Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is expected back this weekend after experiencing concussion-like symptoms the past few days, according to a report Wednesday night from Alex Spier of Boston's WEEI.com.
Pedroia, a 31-year-old four-time All-Star, exited early from Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay after he was elbowed in the head by Logan Forsythe, who was sliding head first into second.
Pedroia is batting .280 in 131 games this year. The Sox are currently fifth in the AL East.
