Pedroia will decide within the next few days whether he will undergo surgery on his left knee, ESPN.com's Scott Lauber reports. "If you were to get it fixed, the recovery is a long time," Pedroia said last week. "So, I have a lot of things to weigh with the doctors and figure it out."
He has already seen a couple specialists to gauge his options, and we should know which route he will take later this week. It sounds like the surgery in question could affect his availability for the start of 2018, so this could be a noteworthy offseason development. Brock Holt is the top internal option to plug a hole at the keystone if Pedroia ends up missing time next season.
Pedroia will see two specialists later this week to receive further examination on his injured knee, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.
It appears as though Pedroia will see a specialist in New York on Wednesday, and follow that up with another evaluation to determine whether he will indeed need surgery on his knee. The second baseman's timetable will become easier to gauge once he decides the best way to heal this lingering injury, but at the moment, it's expected that he will be ready for spring training.
