Shane Victorino was back on the field at Fenway Park on Sunday for the ninth annual Futures at Fenway game, along with his teammates at short-season Class A Lowell.
Victorino played five innings, going 0-for-2 with a walk, as he continues to rehab from hamstring and back injuries. He's 0-for-6 in his rehab assignment for Lowell, and manager John Farrell said Victorino could be back with the Red Sox as early as Friday.
Kevin McAvoy started the game, a 6-1 loss to Mahoning Valley, by throwing two scoreless innings before Simon Mercedes added another five shutout frames. James Shepherd got the loss, giving up four runs in 1 2/3 innings.
Danny Mars, Jordan Betts and Mauricio Dubon each had two hits for Lowell. The only other Spinners player to record a hit was Mike Meyers.
