On Wednesday, Pedroia had cartilage restoration surgery and according to Tim Britton of the Providence Journal, he's going to be out a while.

The Red Sox announced on Wednesday that Dustin Pedroia successfully underwent a cartilage restoration procedure to fix his left knee.

The Red Sox described the surgery, performed in NY, as "cartilage restoration".

The team announced that Pedroia's anticipated return will be in approximately seven months. Browne also reported that Pedroia will not be ready to play baseball for at least 7 months and could be out until May of next season.

At 34 years old, the veteran admitted that recovery could take "a long time", which means that Pedroia's start to the 2018 season could be delayed.

Without Pedroia, utilityman Brock Holt would be the sensible in-house fill-in next year.

The right-handed hitter was clearly hampered by a lack of strength in his leg down the stretch, hitting.242 with two doubles, one homer and eight RBIs in September.

Pedroia first broke in with the Red Sox in 2006, playing in only 31 games.

It's the same surgery Steven Wright underwent in May.
