Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino was forced to begin the season on the 15-day disabled list due to a right hamstring strain and it sounds like he won’t be ready when he’s first eligible on April 15.
Victorino hasn’t suffered a setback with his hamstring, but he hasn’t been able to do much recently due to a nasty bout of the flu. According to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, Red Sox manager John Farrell said Victorino did some cardio work and received treatment today. The hope is that they’ll have a better idea about a possible minor league rehab assignment by the end of the week.
Jackie Bradley, Jr. was originally ticketed for the minors before Victorino’s injury, but he could make it a tough choice for the Red Sox if he continues to swing a hot bat.
