David Ortiz has been emblematic of the Red Sox this season; such high hopes, but so little to show for it. The hard truth is, things may not get any better.

Report: Dustin Pedroia May Need Right Knee Surgery

Dustin Pedroia

The Red Sox improved to 7-1 against the Yankees on Wednesday night, but they may have sustained a loss of a different sort.

Dustin Pedroia is reportedly headed back to Boston to get his right knee looked at, according to the Boston Globe’s Pete Abraham and Nick Cafardo. He may need surgery that would sideline him for a month.

On Wednesday night, Yankees backup catcher Francisco Cervelli, trying to break up a double play, slid at Pedroia with his spikes up in the air. Pedroia awkwardly jumped over the slide, but aggravated a knee injury from May in the process.

If Pedroia is out, it really tests the Red Sox middle infield depth. The likely scenario would be Jed Lowrie starting at second and Marco Scutaro starting at shortstop, with Drew Sutton able to play both positions off the bench.
