Red Sox | Shane Victorino sits for doubleheader

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) was not in the starting lineup for the second game of the doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, April 21. He missed the opener, but said he felt improved from Saturday, April 20. "He feels improved from yesterday and last night," manager John Farrell said. "Yet there's still some tightness in the lower back. He's day-to-day, so we'll have him to sit out and he'll continue to get treatment."

Fantasy Tip: Victorino doesn't appear to be a candidate for the 15-day disabled list, which is good news, but he is still a question mark for fantasy owners heading into the new week. If you have healthier alternatives, use them.
