Pedroia to return Friday

Just as the Red Sox were updating the situation on Kevin Youkilis, which doesn’t seem to be anything to fret about, it was revealed that Dustin Pedroia will be back in the lineup for Friday’s game against the Pirates. Pedroia will get two at-bats Friday, take BP on Saturday and then get about three at-bats on Sunday.

As for Youkilis, he will wear a boot on his foot for two to three days, then hopefully progress to batting practice, and perhaps game action at some point next week.

Bench coach Brad Mills will manage the Sox on Friday. Terry Francona will be attending the graduation of son Nick from Officer Candidate School.

Congratulations to Tito and his family. Good news.
Good to see Lester settle down after the run in the first inning. Six SO’s! Great work! Keep it up Jon! GO SOX!

Thanks for the updates on Pedroia and Youk. I’ll be there on Saturday against the Marlins in Jupiter. Any chance one or both of ‘em will be in the lineup?

PS: In case anyone was wondering, I got some great comments and advice on my research paper! No grade though– my teacher doesn’t role that way.

Saw that Jed Lowrie & Chris Carter had home runs off of Bronson Arroyo tonight!
