Dustin Pedroia had his MRI on his injured thumb Tuesday, and supposedly, the results aren't in yet. What we do know is that he isn't in the lineup against Justin Verlander and the Tigers. What we might know is that Pedroia is set to a miss a month:

Punto in lineup for red sox, nothing official yet but hearing Pedroia likely to miss a month

None of the local beat has confirmed this rumor as of yet, but, given our little pep talk about how injuries always seem to be worst-case scenario when it comes to Boston as of late, you could be forgiven if you're now in a less pleasant state of mind than you were before clicking on this story. Just because it hasn't been repeated doesn't mean it's necessarily untrue, although the fact that Pedroia hasn't even heard yet makes you wonder where this information came from.

We'll update you when we know something for certain, whether it be good or bad news. For now, Scott Lauber and the Boston Herald:

Bobby Valentine said the injury didn't occur on the diving stop that Pedroia made in the fifth inning yesterday, a play that preceded his exit from the game. In fact, Pedroia has been coping with discomfort for about three weeks, according to Valentine. The second baseman has been using extra padding on his thumb and even changed his grip during batting practice. If anything, Valentine surmised that Pedroia may have aggravated his thumb when he was jammed on a swing earlier in the game yesterday.
