The Boston Red Sox have placed second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 10-day disabled list with inflammation in his left knee.
The DL stint is retroactive to July 29th and Red Sox manager John Farrell is hopeful Pedroia will be back in time for the tw0-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Aug. 8.
Farrell also revealed on Tuesday afternoon that the Red Sox second baseman has been dealing with “quite a bit of pain” but has shown improvement each day.
