Red Sox | Shane Victorino could need surgery

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:41:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) could need surgery that would keep him out for a lengthy period, according to manager John Farrell. The team is waiting to view Victorino's MRI results before making any further decisions. Victorino has already missed 71 of the team's first 108 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Like we said before, you shouldn't wait around for a healthy Victorino in standard mixed leagues at this point. Besides, his playing time might be shaky if he does return this year, for various reasons.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino has back issue

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:52:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) is expected to miss some time with a back injury.

Fantasy Tip: It seems likely that Victorino will go back on the disabled list, possibly as early as tomorrow. With the Red Sox adding two new outfielders at the trade deadline, playing time might be hard to come by when he returns. Victorino should probably only be stashed in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (undisclosed) could be headed back to the disabled list soon. He will "miss a little time," according to general manager Ben Cherington. OF Yoenis Cespedes will play right field and OF Allen Craig will be in left.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino just can't seem to stay healthy as he ages. Don't feel the need to hang onto him in standard leagues if he goes back on the DL. Jackie Bradley Jr. seems safe, for now.
