Pedroia announced on WEEI that he expects to have surgery on his injured thumb within the next couple of weeks. The injury, which plagued Pedey through much of the season, has been considered the main culprit for his lack of power production this year.
Despite having the annoyance of a thumb injury, Pedroia was able to put up some serious offensive stats through much of the 2013 year. By the end of the regular season Pedey had recorded a .301 batting average including 9 home runs, 84 RBI and an OBP of .372.
Did I mention the guy had a torn ligament in his thumb?!
