Dustin Pedroia (ribs) a late-addition to Red Sox lineup
Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (ribs) is in the lineup on Friday.
Pedroia has been out of the lineup all week after taking a pitch to the ribs on Sunday. He feels better on Friday as he will return to the lineup and bat second versus the Los Angeles Angels. Josh Rutledge will return to the bench.
The Red Sox have the third-highest implied run total of the night (5.58) and are facing Alex Meyer who walks 14.8% of the batters he faces, making Pedroia a solid second base option at $3,200 on Friday.
