BOSTON -- Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia had surgery on his left foot Friday afternoon and his season is officially over.
The procedure was a success and he had a screw inserted into his foot to promote healing. Pedroia suffered a fracture to his navicular bone when he fouled a ball off his foot on June 25 in San Francisco.
He missed nearly two months and was activated on Aug. 17, but played only two games before being placed back on the DL with soreness. Drs. George Theodore and Thomas Gill performed the surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Pedroia hit .288 with 12 homers and 41 RBIs in 75 games for the Red Sox this season. It is expected that he will be fully recovered in time for spring training.
