TORONTO — Dustin Pedroia just took 25 swings during batting practice on the field. He took hitting in the cage earlier in the day.
He was asked how he felt.
"How did it look?" Pedroia shot back, pleased with all the line drives he hit.
Bobby Valentine said they need to see how Pedroia's thumb responds to the session. But the tentative plan is for him to take BP again on Sunday.
There seems to be a decent chance Pedroia returns to the lineup on Tuesday.
