Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia leaves game

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (shin) left the game Saturday, Aug. 17, against the New York Yankees due to a bruised left shin. He fouled a ball off his leg in the eighth inning. Manager John Farrell said a fluoroscan on Pedroia's leg did not reveal a fracture, and no additional x-rays have been scheduled. "He's sore," Farrell said. "We'll check in the morning, but at this point, we don't anticipate him missing any time."

Fantasy Tip: If Pedroia is in the lineup for the nationally televised game Sunday night, keep him in the active fantasy lineup for the upcoming week.
