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.

He missed Sunday's series finale at the New York Yankees.

Pedroia replaced Mike Napoli in the top of the ninth inning against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday when Napoli was injured sliding into second base. Pedroia remained in the game in the bottom of the ninth and played second base.

"I was getting a little bit worried. It was getting worse every day," Pedroia said before the game. "Everything got inflamed. You keep swinging and playing and it just adds up until you think something is really wrong."

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.
