Following his life-long battle of doubt being a 5-foot-9 infielder, following a 2007 World Series title that came with a Rookie of the Year Award, and a 2008 American League MVP Award, Dustin Pedroia remains among one of the franchise’s all-time great infielders.
To be fair, Pedroia has experienced a great decline in power, all due to his year-after-year battle with ongoing injuries and countless surgical procedure rehabilitation periods.
Nevertheless, in 2013, Dustin Pedroia had perhaps his final major contribution season in a Boston Red Sox uniform.
That year would see Pedey play in a career-high 160 games while hitting .301/.372/.415 with nine home runs and 84 runs batted in. Not to mention Pedroia’s elite defensive contribution which came rewarded with a 2013 Gold-Glove Award.
With Dustin Pedroia remaining under contract and all intentions towards a return to the field according to Pedroia, who are we to rule out the man who’s made a living proving everyone wrong?
