Pedroia Promoted


Boston promoted 2004 second-round draft pick Dustin Pedroia from AA Portland to AAA Pawtucket on Wednesday. The second baseman hit .324 with 8 HRs, 40 RBIs, and 7 stolen bases through 66 games at Portland. Pedroia will start at second base for Pawtucket and bat in the two-hole.

In addition to having a solid year at the plate, Pedroia has an excellent reputation as a top-notch defensive infielder. He won the 2003 NCAA Defensive Player of the Year award playing shortstop for Arizona State. The Red Sox moved Pedroia to second base prior to the 2005 season to play alongside with Hanley Ramirez. Pedroia is also said to be a great teammate and an extremely hard worker.
