Pedroia sat out Friday’s night’s tough 5-4 loss to the second-place Yankees despite not playing Wednesday and an off-day Thursday.

“Our goal was to get him some at-bats before this (Yankees) series,” Farrell said Friday (via CSNNE.com). “He’s shown that there’s been a little bit of a pushback in terms of the reaction to it. Some swelling, some inflammation.

“I wouldn’t rule out the DL. … We’ll see where this goes over the next 24 hours.”

The Boston Globe reported that Pedroia is likely to be examined again by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Andreas Gomoll in Boston, but it might not be until Monday.

“Just trying to do the best we can to monitor it and do whatever we can,” Pedroia said, via the Globe. “There’s swelling. Just trying to get through it, man. We’ll see how it responds.”

Pedroia was 0-for-4 as a DH Tuesday against the Rays in his only game since coming off a 10-day stay on the DL.

“Nothing happened in that game,” Pedroia said. “It’s just been a lot of swelling.”

In 86 games, Pedroia has hit .303/.378/.406 with 54 RBIs and 37 runs while having a strong defensive season (one error in 328 total chances).

Eduardo Nunez started at second Friday and Brock Holt is available, but if Pedroia is headed back to the DL then Deven Marrero or Tzu-Wei Lin are candidates to be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, according to the Globe.

After Friday's loss, the Red Sox lead the Yankees by 3 1/2 games in the AL East. The teams meet nine more times in the next 23 days.
