Analysis: The 34-year-old Victorino is a two-time World Series champion, a two-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove winner. He has spent the past three years in Boston, batting .245 in just 33 games this season with two stints on the disabled list. He broke down in tears in a press conference after Boston's 10-8 loss to the ChiSox on Monday in an emotional moment.

Analysis: He had been sidelined since April 25, retroactive to April 23, with a strained right hamstring that he injured April 22 against the Tampa Bay Rays. Manager John Farrell says Victorino will get breaks as needed to keep him fresh and healthy, and ''we want Shane to go out and play as he's capable.'' Certainly everybody hopes Victorino's bat could give the Red Sox a boost.
