Pedroia graduates from prospect-dom

Dustin Pedroia was called up to Boston on August 22 last year and since then has been anointed the starting 2B for the big club. Today, Dustin Pedroia graduates from being a prospect. Pedroia, generally a slow starter, has struggled in his first few months in a Red Sox uniform, hitting .184 in his first 125 MLB at bats. However, the front office still has faith that he will come around, and Pedroia is trying to stay positive despite his offensive struggles.

SoxProspects.com uses the MLB "Rookie of the Year" eligibility to determine prospect status - once a player hits 130 at bats, 50 innings pitched, or 45 days on any MLB roster, he is eligible for Rookie of the Year. At that point, that player is also no longer a "prospect" for the purposes of this site. Thats why well-respected players such as Manny Delcarmen and Craig Hansen, while still considered to be future contributors to the Red Sox, are no longer considered prospects. Here's wisihing Dustin good luck in the 2007 season and the rest of his big league career!
