Shane Victorino missed the first 22 games of the season with a right hamstring strain and the Red Sox aren’t going to rush him back after he landed on the disabled list over the weekend with the very same injury.

According to Jen McCaffery of MassLive.com, Red Sox manager John Farrell said this afternoon that Victorino’s hamstring is responding to treatment. However, they plan to be “a little more cautious” with his timeline since it’s a recurring injury. As a result, he might need more than the minimum 15 days before coming off the disabled list.

With Victorino sidelined, the Red Sox are relying on a combination of Jackie Bradley, Jr., Grady Sizemore, Jonny Gomes, and Daniel Nava in their outfield. Boston’s outfielders entered play tonight with a .219 batting average, which is the lowest in the majors.

    Keep ‘eem out through June. He seems a little fragile and may not want to play an entire season.
