Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Plays five innings

Pedroia (knee) started at second base, played five innings and went 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Braves.

With a little under two weeks remaining before the start of the regular season, Pedroia still has a few milestones to hit before the Red Sox declare him ready for Opening Day. There have been no setbacks, but he hasn't played a full game yet, nor has he played in the field on back-to-back days. The Red Sox will evaluate him and provide an update on his status Sunday, according to Ian Browne of MLB.com.
