Shane Victorino RF BOS 1 day ago

Victorino (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday, the Boston Herald's Michael Silverman reports.

As has been the case fairly regularly since 2013, Victorino is dealing with a hamstring injury, and will be out at least until early May. The Red Sox are more than capable of replacing Victorino with a combination of Allen Craig, Daniel Nava and Brock Holt. Given Victorino's recent track record, this may not be his last stay on the DL this year and in shallower leagues his uneven playing time makes him difficult to roster.

Victorino (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Orioles, CSNNE's Sean McAdam reports.

Hamstring issues have sidelined Victorino on six separate occasions over the past two seasons, so it should come as no surprise that he is once again missing time with that ailment. Allen Craig will get the start in right field and Victorino should be considered day-to-day.

Victorino (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Orioles, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Victorino's workload is expected to be limited as he continues to recover from a minor hamstring issue. He didn't play Thursday, and won't Friday either, but could be in and out of the lineup moving forward.

Victorino (hamstring) may have a lightened workload as he recovers from his minor injury, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Victorino is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Tampa Bay, and while the Red Sox don't expect him to miss extended time, the 34-year-old outfielder may get some extra days off over the next few weeks. Healthy or not, Victorino may eventually be in danger of losing some playing time, as the Red Sox still have excellent outfield depth, and the veteran is off to a slow start.

Victorino (hamstring) is out of the lineup Thursday, CSNNE's Sean McAdam reports.

His hamstring injury is not believed to be serious, and he could get back into the lineup sometime in this weekend's series in Baltimore. Daniel Nava will get the start in right field Thursday against the Rays.

Victorino's hamstring injury is not serious, and he should not miss any extended time.

This is said to be a nagging hamstring injury, something he has dealt with many times in the past. The Red Sox were likely going to rest Victorino Thursday anyways, so he could be back in the lineup as early as Friday.

Victorino left Wednesday's game due to right hamstring tightness, Mike Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

Victorino has dealt with his fair share of hamstring issues in the past, so the team is likely taking an extra cautious approach. Look for Allen Craig to extra reps in the short term if Victorino has to miss time, as Rusney Castillo remains without a clear timetable for his return to game action.

Victorino was removed from Wednesday's game in the fifth inning.

Victorino was replaced by Allen Craig after going 0-for-1 at the dish to start the game. No word on the nature of the injury has surfaced, but he may have shaken something up during a stolen base attempt earlier in the contest.

Victorino will make his fourth consecutive start in right field after experiencing rib soreness last week, but is expected to get a day off Thursday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Victorino crashed into the right field wall in last Friday's contest and was later scratched from the lineup Saturday, but he's been able to return to the lineup without any incident. Should he get the day off Thursday, Daniel Nava will likely fill in and assume the right field duties.

Victorino (ribs) is starting in right field Sunday against the Orioles.

Victorino was a late scratch in Saturday's lineup due to rib soreness, but his crash with the right field wall Friday will only keep him out of action one game. The 34-year-old is 3-for-24 at the dish to start the year, and is still in search of his first extra-base hit of the season.
