Cold7/24/2014 10:36:00 AM
Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia is not in Thursday afternoon's starting lineup.
Insight: Pedroia has just one hit over the past five games (20 AB) so we like him getting a day off. Being a .269 hitter with four homers, 37 RBI and 50 runs is well below expectations for the former AL MVP.

Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia doesn't have good numbers against Toronto's R.A. Dickey.
Insight: Pedroia is 2-for-15 (.133) against Dickey. He's also batting .150 (6-for-40) with one extra-base hit over his last 10 games and has collected just three extra-base hits and zero home runs in his last 27 contests.

Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia is just 6-for-36 with a lone double over his last nine games and hitless in the past three contests.
Insight: The "Laser Show" hasn't done much over the first half of the season and fantasy owners are likely growing concerned. Contrary to his career numbers, Pedroia has been better on the road than in Fenway this season.

Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia has collected three hits in three of his last four games.
Insight: All nine hits were singles, however. Pedroia (.277) does have 23 doubles this year, but he's hit just four homers and hasn't had an extra-base hit in his last 11 games. He's also swiped just two bases on seven attempts. If someone wants to pay for his name rather than his production in a trade, go for it.

Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia owns Oakland left-hander Scott Kazmir to the tune of a .514 batting average (18-for-35).
Insight: Pedroia is a career .300 hitter, who has been floundering around the .260-.275 mark for most of the season. Perhaps this favorable matchup will get him started.

Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia has smacked Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen around in his career.
Insight: Pedroia went hitless in his last three games and has a .717 OPS this season, but his history against Chen is too enticing to ignore. He's gone 12-for-24 (.500) with five doubles and a triple against the left-hander.

Description: Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia (hand) is in the lineup Sunday, according to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal.
Insight: The X-rays on Pedroia's bruised right hand were negative and his MRI revealed no structural damage. The second baseman has gone just 3-for-19 (.158) against Tampa Bay's Erik Bedard, so daily fantasy players should stay away from him Sunday.
