Laser Show Returns: Dustin Pedroia Activated

For the first time in nearly two months, Dustin Pedroia will rejoin the active roster of the Red Sox.

It’s been a longer-than-expected recovery for Pedroia, who went on the disabled list after fracturing his foot with a foul ball in the June 25 game against the Giants.

Pedroia has played only two games in Pawtucket since being cleared by doctors to start his rehab assignment, but has declared it to be "good enough." He had one hit in six at bats.

We all know the impact Pedroia has on this team, and it's been clear how much it hurt to lose him (that Wild Card seems so far away now). Hopefully he can pick up where he left off, and try and get us back in this thing.
