|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.
|Shane Victorino bracing for possible surgery |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/2/14) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is set to receive a second opinion on his back injury, but it appears he is more concerned about it than he has previously let it.
"We kind of know what's going to happen," Victorino told the Boston Herald Saturday, when asked about the potential for surgery.
Victorino will receive a second opinion on his back in Los Angeles next week, in order to determine if he will be able to avoid surgery. If surgery will be required, he told reporters he would prefer to have it sooner rather than later, though no timeline for a decision is currently known.
|Shane Victorino lands on disabled list |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/1/14) What was expected is now official - the Red Sox have placed right fielder Shane Victorino on the disabled list with a back issue.
Victorino has been sidelined for extended periods three times this season. He has been limited to 123 at-bats and has compiled an uncharacteristically mediocre stat line of .268/.303/.382 with just two home runs.
|Shane Victorino to 'miss little time' due to back issue |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/31/14) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is expected to "miss little time" due to a back injury, general manager Ben Cherington told reporters, per NESN on Thursday. A stint on the disabled list remains likely for the veteran outfielder.
Victorino was removed from Wednesday's game because of the injury. The GM said that his time off will be used to get Yoenis Cespedes acclimated to right field, Allen Craig to left field. Victorino owns a .268/.303/.382 slash line with two home runs and 12 RBI in 123 at-bats.
|The move to the American League was a fortuitous one for Shane Victorino, as he matched a career-best in batting average (.294 -- equal to his 21-game stint in 2005) and hit 15 home runs for just the third time in his career. And this was with Victorino playing just 122 games. Victorino was especially good at Fenway Park in 2013, hitting .322, with an .850 OPS in 60 games. He was pretty consistent throughout the year in most batting categories, but his power spiked in August, when he hit nearly half (seven) of his season's home runs. Throw in his 21 stolen bases (the sixth time in the last seven seasons with 20-plus steals), and Victorino -- if he can stay healthy -- could flirt with a 20/20 campaign in 2014. He's a solid mid-round pick in most formats.
