Angels acquired OF Shane Victorino and cash considerations from the Red Sox in exchange for INF Josh Rutledge.
The Red Sox are sending $3.8 million to the Angels, so the Halos will be responsible for just $1.1 million of Victorino's salary. The veteran outfielder has been limited to just 33 games this season due to injury and that's after injuries held him to 30 games in 2014. Victorino is also hitting only .245/.324/.298 in 2015 and is really only a fourth outfielder at this point, but he should play plenty in left field given how bad the Halos have been at the position.

In the eighth, he reached on a fielder's choice and stole second base but was stranded again.

Shane Victorino went 2-for-4 with two runs scored on Saturday against the Astros.

The Red Sox could activate Shane Victorino (calf) from the disabled list as early as Friday against the Astros.

Victorino went 1-for-4 in Sunday's rehab game for Triple-A Pawtucket. The Red Sox want to see him play in back-to-back games before activating him.

He is expected to return to the Red Sox early next week, and could log considerable time in right field with Rusney Castillo back in Triple-A, though with Alejandro De Aza playing well, he'll have to hit to remain in the lineup against right-handers.

Shane Victorino (calf) is starting a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rusney Castillo was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday afternoon, so there will be less of a crowd for playing time when Victorino returns.

Shane Victorino (calf) is scheduled to perform a series of baserunning drills over the weekend.

He will then be reevaluated on Monday. If he comes through everything smoothly, Victorino could be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment.

"Continues to ramp up," Farrell said. "I'm not able to commit to a start day for an assignment, but that's nearing." Victorino has been on the disabled list since May 24 with a strained left calf. It sounds like he'll be ready to rejoin the active roster before the end of June.

The Red Sox had been hoping he'd be ready for game action this week, but that's not the case. "We’re trying to get him through some final stages of physical testing," manager John Farrell said. Victorino looks poised for a late-June return and could win back some playing time in right field with Rusney Castillo getting off to a slow start.
