Red Sox | Another setback for Shane Victorino

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 13:18:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back, hamstring) is dealing with more back issues and will not start his rehab assignment Wednesday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Here we go again. The Flyin' Hawaiin won't be back before the All-Star break and now may not be ready to return immediately after, either. The longer Victorino is out, the more it benefits Mookie Betts.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts out of lineup

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 15:31:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts is out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday, July 7, and it's the third time in the last four games he hasn't started. However, manager John Farrell said Betts would be "on the field regularly" this week with the team facing lefties on three straight days. Betts is 4-for-19 in five games since being called up. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. has been heating up at the plate, making it harder for Betts to find playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Betts has also been shaky in center field as he converts from being an infielder in the minors. When Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns from the DL after the All-Star break, there's a chance Betts is sent back down.
