Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has a fractured left ring finger and won't play in the final two games of the season against the Yankees on Tuesday and Wednesday in New York, according to multiple media reports.

Pedroia was injured when he jammed the finger into the second base bag on his stolen base attempt on Sunday in Baltimore. He did not play in a 10-2 loss to the Yankees on Monday night.

General manager Ben Cherington told the Boston Globe that Pedroia has an avulsion fracture of the left ring finger.

Pedroia finishes the season with a .288 batting average, 15 homers and 64 RBI in 139 games. He was on the disabled list from July 4-18 with a right thumb injury.
