Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has knee surgery, likely out for seven months

BOSTON, Massachusetts (USA TODAY) -- Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia had another surgery on his left knee, the team announced on Wednesday. The team expects him to return to games in seven months.

Pedroia “underwent a successful cartilage restoration procedure” on the same knee that was operated on last offseason, which addressed a torn meniscus.
 
Pedroia spent much of the final weeks of the season on the disabled list and played in only 105 games overall in 2017, hitting .293.
 
This was at least the seventh surgery the 34-year-old Pedroia has had over his 12-season MLB career, according to The Boston Globe.
