    Dustin Pedroia (knee) officially announced his retirement Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.Persistent knee troubles made for an unfortunate end to an otherwise excellent career, with Pedroia appearing in just nine games over the last three seasons. He'll retire as a two-time World Series champion, a four-time All Star, a former Rookie of the Year and a former MVP. He'll finish his career with a .299/.365/.439 slash line to go along with his 1,805 hits, 140 homers and 138 steals.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Still no comeback plans

    Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not planning a comeback, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.The Boston Red Sox and Pedroia are in a bit of an awkward situation. The highly-respected veteran is still under contract for another season and is taking up a spot on the team's 40-man roster, forcing Boston to drop other players to complete their offseason moves. Chronic knee troubles have limited him to a total of just nine games over the last three years, however, causing him to step away from the team in May of 2019. There's been no resolution to his situation thus far, but with the 37-year-old seemingly no closer to contemplating a return to action, one could be coming soon.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Not ready to stage comeback

    Manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that Dustin Pedroia (knee) is "not at a point where he's thinking about trying to be ready" to resume training with the Boston Red Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.The Red Sox won't be allowed to get together for workouts until Major League Baseball clears them to do so, but based on Roenicke's comments, it doesn't sound as though Pedroia is a serious candidate to rejoin Boston when training resumes. After appearing in just nine MLB games since 2018 while contending with multiple setbacks with his surgically repaired left knee, the 36-year-old Pedroia looks increasingly more likely to retire rather than resuming his playing career.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Moves to 60-day IL

    Dustin Pedroia (knee) was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.The move guarantees Pedroia won't rejoin the Boston Red Sox for the first two months of the season, but that's hardly a surprise after it was announced he would continue recovering at home instead of reporting to spring training. The veteran second baseman has appeared in only nine games over the last two seasons and suffered another setback with his surgically-repaired left knee in January, so the Red Sox and fantasy owners alike shouldn't be depending on his contributions in 2020.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Staying home for spring training

    Interim manager Ron Roenicke said that Dustin Pedroia (knee) won't be reporting to spring training Monday with the rest of the Boston Red Sox's position players, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.Pedroia's availability for the start of the season was already in significant doubt after he experienced another setback with his surgically repaired left knee in January, so it's not surprising that he'll remain at home while he continues to recover. The 36-year-old has no timeline for a return, and his career could be over if he decides another arduous rehab program isn't worth the aggravation. Boston likely isn't counting on Pedroia to contribute in 2020, with the organization instead viewing Jose Peraza and Michael Chavis as the main candidates for reps at second base this season.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Suffers another setback

    Dustin Pedroia recently suffered a significant setback with his left knee, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.The veteran's availability for spring training and potentially beyond is now in question. Pedroia took some time away from the game last season to consider his future after a second straight season was cut short by injuries. He's played just nine games at the big-league level over the last two years. He didn't wind up officially retiring at that time and has been attempting to make a comeback, but this latest setback could wind up forcing him to hang up his cleats for good.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Undergoes knee surgery

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Stuck in holding pattern

    Manager Alex Cora said Sunday that there hasn't been any change in Dustin Pedroia's (knee) status since the veteran announced May 27 he was taking a break from baseball and contemplating his future in the sport, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.Judging by Cora's comments, Pedroia doesn't appear to be seriously ramping up a rehab program for his surgically repaired left knee, which has limited him to nine games at the big-league level between the past two seasons. Even if Pedroia's condition displays notable improvement in the weeks to come, the prospect of an arduous rehab may not be appealing for the 35-year-old. Brock Holt has acted as Boston's primary second baseman lately, but Michael Chavis is expected to reclaim those duties once the team gets its first-base platoon of Mitch Moreland (quadriceps) and Steve Pearce (back) back from the injured list.

    Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Contemplating retirement

    Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not sure if he will play baseball again and will take some time to determine his next steps, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.A steady stream of knee issues has limited Pedroia to just nine games over the last two seasons. He's suffered multiple setbacks while rehabbing this year, and his knee pain has gotten to the point where it's become clear to him that he can't play every day. He does not wish to undergo surgery, meaning retirement may end up being the only path left. If this is indeed the end of the line for the 35-year-old, he'll end his 14-year career with a .299 average, 1,805 hits, 140 homers and 138 steals. He'll finish with quite the collection of hardware, including three World Series rings, one MVP, one Rookie of the Year, four All-Star appearances, four Gold Gloves and one Silver Slugger award.
