BOSTON – Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has undergone season-ending surgery for a broken bone in his left foot.

A screw was inserted into the foot in Friday’s operation. The 2008 AL MVP finished the season with 12 homers, 41 RBI and a .288 batting average.

Pedroia fouled a ball off his foot on June 25. He was sidelined until Aug. 17 and played in just two games before pain in his foot sent him back to the disabled list.

Pedroia said before Thursday’s game in Baltimore that an operation would help the foot heal.

The injury limited him to 75 games this season after he averaged 150 the past three seasons.

FRIDAY’S GAME against the Chicago White Sox at Fenway Park was postponed because of the threat of severe weather from Hurricane Earl.

The game was rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader today. The pitching rotation remains the same, with Friday’s scheduled starters, John Danks (12-9) of the White Sox and Clay Buchholz (15-5) of the Red Sox going in the first game, and Gavin Floyd (9-11) going against Boston’s John Lackey (12-8) in the nightcap.
