Report: Pedroia (thumb) could miss a month

Just as the Red Sox were hoping to exceed .500, they suffer a potentially huge blow to their lineup.

ESPN's Karl Ravech says he's "hearing" that Dustin Pedroia is likely to miss a month with a thumb injury he suffered in Monday's win over the Tigers.

Pedroia is out of the lineup tonight against the Tigers and will be replaced by Nick Punto at second base.
