BOSTON -- Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino, who has been on the disabled list all season after straining his right hamstring in the final Spring Training game, went 0-for-3 in his first rehab game for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday. He played right field for six innings.
Victorino will get an off-day on Sunday and then play for Pawtucket again Monday and Tuesday. The Red Sox will re-evaluate his progress at that point.
Victorino was also slowed by a bout of the flu, which caused him to lose 8-12 pounds, while he was on the DL.
