Dustin Pedroia has been off the disabled list all of two games. The Boston Red Sox almost certainly will monitor his workload, at least in the early stages of his return, as the second baseman never dealt with a hamstring injury before this season.

The Red Sox have a hectic schedule in the wake of Sunday’s game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim being postponed. They’ll play a doubleheader Monday, stay the night in California and then travel to Texas on Tuesday morning for the start of a three-game series against the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. That’s three games in two different time zones over less than two days.
