"Dustin Pedroia wrist injury not serious"
According to a just-posted story in The Boston Globe, the Red Sox may have dodged a bullet:
Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia does not have a serious injury to his left wrist, according to a baseball source.I'd love a little more detail, and obviously, if there are still tests to be done, this isn't graven in stone, but it's a positive story, and that means that there's hope...
Further tests are being done in Boston today, but Pedroia should be fine, based on the preliminary results.
UPDATE: This updated story from ESPN.com actually makes me less optimistic than I was earlier.
Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia does not have a fracture in his left wrist, a development a baseball source called "great news" on Monday afternoon.I wasn't worried about a fracture. I'm far more worried about tendon/ligament damage, or split tendon sheath. And if the "good news" is that all they've done is take an X-ray and see no fracture, well, we're a long way from out of the woods...
Another source told ESPNBoston.com earlier Monday that things looked good so far but that further tests were scheduled.
