Red Sox vs. White Sox: Dustin Pedroia out at least one more day

Jim McIsaac

Dustin Pedroia isn't ready to make his return just yet, leaving the Red Sox another man down for at least one more game.

Dustin Pedroia is aiming for a Wednesday return after receiving a cortisone shot for his left wrist, but he'll sit out at least one more game first, leaving Jonathan Herrera to field second base as the Red Sox try to turn around a disappointing start against the Chicago White Sox.

Boston Red Sox (5-8)

  1. Grady Sizemore, LF
  2. Xander Bogaerts, SS

Chicago White Sox (7-6)

  1. Adam Eaton, CF
  2. Marcus Semien, 2B
  3. Conor Gillaspie, 3B
  4. Jose Abreu, 1B
  5. Adam Dunn, DH
  6. Dayan Viciedo, RF
  7. Alejandro De Aza, LF
  8. Alexei Ramirez, SS
  9. Tyler Flowers, C

Starting Pitcher -- Erik Johnson

The obvious question: why is Grady Sizemore starting in left field now that we're in a park without New Yankee Stadium's...quirks. The obvious answer: because that's where the Red Sox expect him to play when Shane Victorino returns. Given the fragile nature of Sizemore and Victorino alike, there will still be time for the likes of Daniel Nava and/or Jonny Gomes to get plenty of at bats (assuming they're still on the roster). But it's hard not to get the feeling that Sizemore - Bradley - Victorino is the outfield plan going forward.

First pitch will be at 8:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.
