Red Sox returning RF Shane Victorino gives encouraging effort
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/5/15) Red Sox veteran right fielder Shane Victorino didn't look like a guy Saturday that had not played for nearly seven weeks.
Victorino slammed two hits and scored twice batting eighth in a defeat of Houston after recovering from lower-body strains.
"He steps right back in with a couple of base hits," John Farrell exclaimed to the Boston Herald. "We all know the start and stop of his season. To have another guy in the bottom of the order right now with his base-stealing ability, the base-running ability, two base hits against a right-hander today, very encouraging."
Fresh off the DL, Red Sox RF Shane Victorino to start Saturday

|(7/4/15) Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino will be in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Astros.
Victorino was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Friday's game against Houston but did not play. He was sidelined with a hamstring injury and has not played since May 23.
In just 55 at-bats this season, Victorino is hitting .255 with one home run and three RBI.
Red Sox activate Shane Victorino from DL

|(7/3/15) Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Friday's game.
Victorino has been sidelined since late May with a hamstring injury. He hit .231 on a minor league rehab assignment.
Victorino is expected to platoon with Alejandro De Aza in right.
“[Victorino] as we all know, brings a tremendous amount of energy,” manager John Farrell said per WEEI. “He talks the game, he’s always seeing game situations as they unfold on the field and talking it in the dugout. I know Vic feels more comfortable in speaking his mind when he’s active and on the field and contribution. His in-game decisions are outstanding. And defense in this ballpark in right field, he plays it as good as anyone has played it. And we’re looking forward to having that back.”
Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (calf) could be activated on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/30/15) Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that outfielder Shane Victorino could return from the disabled list as early as Friday against the Astros. Victorino has been on the DL since late May due to a calf injury.
Farrell said Victorino and Alejandro De Aza could become platoon partners in right field once Victorino does return, according to WEEI.com.
"Hopefully Vic goes through these next two games and comes out of them in good fashion,” Sox manager John Farrell said, per the Boston Herald. “There's a chance we could see a little bit more of a platoon system working together with Vic and Alejandro, and then as the matchups provide, the way Alejandro has contributed on both sides of the ball, we're not going to lose sight of what he's done being available to us."
The lefty-swining De Aza as struggled to the tune of a .111 batting average (3 for 27) against southpaws this season. Meanwhile, the right-hand-hitting Victorino is 5 for 32 against right-handers this season.
Red Sox OF Shane Victorino doubles and scores in rehab game
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/25/15) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino had two hits in three at-bats during his second rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday. Victorino doubled and scored in the loss to Rochester.
Victorino has been on the disabled list since Memorial Day, and will likely not be back with the team until closer to July 4th, as he recovers from a calf injury.
|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.
