Red Sox stalwart Pedroia has knee surgery, will be out for at least 7 months

Boston Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia sits alone in the dugout after the Houston Astros eliminated the Red Sox 5-4 in Game 4 of the American League Division Series Monday Oct. 9 2017 in Boston

He had surgery on the left knee last offseason to fix a torn meniscus.

Wednesday afternoon, the Red Sox announced Pedroia underwent a "successful cartilage restoration" procedure on his left knee, and that "it is anticipated that Pedroia would return to games in approximately seven months".

Pedroia made two trips to the disabled list (29 days combined) during 2017 because of left knee inflammation.

The 34-year old second baseman hit.293 this season, with seven home runs and 62 RBI, and helped lead the Red Sox to a American League East division title.

She was coming forward now, in part, inspired by the other accusers of Weinstein, he said, "but there were other factors as well". When she auditioned for "The Mirror Has Two Faces", she said Streisand told her it was "disgusting" she talked to the press.

Dustin Pedroia has dealt with injury troubles over the last several seasons.

With Pedroia ailing, Boston never seemed to be the cohesive, powerful unit it was predicted to be, and the Red Sox were knocked out of the ALDS by the Astros in four games.

The Red Sox described the surgery, performed in NY, as "cartilage restoration".

From the start of '17, Pedroia's knee was a constant issue. Marco Hernandez is expected to be ready to play after missing most of this season due to shoulder surgery.
