Victorino (hamstring) isn't expected to be activated from the 15-day DL until next week at the earliest, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Victorino is tentatively scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday at Double-A Portland, where he'll likely play at least two games before the Red Sox bring him back to the big club. There's some uncertainty as to whether Victorino will regain his starting right field job upon his return, as the Red Sox have received strong play from Brock Holt and have Rusney Castillo waiting in the wings at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Victorino (hamstring) has been running with more intensity and should be able to start a rehab assignment next week, the Boston Globe reports. Manager John Farrell suggested Victorino would heat to Triple-A Pawtucket or Double-A Portland.

Beyond the rehab, the real question is whether or not Victorino returns as the starter in right field. Brock Holt has cooled off a bit after a hot stretch, but isn't an injury risk like Victorino.

Victorino (hamstring) has already increased his running program, and he may start a rehab assignment next week, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

While Victorino's hamstring injuries seem to be never-ending, it sounds as if this latest one may only sideline him for the minimum 15 days. In his absence, the Red Sox have more at-bats available for Allen Craig, Daniel Nava and Brock Holt.

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.
