Red Sox get much needed day off

Boston Red Sox fans can breathe a deep sigh of relief as second baseman Dustin Pedroia found out on Monday that his wrist is not fractured but he will have to have more tests done. The injury helps explain why Pedroia has been off to such a sluggish start, only batting .236 with one lone run batted in.

The Red Sox had an off day on Monday which came at a good time. The team has lost seven of their last ten games included three out of four to the rival New York Yankees this past weekend.

Tuesday will start a string of 13 games in a row without a day off which will include what is sure to be an emotional Patriot's Day celebration next Monday. The Red Sox will kick it all off with a three game set with the Chicago White Sox on the road. The White Sox have scored more runs than any other team in baseball, but the good news is that they also have the second worst earned run average in the game.

Jake Peavy will take the mound on Tuesday against 24 year old Erik Johnson.
