NEW YORK -- When the Red Sox take the field to start a homestand against the Blue Jays tonight, Dustin Pedroia will be at second base.

Pedroia hasn't played since suffering a concussion against the Rays on Aug. 30. With each day, Pedroia has felt improvement.

Pedroia will bat second against the Blue Jays.

Brock Holt played second base in Pedroia's absence on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium.
