Dustin Pedroia’s body does not seem to be cooperating with him.

Pedroia is on a rehab assignment with the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs and exited Friday’s game early because he “didn’t feel right,” according to Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora.

This has been a long-running theme for the former AL MVP.

Pedroia has been dealing with persistent knee problems since 2017. He hit the injured list three times that season due to his knee and was limited to 105 games. He underwent knee surgery after the season and only played in three games last season, going 1-for-11. He was able to play in six games this season but went just 2-for-20 and has been trying to work his way back since.

Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton could begin rehab assignment on Monday After being decimated by injuries in the first quarter of the MLB season, the New York Yankees are finally receiving positive news on the injury front. All-Star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who has been sidelined since early April with a biceps strain, could begin a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa on Monday. Giancarlo Stanton has been facing live pitching in Tampa as he goes through rehab for his shoulder. Aaron Boone says he was hit in the knee yesterday, but checked out OK. He’ll face more live pitching today, in hopes of starting a rehab assignment Monday with the High-A Tarpons.

Pedroia had played five rehab games with the Sea Dogs, going 4-for-16. The Boston Globe reported that Pedroia will go back on his rehab assignment after a short delay, noting that rehab windows last only 20 days, and Pedroia needed a reset because he would not be able to return in the allotted time.

Maybe Pedroia will be able to work his way back to the Red Sox, but it won’t be without plenty of bumps along the way. His knees are enough of a problem where he simply cannot be counted on.
