BOSTON -- When Shane Victorino is healthy, he's a spark plug for the Red Sox on offense and is capable of handling Fenway Park's sprawling right field on defense. However, the 34-year-old has rarely been at full strength this season.
Victorino's injury woes continued on Sunday, when Boston placed him on the 15-day disabled list with a left calf strain. He had exited the previous night's game with left calf tightness after aggravating the muscle on a catch at the warning track during the third inning.
