The Red Sox stalwart second baseman, a fringe Hall of Fame candidate, will miss at least the first couple months of play next year after undergoing left knee surgery Wednesday. After consulting doctors in NY and Boston, he opted for surgery. Riley Williams III at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY, is expected to keep the 34-year-old from playing in games for approximately seven months, according to the team.

"'It is anticipated that Pedroia would return to games in approximately seven months", the Red Sox said in a press release. The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham estimates that time frame equates to 50-plus games.

Pedroia dealt with a left knee injury all season, even after having arthroscopic surgery last October to fix a torn meniscus.

Pedroia made two trips to the disabled list (29 days combined) during 2017 because of left knee inflammation.

Next season will be Pedroia's 13th in the majors.

From the start of '17, Pedroia's knee was a constant issue. The Red Sox lost in four games to the Astros in the American League Division Series, with Pedroia going 2-for-16. Despite that obligation, the Sox will likely need to find an infielder this offseason.
