Shane Victorino punches in

Shane Victorino came to Fenway Park yesterday, causing manager John Farrell to say, “it was almost like Christmas morning,” as the right fielder prepared for his first game back in a Red Sox uniform since injuring his hamstring in spring training.Victorino isn’t Santa Claus coming down the chimney, but the Red Sox hope he delivers better production and stability to the top of the batting order.

Shane Victorino activated: 'The weight of the team is not on my shoulders'

By occupying the second spot in the lineup, Victorino allows Dustin Pedroia to take over at leadoff, a spot he could stay in if the Red Sox finally find a lineup that works.

Farrell likes Pedroia, Victorino at the top

BOSTON—The always understated Shane Victorino went to Twitter Thursday afternoon to share the news that he would be in the Red Sox lineup for the first time this season that night. Got your singing voices ready, Red Sox Nation? Back here tonight. @ShaneVictorino Yes, Victorino and Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds” (“Everything’s gonna be all right’’) make their 2014 Fenway Park debut against the Yankees Thursday night, Victorino having missed the team’s first 22 games with a strained right hamstring.

With Shane Victorino in No. 2 spot, Red Sox hoping to achieve offensive stability

When it comes to whether the Red Sox have missed Jacoby Ellsbury, the proof is in the team's .183 average (17-for-93) and .267 on-base percentage out of the leadoff spot. But that tells only half the story of the Sox' top-of-the-order problems.The other half -- the absence of Shane Victorino -- ends tonight.

Shane Victorino could return to Boston Red Sox Wednesday against New York Yankees

Will Middlebrooks is also rehabbing in Pawtucket and could return from his grade one calf strain in time for the weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Notes: Victorino, Middlebrooks close

BOSTON -- Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, according to manager John Farrell. Victorino was scheduled to play his third rehab game with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday night. He is 1-for-7 in two games so far, showing no issues with the hamstring strain that sent him to the DL just before the season began. The move will create a logjam in the outfield for the Red Sox, with the struggling Daniel Nava one candidate to be sent down to create room for Victorino.
