The Boston Red Sox have traded outfielder Shane Victorino and cash considerations to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge.
The last-place Boston Red Sox won’t be bailed out this summer the way they were back in August 2012, but they still may be able to get some relief ahead of Friday’s trade deadline.
The Red Sox have placed right fielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a tight left calf.
Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino left Saturday night’s game against the Angels in the third inning because of tightness in his left calf.
Shane Victorino’s two huge plays let the Red Sox hang around long enough to piece together an unusual ninth-inning rally.
Fred Toucher and Jon Wallach had a conversation Thursday morning about the glut of Red Sox outfielders, and how Allen Craig has largely been forgotten.
“I did a lot of listening, because I didn’t really get to talk much. There was a lot of talking there coming from Shane Victorino.”

Word travels pretty fast from Boston down to Fort Myers.
Felger and Mazz interpreted Victorino’s comments as a clear-cut calling for the Red Sox to trade Mookie Betts for Cole Hamels.
