Red Sox place Shane Victorino on disabled list


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) The Red Sox placed right fielder Shane Victorino back on the disabled list with a calf injury. Victorino left Saturday's game in the third inning after stumbling while fielding a fly ball, due to the injury.

"I’m not saying he fought this, but, at the same time, he’s frustrated," manager John Farrell said, per the Providence Journal. "He’s disappointed. But it's kind of hard to plan inning to inning rather than game to game."

Infielder Jeff Bianchi was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket, where he was hitting .302, to replace him on the roster.

Victorino was making his first start since May 17. The team has not provided an update on his status, though he should be considered day-to-day for now.


Red Sox RF Victorino back from calf injury, to start against Angels


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino could be expendable now that his team promoted Rusney Castillo from Triple-A, but he will play a role on Saturday against the Angels.

Victirino, who was day-to-day with soreness in his calf, will get the start against the Angels.

Since returning from the disabled list on May 11, Victorino has eight hits in just 19 at-bats.


Red Sox manager: Castillo, Betts, Victorino to rotate in CF and RF


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) Red Sox manager John Farrell says Rusney Castillo will be used in a rotation between right field and center field. Castillo, who was promoted from Triple-A on Friday, will share playing time with both Shane Victorino and Mookie Betts, according to the Boston Globe

Victorino, who is not in Friday's lineup against the Angels, is considered day-to-day with soreness in his left calf. He was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup and has not gotten much playing time since returning from the disabled list on May 11. Though, he has hit well in the seven games since his return, with eight hits in just 19 at-bats, including a double and a home run.

Betts, meanwhile, has been struggling mightely at the plate in his sophomore season. He's batting .205 (8 for 39) with just one extra-base hit over his last 10 games. 


Red Sox RF Shane Victorino scratched from Thursday's lineup


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rangers. Victorino was initially penciled in to play right field and bat sixth, but he has been replaced by Daniel Nava, who is batting eighth.

Manager John Farrell said Victorino was scratched with "general soreness localized to left calf". He is hopeful Victorino will be able to return in a day or two, according to the Boston Herald.

“You know you’re going to have to run him out there a few days, back off even on days where he feels like he’s capable, almost to protect him from himself," Farrell said. "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.”

Over his last 13 games, Nava has hit .100 (3 for 30) with a double, two RBI and six walks, lowering his batting average from .240 to .164 on the season. Victorino has hit .533 (8 for 15) with a double, a home run and three walks over his last six appearances (four starts). Victorino is hitting just .156 against righties this season.

Red Sox's Farrell on Victorino: 'He's probably 90 percent or so'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino (hamstring) returned from the disabled list Monday and went 0 for 4 at the plate, but he's expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday against lefty Drew Pomeranz despite not being 100 percent, MLB.com reports.

"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. "All those things are on the table and have been discussed."

Victorino has hit .128/.277/.154 in 39 at-bats.

Victorino is currently on a minor league rehab assignment, recovering from a hamstring injury. He's expected back Monday. 

"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."

Hamstring injury frustrates Red Sox OF Shane Victorino


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) After sustaining a hamstring injury during Wednesday's contest, which will keep him out of a few games, Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino admits the injury came out of nowhere, reports WEEI.

"There were no signs. Zero," he said. "That's where the biggest frustration comes from. No signs. I would feel a lot better if there was a sign that suggested it was tight or I felt something in there. Nothing. I felt great. The saw him do a big leg kick and I thought I could take the bag. But then I feel it when I start to slide and dive and I'm like, 'What the heck?' It's definitely not what I felt last year. It's in that same area, and that's the part where my conscious is saying, 'Damn, again?'" 

Victorino did take solace knowing the injury is not as severe as it was last season. 

"It definitely doesn't feel [as bad as before]," he said. "I think I'll be fine. My goal is that I would love to play this weekend. I'm hoping that it heals. It's definitely not what I felt before, but it still worried me because it's the same area."

He was able to hit off a tee Friday, but he has not been cleared to do any intense running, reports the Providence Journal

Farrell sticking with struggling Red Sox OF Victorino


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Red Sox veteran outfielder Shane Victorino hasn't had two hits in a game since April 9 and is coming off back surgery, but John Farrell is sticking with him as a starter.

"He's a good baseball player," Farrell told the Boston Herald. "We've got to stay a little patient."

The 34-year-old Victorino figured regaining his timing would take time. He has played in 11 of his team's 14 games and owns a .147 average and .293 on-base percentage. But he also ripped a double off a 94-mile-an-hour on Tuesday that provided encouragement.

"That was good, that was the swing," he said. "You feel rushed because you're trying to get your timing, feel like you have to get out front. so that's something I'm working on, letting the ball travel, or laying off the slider, letting the slider get a little bit deeper before I start my approach. That's all part of seeing balls, getting into a rhythm and getting my timing at the plate."
