BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

Boston said Wednesday the procedure, a partial medial meniscectomy and chondroplasty, was successful and he is expected to be ready for spring training.

Pedroia batted .318 this season — his highest since winning the AL MVP in 2008 — and added 15 homers and 74 RBIs. The Red Sox were swept in the AL Division Series by the Cleveland Indians.
