Red Sox 2B Pedroia out of lineup

Sports Xchange - Tuesday 20th June, 2017

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series-opening game against the host Kansas City Royals.

Pedroia was hit in the back by a pitch from Houston Astros reliever James Hoyt in the seventh inning on Sunday night. The former American League MVP was taken to a Houston hospital for X-rays on his rib area.

Josh Rutledge is scheduled to play at second base in place of the 33-year-old Pedroia, who is batting .296 with two homers and 25 RBIs in 55 games this season.

Rutledge, 28, is hitting .240 with nine RBIs in 34 games this season.
