The Boston Red Sox have activated second baseman Dustin Pedroia from the disabled list, reports Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald:

To make room on their roster, the Red Sox optioned infielder Mauro Gomez to Triple-A.

Pedroia saw his first action since the beginning of July last night against the Chicago White Sox, collecting a hit, a single, over his four at-bats.

The 28-year-old had been sidelined due to a thumb injury. He told reporters that he doesn’t see his thumb becoming a lingering issue over the remainder of the season.

On the year, Pedroia has hit at a clip of .265/.326/.398 with 19 doubles, two triples, six home runs and 33 RBIs.

Gomez has played in nine games for the Red Sox this season, collecting nine hits, including three doubles, over his 30 at-bats. The 27-year-old has spent much of the season with the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate, where he’s posted an OPS of 1.005.

Will Pedroia turn things around over the second half of the season?
