Shane Victorino back in lineup after calf injury
Shane Victorino is back in the Cubs' lineup as the DH after being out with a calf injury.
There is no fantasy relevance with Victorino. Unless the rest of your outfield is injured, keep Shane on waivers.
Shane Victorino traded to Angels
Shane Victorino has been traded to the Angels for infielder Josh Rutledge, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.
This should be a good opportunity for Shane Victorino to play every day on a contending team. If Victorino stays healthy he could become a fantasy option.
Shane Victorino has two steals on Sunday
Shane Victorino went 1-for-5 with an RBI and two stolen bases in Sunday's loss to the Yankees.
Shane Victorino is in a platoon right now and playing three to four games a week. It looks like the Red Sox want to keep it that way to keep him fresh through the season. He is not playing enough to be fantasy relevant.
Shane Victorino is back in action
Shane Victorino went 2-for-4 with two runs scored on Saturday in the win against the Astros.
This was Shane Victorino's first action since coming off the DL on Friday. He had a nice game on Saturday but don't bother running to pick him up. He is in a platoon with Alejandro De Aza and could likely end up hurt again.
Shane Victorino has rehab delayed
Red Sox manager John Farrell said they are trying to get Victorino (calf) "through the final stages of physical testing" and have delayed the outfielder's rehabilitation assignment, the Boston Globe reports. Farrell said those final stages includes additional intensity and a lot of change-of-direction.
The Red Sox are taking their time with Shane Victorino's recovery from his calf injury. And when he is finally back with the team, he will probably be a part time or platoon player. Victorino's days of being productive for fantasy owners are over. If you have him stashed on the DL, he can be dropped.
