Red Sox second baseman Pedroia has cortisone injection in wrist

CHICAGO — Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia had a cortisone injection in his left wrist and hopes to return to Boston's starting lineup on Wednesday night.
The AL MVP was injured April 4 when Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez broke up a double play at second base in the ninth inning. Pedroia is hitting .139 (5 for 36) since then with one RBI and no walks, leaving his season average at .236.
"Hopefully, I'll be in here tomorrow," Pedroia said Tuesday. They gave me a shot to calm everything down. They said it's 24, 48 hours to kick in, and then I'll get there and go."
He missed Sunday's series finale at the New York Yankees.
"I was getting a little bit worried. It was getting worse every day," Pedroia said. "Everything got inflamed. You keep swinging and playing and it just adds up until you think something is really wrong."
Red Sox manager John Farrell said it was possible Pedroia could pinch hit Tuesday.
In other injury news, closer Koji Uehara threw a bullpen session on Tuesday, is expected to throw another Wednesday and could be available for Thursday's game. He has not pitched since April 9 because of a sore right shoulder.
