Pitch bruises Pedroia's arm; X-rays negative
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After swinging at an Adam Warren pitch that struck his right arm, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia's right hand started shaking. With it being Spring Training, manager Bobby Valentine didn't even think of leaving Pedroia in the game.

So Pedroia exited the Grapefruit League contest against the Yankees, which ended in a 4-4 tie, right after that strikeout in the bottom of the third inning due to what was diagnosed as a contusion of his right forearm.

X-Rays came back negative.

Pedroia was scratched from Friday's game against the Orioles in Sarasota, Fla., but he could be back within a couple of days.

"You guys know him better than I do -- I'm just glad the X-rays were negative," Valentine said. "No, he's not making the trip. He was in there tomorrow."
