Red Sox | Shane Victorino dealing with physical issues
Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:36:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino needed some extra recovery time this spring when he felt "soreness" in his lower body, and more recently, he had to give up switch hitting because he had soreness while hitting left-handed. It could serve as a reminder that Victorino will be limited this year, although manager John Farrell said he'll start in right field when healthy. One evaluator doesn't think Victorino would be able to play more than four times a week to start the year. There's an outside chance that he could start the season on the disabled list to buy him more recovery time.

Red Sox | Allen Craig making case for spot
Tue, 24 Mar 2015 15:34:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Allen Craig is hitting .276 in 36 spring at-bats, and he's looking more comfortable in his recovery from a Lisfranc injury to his left foot in 2014 that left him hitting just .128 in 29 games with the Red Sox after a summer trade. OF Shane Victorino is expected to be the starting right fielder, if healthy, but the team is still evaluating his readiness in camp. OF Daniel Nava is a lock for a roster spot as the main lefty bat off the bench. Craig may be out of a chance for a spot unless OF Rusney Castillo (oblique) opens up in the minors. "He's in great shape, and the foot's not an issue. He's taking better swings and having more consistent at-bats. (That time) beyond spring training is going to get here. I don't know how else we can go about it," manager John Farrell said.
