With Dustin Pedroia Out, Red Sox Will Have to Continue to Find Offensive Contributions The Red Sox have been slowed by injuries all year, but the latest player to go on the disabled list — Dustin Pedroia — may be the one they miss most.

“Here’s a guy who obviously hits second or third in the lineup, very productive with the home runs, driving in runs, and hitting doubles,” Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy said on Sunday’s Red Sox Gameday Live. “His defense at second base is Gold Glove-caliber, and I don’t know how you’re going to replace that and the energy he brings to the team day in and day out.”

For the Red Sox to keep up in the AL East race, Remy thinks they’re going to need more of the same from the rest of the lineup in way of others stepping up with offensive contributions.

“You’ve just gotta hope that other guys pick it up again,” he told NESN’s Tom Caron. “They’ve got to get contributions from everybody and win games in different ways.”

Remy also talked about the status of Clay Buchholz, who left Saturday’s game in the second inning with a hyperextended knee he suffered while running the bases.

“I talked to him this morning, and he was a little bit concerned about it. He said he didn’t feel good at all, so that’s not good news.”
