Dustin Pedroia remains out of Boston lineup
Red Sox manager John Farrell said before Monday's game against Tampa Bay that Pedroia is feeling a little better but still experiencing symptoms. Farrell is not optimistic about Pedroia playing in a three-game series with the New York Yankees that begins Tuesday night.
Boston designated hitter David Ortiz is also out of Monday's lineup. Farrell said the team had planned to give some off days to Ortiz, who recently fouled a ball off his foot. Farrell felt that Monday was a good day, with Tampa Bay starting left-hander Drew Smyly.
