would be the sensible in-house fill-in next year.

He had surgery on the left knee last offseason to fix a torn meniscus. Pedroia would go on to have a fantastic career with the Red Sox, and is a four-time All-Star, a four-time Gold Glove victor, the 2008 American League MVP and has also won two World Series with Boston in 2007 and 2013. He played in just 105 games while hitting.293 with 7 home runs in 2017.
