Pedroia underwent successful surgery on his left knee and will miss the start of the 2018 season, the team announced Wednesday.
"It is anticipated that Pedroia would return to games in approximately seven months," the Red Sox said in a press release. The 34-year-old Pedroia was on the disabled list twice after the All-Star break this season with what the Red Sox called inflammation. He had surgery on the left knee last offseason to repair a torn meniscus.
