Pedroia: Boot off, ahead of schedule

Dustin Pedroia called into The Big Show on Wednesday to make the first of what will be a weekly offseason appearance. The 2008 AL MVP was asked about his status following the September 3 surgery on his fractured left foot.

 

"I'm good, last week I got a CT scan on my foot and it's healing better than scheduled so they took me out of the boot," said Pedroia, who broke his foot in San Francisco on June 25. "I've been out of the boot for about a week now, so I'm progressing, doing a lot more weight-bearing stuff and I feel great and I'm right on track to start my offseason workouts and be 100 percent by spring training. ... [The boot was removed] three weeks early, supposed to be in the boot for three more weeks," said Pedroia. "The healing is tremendous, everything looks great. We're all excited about it."

Report: Cubs looking at Matsuzaka

According to a tweet from Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs are "kicking around" the idea of trading outfielder Kosuke Fukudome to the Red Sox for Daisuke Matsuzaka as part of a multi-player package.

 

Fukudome will be paid $13 million in in 2011, the final year of his contract. He hit .263 with 13 home runs and 44 RBI last season in Chicago, and set a career high with an OPS of .809. Matsuzaka is scheduled to earn $10 million in both 2011 and 2012.

Pats practice: No Brady but Taylor back

FOXBORO -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not spotted at the open portion of practice on Wednesday, the first day of on-field preparation for the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday night at Heinz Field. 

 

In addition to Brady, Jarrad Page (calf), James Sanders and Myron Pryor were also absent. Running back Fred Talor (toe) and safety Patrick Chung (knee) did return to practice.

He suffered ligament and tendon injuries in his toe during the win over Buffalo on Sept. 26 and has missed the five games since. Chung injured his knee in the win over San Diego on Oct. 24 and has missed the last two games. 

 

The team practiced on the upper practice fields on Wednesday.

Fred Taylor: 'I'm actually a lot better'

FOXBORO -- The Patriots may be getting back one of their most physical player at the best time as Fred Taylor said the ligament in his injured toe is feeling a lot better. 

 

"In this particular case, it was some tendons and ligaments and lot of other stuff. I guess that's the reason for me being out the time I was out," Taylor said Wednesday before practice. "I'm actually a lot better. So, I'm looking forward to just trying to improve, continue to improve and get back, whenever that is.

 

"I don't want you guys [media] to jump too far ahead and say, 'Oh, Taylor is coming back this week.' I'm not sure. We're going to start slow and go from there and see how it feels."
