Red Sox hopeful to get Shane Victorino back in a week
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino is getting healthy enough for a return that the team believes he could rejoin the team next week in Oakland, according to the Boston Globe.
Victorino, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a hamstring injury, is working through his rehab program and could be back as soon as May 11. He is hitting .143 with two RBI in 35 at-bats this season.

Hamstring issue lands Red Sox OF Shane Victorino on DL

|(4/25/15) Red Sox veteran outfielder Shane Victorino has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury, the Boston Globe has reported. He has not played since batting once Wednesday.
It has been a tumultuous season for Victorino, who barely earned a starting role out of spring training and has struggled at the plate since. He did not manage more than one hit in a game after April 9, after which he has been 2-for-27.

Daniel Nava starts in place of Shane Victorino for Red Sox

|(4/24/15) Shane Victorino was left out of the Red Sox's starting lineup on Friday, for the second straight game. Victorino is battling a hamstring injury.
In his place, Daniel Nava will start in right field and bat seventh.
The Red Sox are 1.5 run underdogs at Baltimore.
|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.
