Dustin Pedroia Returning To Hitting Basics, Aiming To Regain MVP Form

2,217

Dustin Pedroia is enjoying one of the best starts of his 11-year career, batting .333 with three home runs, 12 RBIs, six doubles and one triple through 20 games for the Boston Red Sox. His 30 hits also led the majors entering Thursday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves.

If Pedroia’s offseason adjustments weren’t obvious before Wednesday’s game, his performance made things abundantly clear: 3 for 5, two homers, one of them an opposite field shot that clanked off Pesky’s Pole, the other a shot into the Green Monster in left.

Red Sox manager John Farrell and hitting coach Chili Davis discussed Pedroia’s adjustments before Thursday’s game at Fenway Park. Check out their explanations in the video above.
