Red Sox stalwart Pedroia has knee surgery, will be out for at least 7 months

Boston Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia sits alone in the dugout after the Houston Astros eliminated the Red Sox 5-4 in Game 4 of the American League Division Series Monday Oct. 9 2017 in Boston

Dustin Pedroia underwent cartilage restoration surgery on his left knee this morning, reports Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe.

If it's October, it must mean Dustin Pedroia is having surgery to fix his latest injury.

The Red Sox might also now be more compelled to re-sign utility infielder Eduardo Nunez, who sparked the team after his acquisition in July until a right knee injury on September 9 effectively ended his season.

He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last October.

Consolidated (NASDAQ:COKE) Moves -0.20% For The Week
Trading was light with 8,233 shares changing hands on Tuesday. $137,627 worth of stock was sold by Cohen Andre on Tuesday, May 23. The company reported $0.59 EPS for the quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.57 by $0.02.

With Pedroia ailing, Boston never seemed to be the cohesive, powerful unit it was predicted to be, and the Red Sox were knocked out of the ALDS by the Astros in four games. He will make $16 million next year, $15 million in 2019, $13 million in 2020 and $12 million in 2021.

From the start of '17, Pedroia's knee was a constant issue. The surgery was performed by Dr. Pedroia played only 105 games.

The Red Sox said Pedroia is expected to return to games in approximately seven months.

With Pedroia likely to be sidelined until at least May, utility infielder Brock Holt represents the Red Sox's best internal option to play second base.
