Daily Red Sox Links: Clay Buchholz, Shane Victorino, Jackie Bradley

Today's links look at Jackie Bradley and Xander Bogaerts' confidence levels during their respective slumps, Heath Hembree's future role, and the necessity of Giancarlo Stanton. Clay Buchholz tried to make sense of this whirlwind season he's had. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal) Obviously (mostly) everyone wants the Red Sox to make a play for Giancarlo Stanton, but is he someone they absolutely need? (Patrick Mallon; Fire Brand of the AL) With Shane Victorino out for the year, is it possible we've seen the last of him in a Red Sox uniform? (Colby Guarino; Sox Space) Jackie Bradley is in the...

Shane Victorino thinks ahead

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Three days after having herniations removed from two discs in his lower back, a season-ending procedure from which it will take months to recover, Shane Victorino walked into Angel Stadium without assistance and carrying — wait for it — a backpack.A joke, or a new form of rehabilitation?

Confident Victorino visits clubhouse

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Three days after back surgery, how good was Shane Victorino feeling Friday? Good enough to show up at Angel Stadium wearing a backpack when he ducked into the clubhouse to say hello to his teammates, coaches and manager John Farrell. And good enough to declare that despite all he has been hearing about Yoenis Cespedes playing right field, he has no plans to surrender the position in 2015. “I have every intention of being the right fielder next year,” said Victorino, who qualified that remark by saying he’d play wherever he was asked.

Shane Victorino To Have Back Surgery Today

Shane In 2013 Post-Season ()Shane Victorino will undergo season-ending lower back surgery today to correct a problem that has limited him to just 30 games this year. After the outfielder received a corroborating second opinion about his back on Monday, he resigned himself to the inevitability of the procedure. Victorino was a major cog in the 2013 World Series Championship wheel and is still signed with the club for another year. The 33-year old's absence will allow Yoenis Cespedes to take over in right field—and give Allen Craig (when he returns from the DL) a clear shot at left field. We...

Shane Victorino set for season-ending back surgery

It's been a long time in coming, but Shane Victorino's season will finally end as the outfielder undergoes back surgery. Shane Victorino's injury-riddled season will end in predictable fashion: with the right fielder undergoing season-ending back surgery Tuesday. One of the key players in Boston's 2013 turnaround, Victorino's absence has been felt all season long. Never truly healthy, Victorino has appeared in just 30 games for the Red Sox this season, hitting .268/.303/.382 in 133 plate appearances, contributing to a year of disappointment from Boston's outfield. At this point, with focus...
