Red Sox manager John Farrell confirmed that Dustin Pedroia has some symptoms that are consistent with a concussion.
Pedroia left the game in the second inning after being hit in the head with another players' arm. Head injuries are tricky, so it's tough to tell how long he'll be out for (if he even has a concussion), but he was taken out of the game immediately and appeared to be in pain. He'll go through the league's concussion protocol, but if he has a concussion, the Red Sox will likely play it safe with him and give him plenty of time as they're out of contention.

Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
