Hamstring injury frustrates Red Sox OF Shane Victorino
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) After sustaining a hamstring injury during Wednesday's contest, which will keep him out of a few games, Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino admits the injury came out of nowhere, reports WEEI.
"There were no signs. Zero," he said. "That's where the biggest frustration comes from. No signs. I would feel a lot better if there was a sign that suggested it was tight or I felt something in there. Nothing. I felt great. The saw him do a big leg kick and I thought I could take the bag. But then I feel it when I start to slide and dive and I'm like, 'What the heck?' It's definitely not what I felt last year. It's in that same area, and that's the part where my conscious is saying, 'Damn, again?'"
Victorino did take solace knowing the injury is not as severe as it was last season.
"It definitely doesn't feel [as bad as before]," he said. "I think I'll be fine. My goal is that I would love to play this weekend. I'm hoping that it heals. It's definitely not what I felt before, but it still worried me because it's the same area."
He was able to hit off a tee Friday, but he has not been cleared to do any intense running, reports the Providence Journal.
Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) not expected to sit long
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell said outfielder Shane Victorino isn't expected to miss much time with the right hastring injury he sustained on Wedneday, according to WEEI.
“He’s doing great,” Farrell said. “He’s day-to-day. And before we get him back to the game we’ll get him through some running. Change in direction, some explosive work, just to test it out. He came into today feeling better than anticipated but still day to day."
|2014 summary: Shane Victorino's season started late due to a hamstring injury, but it took less than a month for another hamstring injury to sideline the 11-year veteran. Victorino would only play nine more games the rest of the season, as he was done for the season by early August when he underwent surgery for a back injury. Amassing just 123 at-bats, Victorino batted .268 but delivered just two home runs and two stolen bases.|
Playing time status: When healthy, Victorino has been a regular in his two seasons with the Red Sox, but he has managed to play just 152 games during his time in Boston. Though he should be ready for the start of spring training, Victorino will likely have to compete for a starting role.
2015 outlook: Even though he was limited to 122 games, Victorino was a top 30 outfielder in 2013, and even last season, there were signs that his skill set was largely intact. Nonetheless, a mountain of injuries, fierce competition for playing time, and the onset of his mid-30s could all spell trouble for Victorino. He's a late-round flier at best, and that's only if it appears he is line for regular playing time.
