News: Pedroia (wrist) reports he's "full go," telling WEEI.com that he's been hitting since before Christmas. "If [spring training] started tomorrow, I'm ready," Pedroia said. "I've got all my strength back. I'm lifting like a maniac. I'm pretty excited. Last year at this time I couldn't hit yet. It's obvious a lot different offseason this year than last year."
Impact: Pedroia's been rehabbing from September wrist surgery, the second procedure on his hand the past two years. He was a shell of his usual self in 2014, so the return to full health is a hopeful sign. The question remains have the injuries taken a toll on the gold-glove second baseman, who had a .712 OPS in 2014. Remember back in in 2010-2011 when he was an impact hitter with an .861 OPS.

News: Pedroia declared his surgically repaired wrist 100 percent, ESPN Boston reports. He underwent surgery on his left wrist Sept. 11 for what the Red Sox called a "first dorsal compartment release and a tenosynovectomy."
Impact: The wrist surgery was the second one Pedroia's had on his hand in two years, having undergone surgery in 2013 to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. The 2014 wrist injury took its toll on Pedroia, who posted career lows in every meaningful offensive category. He said he's already begun his offseason workouts.
