Pedey day to day after knee, ankle checkup

BOSTON -- Dustin Pedroia had his left knee and ankle examined at Massachusetts General Hospital during Monday's off-day, and it doesn't appear the second baseman will have to go on the 10-day disabled list.

The Red Sox released a statement declaring that Pedroia remains day to day after the Orioles' Manny Machado slid into him on Friday night.

BOSTON -- Dustin Pedroia had his left knee and ankle examined at Massachusetts General Hospital during Monday's off-day, and it doesn't appear the second baseman will have to go on the 10-day disabled list.

The Red Sox released a statement declaring that Pedroia remains day to day after the Orioles' Manny Machado slid into him on Friday night.

Pedroia didn't play on Saturday or Sunday. The Red Sox open a 10-game homestand against the Yankees on Tuesday night at Fenway Park.

Third baseman Pablo Sandoval's availability for that game is also in question, as he sprained his right knee during Sunday's 6-2 win, and he will undergo an MRI on Monday at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Meanwhile, left-hander David Price, who hasn't pitched this season due to a left elbow strain, had a productive day at Fenway on Monday, throwing a 45-pitch bullpen session. Price replicated three innings by taking a break every 15 pitches.

There is still no timetable on Price's return to action, though he might not be far from starting a Minor League rehab assignment, pending how he feels on Tuesday.

Price and the Red Sox have both continually said that the key is how he responds the day after throwing.

Before going on a rehab assignment, Price would likely face hitters in a simulated game. That could take place at Fenway Park later this week, if he progresses according to plan.
