Philadelphia Phillies' Victorino runs to first base as Boston Red Sox pitcher Lester fields a bunt during a MLB spring training game in Clearwater Reuters

The amount of high profiles injuries this spring was absurd. Now it’s carrying over into the regular season.

From MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki comes word that Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino had to be pulled from the club’s Saturday evening tilt against the Astros due to soreness in his left calf.

Victorino collided with fellow Phillies outfielder Ben Francisco in the top of the fourth inning while chasing down a fly ball. The team isn’t saying yet whether that collision caused the injury, but it’s probably a safe assumption.

Victorino finished 2-for-3 as Philadelphia’s leadoff hitter. He was replaced in the sixth inning by John Mayberry and told reporters after the game that he doesn’t expect to miss much time.

    I think he’ll be fine Charlie didnt seem to concerned. Anyway its still early and resting him a few days wont hurt.

      Your team is two years removed from a championship. Why are you so filled with hate? And poor plays on words?

        Ari, this jacka$$ is just a troll making unprovoked shots at me. Pay him no mind. I’m not feeding any more into his need to get a rise out of me anymore. Have a good one, Ari.

        “i just hate all teams from PA, nothing personal”

        actually harry, you just hate. I can’t recall a single post of yours that wasn’t odious in some way. In person you must be powerless and thus feel it necessary to crap on people here who have done nothing to you. Get a real life and try out a sense of humor sometime. Nothing personal
