Pitch bruises Pedroia's arm; X-rays negative
By Ian Browne / MLB.com
So Pedroia exited the Grapefruit League contest against the Yankees, which ended in a 4-4 tie, right after that strikeout in the bottom of the third inning due to what was diagnosed as a contusion of his right forearm.
X-Rays came back negative.
Pedroia was scratched from Friday's game against the Orioles in Sarasota, Fla., but he could be back within a couple of days.
"You guys know him better than I do -- I'm just glad the X-rays were negative," Valentine said. "No, he's not making the trip. He was in there tomorrow."
