Victorino is dealing with "general soreness," Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.

Victorino was scratched from Thursday's lineup, though a specific reason beyond general soreness isn't available yet. It doesn't sound as though whatever is ailing him is too serious of an issue, so Victorino should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Victorino is not in the lineup Wednesday, the Boston Herald's Scott Lauber reports.

He should not be considered an everyday player at this point, as he typically gets a few games off per week in right field. With Rusney Castillo nearing a call-up, Victorino's playing time will only continue to trend down. Daniel Nava gets the start in right field Wednesday.
