It appears Dustin Pedroia came back too soon. He is headed back to the disabled list according to media reports out of Boston, including boston.com.
Replacing Pedroia is former Sea Dogs infielder Yamaico Navarro, 22, who was just recently promoted from Portland to Pawtucket.
Navarro batted .274 for the Sea Dogs with eight home runs and 55 RBI. In 16 games with Pawtucket, he batted .283 with three home runs and six RBI.
Navarro is the third member of this year's Sea Dogs team to reach the majors, following Felix Doubront and Ryan Kalish.
Navarro is not in the lineup tonight. Jed Lowrie gets the start at second base.
Here in Portland, shortstop Jose Iglesias continues his careful comeback from the DL. He will be the designated hitter tonight at Hadlock Field.
