Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia joined The Big Show for the "Laser Show" segment on Wednesday, discussing all things Red Sox. Pedroia also gave an update on his left foot, which he broke a bone in on June 25 on a play in which he fouled a ball off himself. The 2008 AL MVP missed all but two of the remaining games in the season, but on Wednesday said that after encouraging words from foot specialist Dr. George Theodore, he is on track to be at full strength in spring training.
"I saw Dr. Theodore today. The CT scan looked great, and he said I'm pretty much 99.9 precent healed," Pedroia said. "That's as close to 100 as we're going to get.
"I'm getting cleared to start jogging and build up to sprinting, and once January comes, hit it hard and get ready for the season."
In 75 games last season, Pedroia hit .288/.367/.493 with 12 homers, 41 RBI, and 53 runs. For more on the Red Sox, visit their team page at weei.com/redsox .
