MLB notebook: Pedroia scratched from lineup with sore wrist

Dustin Pedroia was scratched from Boston's lineup because of a sore left wrist. Jonathan Herrera started at second base Sunday night against the New York Yankees. Red Sox manager John Farrell said Pedroia will return to Boston to be examined by a doctor Monday morning. The second baseman got hurt when he was taken out on a potential double play last weekend against Milwaukee. The 2008 AL MVP is batting .236 with no homers and one RBI in 55 at-bats. He has three extra-base hits and hasn't drawn a walk all season.

Derek Jeter was out of the Yankees' lineup for the second consecutive day after feeling tightness in his right quadriceps. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Jeter's quad got a little tight Friday night, but the 39-year-old shortstop finished the game. He received a scheduled day off Saturday, and the original plan was to play him Sunday night against Boston. Girardi said he changed his mind Saturday.

• The Nationals placed third baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a broken right thumb. Zimmerman is expected to miss four to six weeks.

• The Rangers put third baseman Adrian Beltre on the 15-day disabled list. Texas made the move just before Sunday's game, when they added newly acquired right-hander Hector Noesi to the roster. Beltre hasn't played since coming out of Tuesday's game at Boston with a strained left quad.

• The Blue Jays placed second baseman Maicer Izturis on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left knee and optioned catcher Erik Kratz, a former Pirates player, to Triple-A Buffalo.
