Pedroia ready for games

When the exhibition games start on Saturday for the Red Sox, players who missed significant time with injuries will be back on the field.

Dustin Pedroia is most prominent among them. The second baseman will bat second in the 1 p.m. game against Boston College.

“I’m moving around good. I feel good and I’m just excited to be out there,” said Pedroia. “It’s going to be fun. it’s  been a long time. I’ve put a lot of hard work in getting back and it should be fun.”

Pedroia fractured the navicular bone in his left foot on June 25 in San Francisco, and had a two-game comeback in mid-August before going back on the shelf for good. Now, he’s back, and ready to be healthy for a full season.

“I’m just like everybody else right now,” Pedroia said. “Everybody pretty much goes every other day so I’m sure I’ll be on that plan for a little bit and I’ll just kind of ease it back in. I’ve felt great over here — there hasn’t been any problems.”
