The Red Sox said he would be able to return in about seven months, meaning he wouldn't slot into the Boston lineup until late May or June.

If it's October, it must mean Dustin Pedroia is having surgery to fix his latest injury.

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.

Pedroia underwent a cartilage restoration procedure on his left knee Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

Dustin Pedroia has dealt with injury troubles over the last several seasons.

From the start of '17, Pedroia's knee was a constant issue.

The Red Sox acquired utility infielder Eduardo Nunez a few days before the July 31 trade deadline in part to play second base in Pedroia's absence. He batted.293 with a.761 OPS, and seven home runs.

Pedroia has four years and $56 million left on his contract.

Dr. Riley Williams III performed the surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY, N.Y.
