Dustin Pedroia Heating Up Offensively For Red Sox In August (Video)

There has never been a question about Dustin Pedroia’s defense — he’s a Gold Glove-caliber second baseman — but his offense this season hasn’t been what the Boston Red Sox are used to seeing out of him.

While it’s strange to say that someone batting .281 is having an off-year at the dish, Pedroia hasn’t been as consistently good as he has been in years past, leaving some to wonder if he’s hiding another injury, as he did last season.

But Pedey has been hot in August.

Pedroia is batting .304 with 13 RBIs and three home runs in 23 games. Eleven of those have been multi-hit games.

Hear Tom Caron and Dennis Eckersley’s take on Pedroia in the video above.

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
