The Boston Globe 's Nick Cafardo is reporting second baseman Dustin Pedroia "will likely shut it down for the remainder of the season."
Pedroia returned from his broken foot last Tuesday, but lasted only two games before being hurt again.
He will be put in a boot for the next week and at that time will be re-evaluated, but Cafardo says a "major-league source" expects Pedroia's done for the season.
Pedroia spoke to the media before Thursday's game and said he didn't know if he needed surgery yet.
"It's OK, it's just not healing," Pedroia said (via ESPNBoston.com ). "Nothing I did to hurt it, just a bad spot. I will be fine."
