SEATTLE -- Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino, who had been slowed for a few days by soreness in his right hamstring, resumed his Minor League rehab assignment on Monday by going 0-for-3 for Class A Lowell.

"Yeah he's got two to three at-bats with Lowell today. He'll have three to four at-bats tomorrow with Pawtucket and then we'll reassess where things are," said manager John Farrell. "We've got to make sure that as it gets through tonight, tomorrow's game activity will hinge on how he gets through tonight. But that's the tentative plan right now."

Victorino could return for this weekend's three-game series at Yankee Stadium, which starts Friday.

"It is a possibility, yes," said Farrell.

Meanwhile, third baseman Will Middlebrooks was scratched from Monday's game for Pawtucket with swelling in his right index finger.

Middlebrooks was placed on the disabled list with a fracture of that finger on May 17. He is making good progress and the swelling was believed to simply be the result of having five at-bats on Sunday.
