Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (undisclosed) was taken to a hospital after slamming into the outfield fence Sunday, May 12, but his tests came back negative, according to a baseball source. Victorino expects to play in the team's next game Tuesday, May 14. "With the way Shane hit the wall, he started to stiffen up as the game went on," manager John Farrell said. "Given what he's been dealing with lower back-wise, we weren't going to take any chances further today."
Fantasy Tip: Victorino missed time last month with a lower back injury, so the team will be cautious not to bring him back too soon. However, Victorino's new ailment doesn't appear to be serious enough to keep him out for long.

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.
