ANAHEIM -- Speaking during the American League All-Star media session at the Anaheim Marriott, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia said he will be getting a CT scan Friday to determine how well the broken bone in his left foot is healing.

"The biggest thing is if the bone are healing back together than I can do a lot more stuff and that will prevent it from breaking off," Pedroia said. "That's the biggest fear for me, if the bone is going to break off I'm out for year and that's a problem. But if it's not going to break off and it's going to be painful than we go play.
"That's what we're looking for. I don't know what they're looking for. I'm trying to get back in there. Guys that are hurt, we care so much it's not fun...
