It's no secret that the Red Sox have had to overcome a litany of injuries to get back to two games over the .500 mark. Dustin Pedroia's recent thumb jam just seemed like kicking a man while he's already on the ground.
However, in spite of all the bumps and bruises, the Sox have thrived since May 11, even without the roster the team envisioned in March. Currently playing without a backup infielder, the team may have to continue juggling its players and moving forward at less than full-strength.
Watch the video above to hear general manager Ben Cherington discuss what the team's plans are with Pedroia out, how fringe players have stepped up in the absence of stars, and the team's general resilience thus far.
