Following his team's 9-4 win over the Braves Tuesday afternoon, Red Sox manager John Farrell passed along that tests revealed no structural damage to his left knee and that he should be back in the lineup shortly. Pedroia, who injured the knee when attempting to execute a double play in the fifth inning against the Blue Jays Sunday afternoon, didn't do much to elaborate on his timetable after Tuesday's win. "I'll be in there in the next couple of days," he noted. Farrell also suggested Ramirez, who sat out of Tuesday's game with a sore mid-back, would be available for the opening game of the Sox' two-game set in Atlanta. "Both are day to day," the manager said. "I would expect that Hanley would be available for sure tomorrow after going through a full day of treatment for his back. Nothing structurally was defined with the images that Pedey underwent before the game. He'€™s dealing with some inflammation. He'€™s dealing with a little bit of fluid and hopefully in a day or two he'€™s back in the lineup." Without the pair, the Red Sox still managed 18 hits against the Braves. Coming into the series finale, Pedroia had been one of the Red Sox' hottest hitters, hitting .397 with a 1.005 OPS in 14 games this month.
