Instead, Pedroia -- who was elected to start at second base for the American League for the second consecutive year -- will stay behind in Boston with his wife, and Haverhill native and Tampa Bay Rays first baseman Carlos Pena will take Pedroia's spot on the AL roster.

"Obviously I need to be with my wife right now," said Pedrioa. "That's more important. I'm extremely honored to be selected by the fans and I wish I could be there. I hope everybody understands. Our organization -- Tito and everybody -- have been unbelievable....
