Pedroia: Foot 'feels terrible'

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has been pulled from the starting lineup on Thursday due to a sore left foot. Jed Lowrie will replace him, playing second base and hitting second in the batting order.

 

Pedroia returned Tuesday from a broken bone in his left foot suffered in late June. His rehab consisted of just two games on Saturday and Sunday for Triple-A Pawtucket. Pedroia was told to expect soreness upon his return to the lineup, and following Wednesday night's game, he was sleepless due to discomfort in the appendage, at the site of the fracture. He showed up at Fenway Park on Thursday and took batting practice, but the pain in his foot as he ran the bases convinced the Sox to give the second baseman the night off.

Salty hospitalized with leg infection

What began as a routine check-up ended up in hospitalization for Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia as he is being treated at Massachusetts General for an infection to his lower right leg. Saltalamacchia, who was immediately placed on the 15-day disabled list, was admitted to the hospital and remained there Thursday, being treated with antibiotics while he and the team wait on test results to come back. 

 

"[Wednesday] his right lower leg was sore so we took him over to MGH to get him looked at," Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. "We thought it was going to be a quick look-at and come back. An hour turned into two and then three. He wound getting back right about game-time. He's got an infection in his lower right leg and I believe they've eliminated MRSA [bacteria infection]. They're waiting on some of the blood tests to come back on the staph." 

 

Francona, who is a sponsor of the...

Saltalamacchia to DL, Brown recalled

Saltalamacchia, who was acquired from Texas at the trade deadline in exchange for Chris McGuinness, Ramon Mendez, and Michael Thomas, has hit .273/.285/.455 with one run batted in in five games this season.
