Dustin Pedroia ranges to his left and slides to snare Marwin Gonzalez's grounder, then tosses to first from his knees for the out
- Second baseman Dustin Pedroia spent Wednesday in New York getting his injured left knee looked at by a specialist and will come back to Boston afterward to get it looked at by another doctor who examined his knee earlier in the season.
"We'll have to decide what will take place at that point after he sees those doctors," Dombrowski said. "We need to have his knee as good as it can be moving forward."
Pedroia, 34, dealt with months of discomfort in his left knee and spent time on the disabled list. That's created questions about whether he will be ready for the start of the 2018 season. Pedroia had surgery on his left knee after the 2016 season.
With a lack of power in the Red Sox's lineup playing a big role in the regular season and playoffs, Dombrowski said that he'd make it a priority to find players this offseason who could help the team score more runs.
He mentioned that it could be outside of the organization via free agency or trade. The club has yet to decide whether it would be willing to go over the luxury-tax threshold, something the Red Sox didn't want to do last offseason.
"We need to score more runs. I didn't supply the players that would give us enough runs," Dombrowski said. "We do need that. That's part of our offseason goal. I'm surprised with the players we have that we didn't score more runs."
