Today the Red Sox announced that they’ve ended Pedroia’s rehab assignment, and transferred him to the 60-day DL.

The poor guy has had trouble returning to the field ever since Manny Machado took his legs out two years ago.

If this is truly the end for Dustin Pedroia, he still leaves behind a remarkable career.

The short second basemen played with heart since the beginning, winning the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 2007.

He’s a two-time World Series Champ, and a 4x All-Star. Pedroia was the AL MVP in 2008 at the age of just 24 as well.

As a Jays fan, I can’t express how frustrating it was seeing this dude haunt us on a regular basis. Hope this isn’t truly the end, but if it is, he’s Hall of Fame bound regardless.
