Dustin Pedroia Exits With Hand Injury

The Red Sox had plenty go right in the early innings of Monday's win against the Detroit Tigers but the victory that led the team back to .500 didn't bring a smile to the faces of everyone in Boston.

In the top of the fifth, Dustin Pedroia ranged to his left, making his signature diving play to stop a ball hit by Danny Worth from trickling into the outfield for a hit. All was seemingly well until the All-Star second baseman got to the dugout.

After receiving attention from the Sox medical staff, Pedey was removed from the game with what is being termed a "jammed thumb".

The replacement in this game was utility infielder Nick Punto, but if the second baseman requires more than a couple games to heal, Bobby V may be forced to do some more roster and lineup shuffling.
