Pin placed in Pedroia's finger for four weeks

Surgery to repair a torn ligament in Dustin Pedroia's right pinky was successful Wednesday, with Dr. Donald Sheridan placing a pin in the injured finger. The pin will remain in Pedroia's finger for four weeks, with the second baseman having to wear a cast through the weekend before switching to a brace.

Pedroia injured the finger while fielding a seven-inning ground ball of the bat of the Yankees Mark Teixeira during a Red Sox July 29 game at Yankee Stadium.

"It took kind of a bad hop. It happened so fast," said Pedroia, who explained his right hand was caught in his glove while fielding the grounder. "I threw it to first and my pinkie was just huge. At first they thought I broke it.

"I know it's a finger, but it's your pinkie so I just taped it. It's probably more useful in your everyday life than baseball. One time I sat in a chair wrong and it shot out, or high-fiving a guy, it would get caught on his jersey and it would just shoot out. But it wouldn't really bother me when I played."

Pedroia explained that he had the injury "numbed a couple of times," but didn't determine that it was a ligament tear until he went an MRI just before the final road trip of the season. He would miss just three of the final 60 games of the season after sustaining the tear, going on to hit .324 with a .904 OPS during the stretch.

"It was my top hand. If it was my bottom hand pinkie it would have been difficult. Your top hand you never really think about it because you're pinkie is barely on it. It wasn't that bad," he explained. "It was still bugging me and it was coming out here and there. I didn't want to MRI when it happened because I would have played with it regardless of what they said."

Pedroia also reported that his left ring finger, which suffered an avulsion fracture on the Sunday of the regular season, was progressing well.

"It's good," he said of the broken finger. "It will probably take another week and it will be healed."
