BoSox's Farrell: We're a better team with Shane Victorino on the field
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) With the Red Sox looking at a crowded-outfield situation, general manager Ben Cherington said veteran outfielder Shane Victorino is determined to bounce back from August back surgery, per WEEI.com.
“I think a motivated Shane Victorino out to prove something is a very good thing, for him and the Red Sox,” Cherington said Thursday. “So, I’m just excited to see him. I think we’ll see him later this week. We know what kind of player he is if he’s healthy and on the field.
"He’s certainly done all he needs to do this offseason. When it comes to getting baseball reps, that’s another level, another element he has to incorporate and getting into the everyday routine of spring training. But he seems anxious, so that’s good.”
Manager John Farrell said Victorino's health will determine how he plans to use the 34-year-old outfielder in 2015.
“That’s going to be dependent on what his capabilities are from a physical standpoint,” Farrell said. “We’re a better team if he’s on the field every day as was the case in 2013. That’s not to take anything away from anyone else on our roster. He’s doing everything he can right now to be a player of that capacity.”
Shane Victorino: 'I should be the starting right fielder' for Red Sox
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/28/14) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino believes he should be the team's starting right fielder in 2015 amidst a crowded group of contenders, WEEI.com reports.
"If you think there’s somebody better in right, be my guest," Victorino said. "Obviously health will dictate that. But if I’m healthy if there’s a better outfielder in right field then show me and go out there and do it. I’m not saying that in a cocky or arrogant way. It’s just how confident I am to know I should be the starting right fielder. There are things to come into play and situations to be discussed.
"I plan on being healthy and out there and ready to go. Like I said, it’s my job. I don’t think there’s anybody can tell me differently. If they feel there is from an organization’s standpoint it is what it is. As I’ve said, whatever uniform it may be I’m going to go out there and give 100 percent and be the best I can be. Obviously I want it to be a Red Sox uniform and be a right fielder, but I can’t control decisions that are made from up top."
Victorino will swing a bat Monday for the first time since undergoing back surgery. "Everything feels great," he said. "There hasn't been any setbacks."
Red Sox activated Shane Victorino from 60-day DL

|(10/31/14) The Red Sox have activated outfielder Shane Victorino from the 60-day disabled list.
Players can't remain on the 60-day DL during the offseason in order to shore up 40-man rosters. Victorino had back surgery in August. He can return to the 60-day disabled list near the start of next season if he still needs to recover.
Shane Victorino moved to 60-day DL

|(9/8/14) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday, to clear room on the team's 40-man roster. He remains out for the season following back surgery.
Shane Victorino undergo successful back surgery
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(8/5/14) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino underwent successful lumbar disectomy surgery on his injured back Tuesday, the team announced.
Victorino will miss the remainder of the season while recovering, but he's expected to be ready for spring training next season. He ends 2014 with a .268/.303/.382 line, two home runs, 12 RBI and two stolen bases in 123 at-bats.
|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.
