Red Sox Activate Dustin Pedroia From DL

The Boston Red Sox have had so many players sent to the disabled list, then activated, then sent back to the DL, that it’s hard to keep track.

So if it’s Thursday, this must be Dustin Pedroia Activation Day. Right? Right!

Poor Mauro Gomez. He was recalled May 13, optioned May 20, recalled July 3, optioned July 14, and just recalled Wednesday when David Ortiz was placed on the disabled list. Now he’s optioned back to Pawtucket again. And he can’t even pile up frequent flyer miles; it’s only 45 miles down I-95 from Fenway Park to McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket. Gomez must know every leaf on that route by now.

But Red Sox fans will be happy their second baseman is back in the lineup; he’s batting third Thursday evening against the White Sox.
