FORT MYERS, Fla. — Monday marked a significant day in spring training for Dustin Pedroia, a full workout that manager Alex Cora said would help determine when the second baseman is ready for a game.
As reporters approached him after a roughly hour-long session that included ground balls, five rounds of batting practice, and several sprints around the bases — home to first, first to second, and second to home — Pedroia arched his eyebrows. How did the milestone day go?
“I didn’t know it was a milestone day,’’ Pedroia said. “Honestly, I didn’t even know [Cora] said that.’’
