Mike Napoli tried to play through a dislocated finger he suffered back in April, but now the Boston first baseman finds himself the latest member of the Red Sox to land on the disabled list.
The Boston Red Sox announced Saturday that the team has placed outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.
Changes are coming for the Red Sox lineup, and who could help from down on the farm?
Shane Victorino had three hits and knocked in four runs, and David Ortiz homered and doubled in the Sox win.
Shane Victorino had four hits and his first two RBIs of the season, John Lackey pitched eight strong innings and the Boston Red Sox beat the slumping Tampa Bay Rays 7-4 on a chilly Tuesday night.
Third baseman Will Middlebrooks has been activated off the 15-day disabled list and is in the lineup for Boston’s game against the Blue Jays on Friday night.
The Boston Red Sox outfield is about to get a boost, and hopefully every little thing is gonna be alright.
Not a huge surprise here, but Daniel Nava is being sent down to Triple-A and Alex Wilson is being recalled.
Shane Victorino is expected to start a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend, with the Red Sox hoping the outfielder can make his season debut sometime next week.
The Red Sox did in fact get some great news on Monday, learning that both Dustin Pedroia and Koji Uehara will avoid a stint on the disabled list.
