SECOND BASEMAN DUSTIN PEDROIA TO THE DL
Tue, 10 Jul 2012 12:34 PM EDT

Boston Red Sox 2nd baseman Dustin Pedroia insisted that the most recent injury to his right thumb is not related to the muscle he tore in the same thumb May 28.

Apparently it is worse.

Pedroia showed up at Fenway Park last Friday afternoon with a cast immobilizing the thumb. He announced he’ll need to wear it for a minimum of 2 weeks. Football lines

The Red Sox placed Pedroia on the 15-day DL before the series opener against the N.Y Yankees and recalled infielder Pedro Ciriaco from Triple-A Pawtucket.

“I’ll be back in one or two weeks,” related Pedroia, who was injured diving for a ball last Tuesday night against the Athletics in Oakland. “It’s not like I can be out all year. Guys will weather the storm. We’ll be fine.”

The Red Sox issued a statement describing Pedroia’s new injury. “Dustin Pedroia hyperextended his right thumb on July 3, 2012,” the team recounted. “He was examined by the Red Sox medical team and an MRI was performed. Dustin sustained an injury to the volar plate of his right thumb. Dustin will be treated conservatively with a brief period of immobilization. The previous injury to his right thumb adductor muscle has fully healed. This was confirmed by MRI.”

Volar plate wounds frequently are known as jammed thumbs.

Pedroia avoided a trip to the disabled list with the torn thumb muscle in May, missing just 6 games, though his performance obviously was influenced. In 26 games since returning to the lineup, Pedroia batted just .210, with only 7 extra-base hits (one home run) in 105 at-bats.

“Just frustrated,” he revealed. “I healed up from the other injury, I was just starting to feel much better and swing the bat better. I dive a single time and now this.

“I was ready to heal while I played. This is just a freak thing. I dove back for a ball and kind of landed wrong. I didn’t feel it till after the game. It’s not like I knew when it occurred. It’s a little a freak incidence.”

In Pedroia’s absence, Nick Punto was playing 2nd base and Mauro Gomez was making his 2nd start at 3rd. In 71 games in the minor leagues at third base, including just 5 since 2007, he has made 31 errors.

To create space for the 26-year-old Ciriaco on the 40-man list, the Red Sox moved reliever Rich Hill to the 60-day DL. Ciriaco was hitting .301 for Pawtucket.

Pedroia said he was expecting to be re-examined later on. Hand experts Thomas Graham in Cleveland and Donald Sheridan in Scottsdale, Arizona, will also be having a look at the results. Pedroia said he has been told surgery will not be needed.

“I don’t know who I ticked off,” he revealed. “I’m pretty frustrated by it. You work so hard in the offseason to stop an injury and get a pair freak incidences in the same thumb, it stinks.

“I’ll be fine. I may produce in a big way this season to help our team. I guarantee you guys that.”
