Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) did sprints and other drills under team supervision Thursday, May 23. They're not itching to put him on the disabled list, but they'll consider it if Victorino's inactivity drags on.
Fantasy Tip: A Victorino absence could mean more solidified time for Daniel Nava and Mike Carp, potentially even the return of Jackie Bradley. Stay tuned.

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) has no timetable for his return, but the team is still hoping he can avoid a trip to the disabled list. "Today was a big day as far as his status and improvement that he's showing," manager John Farrell said. "Our plan was to kind of re-evaluate where he's at tomorrow and then go from there."
Fantasy Tip: If you own Victorino, a trip to the DL is entirely possible and could be likely at this point. He's been dogged by nagging injuries this year, and it would give him a chance to rest and get right. Daniel Nava's PT should increase the most in the interim if Victorino misses much more time.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) had more tightness in his hamstring Tuesday, May 21, and won't return until he's symptom-free. "Right now, we still think this is a short-term thing, but we've got to let this continue to subside," manager John Farrell said. It's unknown at this point if Victorino will have to land on the disabled list, and they likely won't make a decision for another few days.
Fantasy Tip: Victorino just can't seem to stay healthy after dealing with a lower back problem recently, too. Keep him on your bench until he's ready, but you'll also have to prepare for him to land on the disabled list. Have backup options at your disposal. Daniel Nava will benefit the most from increased playing time if Victorino goes on the DL.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell is sticking with OF Jacoby Ellsbury at leadoff even though he is 3-for-24 through seven games of the team's nine-game road trip. Farrell was considering dropping Ellsbury down, but OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) has been dealing with multiple injuries. Victorino is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 21. "We're sticking with (Ellsbury) to hopefully give him the opportunity to come out of the situation that he's in right now," Farrell said. "But I can say this: Whether he's hitting first or whether he's hitting somewhere else in the lineup, there are still things that we need to address, that he needs to address, and those are ongoing." Ellsbury has just three walks in his last nine games and hasn't homered in 162 at-bats, but Farrell doesn't think Ellsbury is swinging too hard.
Fantasy Tip: Be patient with Ellsbury during his slump, and if you have to, sit him on the bench until he comes through it. As Scott Lauber points out, Ellsbury's power was slow to develop during his MVP-caliber 2011 season, as well, so there is still plenty of time for him to get his timing down.
