  • Dustin Pedroia (knee) has been cleared to begin running.<p><b>Advice</b>: Pedroia mentioned on a podcast last week that his goal is to be ready for Opening Day. With him being cleared to run a full month ahead of the start of spring training, it may just give him a shot. Boston will likely take things very carefully with the 34-year-old second baseman, however, and we'll need to hear the words "baseball activities" before getting too optimistic. Still, this is good news for Pedroia and Red Sox fans.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/alexspeier/status/954079259689136128">Alex Speier on Twitter</a></p>

  • Dustin Pedroia said on a podcast Thursday that he's aiming to be ready for Opening Day after knee surgery.<p><b>Advice</b>: It sounded like Pedroia would miss at least the first 6-8 weeks after having a cartilage restoration procedure in October, but as he told Rob Bradford, he's hoping that won't be necessary. The Red Sox have yet to take aim at a second baseman to fill in for him in the early stages of the season, and if Pedroia really thinks he can return in April, they might opt to stick with what they have, which is some combination of Brock Holt, Marco Hernandez and Tzu Wei-Lin.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/bradfo/status/951560893392936960">Rob Bradford on Twitter</a></p>
