Red Sox place Victorino on disabled list


BOSTON, MA - Prior to today's season opener in Baltimore, the Boston Red Sox placed outfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to March 30) with a right hamstring strain. To fill his spot on the 25-man roster, outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Executive Vice President/General Manager Ben Cherington made the announcement.

Victorino, 33, suffered the injury while running the bases in Saturday's Grapefruit League finale against the Minnesota Twins in Fort Myers, FL. In 10 games this spring, he batted .250 (7-for-28) with three doubles, one RBI, and three runs scored.

Bradley, 23, went 9-for-57 (.158) with four doubles, one triple, five RBI, and two runs scored in 19 Grapefruit League games this spring, his second straight year in major league camp. He began the spring with 15 appearances in center field and played his last three games in right field.
