Found July 08, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino, who left Saturday's game with a left hamstring injury, was not in the lineup Sunday. As reported by Ian Browne of MLB.com, "He felt better when he came in today, particularly after the treatment he received here today," said manager John Farrell, "but he's day to day right now." Victorino plays aggressively, which has contributed to his nagging leg and back injuries he's had most of this season.   As long as Victorino  is out of the lineup, Daniel Nava should get the bulk of the playing time in right field. Victorino, who is a career .276 hitter with 93 home runs and 210 stolen bases, is batting .285 with 3 home runs, 21 runs batted in, and 9 stolen bases, in 59 games.

Squanderpalooza Results In Stunning Loss, 9-7

In Depth With Jarrod Saltalamacchia

Jarrod Saltalamacchia has come a long way behind the plate. “Salty” isn’t among the elite at his position, but he’s developed into a solid defensive catcher. He is certainly among the most cerebral. Once looked at as an offense-first backstop, he is playing a key role in the success of a Boston Red Sox pitching staff that is exceeding expectations. Originally a first-round...

Angels May Need Extra Help on Mound to Fend Off Red-Hot Red Sox (Video)

It’s no secret that the Red Sox are hot right now. They own the best record in the American League and the second best in MLB with 54 wins. That’s why the Angels’ pitching choice for Saturday night’s late-night matchup is so interesting — the west coast team could be setting themselves up for failure. NESN Nation’s Alison Smith breaks down why that is in the above video...

Four Real? Red Sox vs Mariners 7-8-13

Pete Lepak RedSoxLife Staff Writer Game 91: Sox lose a laugher 11-4 Ugh. It's just not getting any better for Jon Lester in 2013. Lester went 5+ innings, giving up five runs on nine hits in the loss to the Seattle Mariners. His ERA stands at a bloated 4.60. While many of the Red Sox starters are getting better, the former ace is getting worse. Yes, he was squeezed a bit by...

3 Stars of the Game: Game 90

Ryan MacLeod Contributing Writer The stage was set perfectly for the Red Sox to show America that they are indeed the best team in baseball, the Sunday Night game on ESPN. Its the game that everyone that is a baseball fan watches, and the Sox came out flat, getting only 5 hits in 9 innings, scoring 0 runs. Lackey pitched well, a good showing from him back in his old stomping grounds...

Preparing for sleep deprivation

I hate Red Sox West Coast road trips. Like, I really, seriously LOATHE West Coast road trips. I’m one of those people who’s really finicky about my sleep schedule, to the point that I’ll ditch my friends to go home and sleep. But as you all know by now, I’m also extremely serious about the Red Sox, and I’m willing to sacrifice a consistent sleep schedule for a few days...

There are inevitably going to be a lot of rumors leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, and this one is rather vague.

Sox top Padres

I missed the first eight and a half innings of tonight’s game because I was in class: graduate school started yesterday and we’ve hit the ground running. Of course, I surreptitiously monitored the progress of the Red Sox as consistently as possible, and was thrilled every time I checked in by the excellent start from John Lackey. You can’t script it any better than this: the...
