Red Sox | Shane Victorino could return Friday

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell hopes to have OF Shane Victorino (back) back in the lineup Friday, May 3. "That's the tentative plan," Farrell said. "Whether or not he's coming out of BP tomorrow and he's available for tomorrow night's game remains to be seen. But optimistically we're looking at Friday at Texas."

Fantasy Tip: If Victorino doesn't return this weekend, expect Boston to place him on the disabled list. The Red Sox are being very cautious and want to make absolutely sure that he's 100 percent healthy before bringing him back, to avoid a situation like what happened with Kevin Youkilis in New York.
