May 8 - 9:07 AM

Shane Victorino (hamstring) isn't expected to return from the disabled list until the Red Sox travel to Oakland on May 11.

While he's first eligible to come off the disabled list on May 8, the Red Sox don't seem keen on the idea of him playing on the turf in Toronto, so they'll push him back a few days as a precautionary measure. He's expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.
May 3 - 5:52 PM

Shane Victorino (hamstring) could be held back a few days rather than being activated from the disabled list when first eligible on May 8.

The reasoning isn't because he's had a setback but rather is due to the Red Sox beginning a three-game series in Toronto on May 8. The club can delay Victorino's return until May 11 in Oakland so that he doesn't have to play on the Blue Jays' artificial turf. "The reports coming out of teams that have gone through there have been, it’s a new turf, and it’s extremely long, the blades of artificial grass," manager John Farrell said. "The depth of the crushed rubber is deep. It looks like some guys have had some negative effects on their legs after playing up there. So whether or not Vic is ready to be activated, which next Friday is the day, we’ll determine that when we get closer to it."

Shane Victorino (hamstring) could begin a minor league rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy owners won't miss Victorino much, as he was only hitting .143 prior to getting sidelined.
