BOSTON -- Rehabbing outfielder Shane Victorino (hamstring) is expected to play seven innings in right field for Triple-A Pawtucket Tuesday night. He is still expected to rejoin the Red Sox at some point during their West Coast trip this week.
General manager Ben Cherington offered an update on recently-signed outfielder Andres Torres.
“He’s been with Lowell. He’s working himself into baseball shape,” he said. “He didn’t get a spring training -- he was working out but wasn’t really doing full baseball activities so we’re still in that phase of getting him ready for games.”
Cherington said Torres is weeks, not months, away from getting in his first games. The Red Sox signed the 36-year-old Torres on June 12. Torres ended last season on the disabled list with a strained Achilles’ tendon that required surgery.
