Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (calf) could be activated on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/30/2015) 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 switch-hitting Victorino is 5 for 32 against right-handers this season.

"I wouldn’t say he’s hit a wall. It’s been an involved program and stages of programs, and the intensity continues to ramp up. There’s a lot of change-of-direction work being accomplished. How he comes out of the more strenuous days, the medical staff isn’t ready to say, let’s go to the next step, which would be a game."


Red Sox will work Shane Victorino back slowly on rehab stint


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

"This is a little bit of an unforeseen one, but ideally you walk in the clubhouse every day knowing that there’s 25 guys at your disposal and that’s not always the case.”

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"He's probably 90 percent or so," Farrell said. "And that final 10 percent is more about durability and endurance from game to game. We know there's still a ramping up phase we're in, but he's had success against these two left-handers and we're looking forward to him being on the field."

A former switch-hitter, Victorino is now hitting right-handed exclusively and will see most of the starts in right field against left-handers moving forward.

"We had that conversation before unfortunately he went on the disabled list. We've had a chance to talk a few times about what he will be, or what his role coming back and the player he is right now, particularly with him being on one side of the plate and not switch-hitting," Farrell said.

"When Vic gets back to us Vic is going to get the left-handed starters if not more," Farrell said, per WEEI. "But Jackie’??s arrival here gives us a premium defender. Certainly like him against a lot of right-handed pitching so we’??ll find the right matchups. I’??m not going to say it’??s a strict platoon situation by any means but I think it’??s important for us to find when we’??ve got a situation or matchup we’??ve got to take advantage of."
