The Boston Red Sox have placed second baseman Dustin Pedroia on the 60-day injured list.
The move further puts in doubt whether the former AL MVP will play again.
The Red Sox made the roster move while claiming right-hander Phillips Valdez off waivers from the Seattle Mariners.

The 36-year-old Pedroia has played just nine games over the last two seasons. The four-time All-Star has spent the time trying to recover from an injury he sustained when Manny Machado slid spikes-high into his left knee in May 2017.
Pedroia has two years and $25 million remaining on his contract.
