Knee injury continues to sideline Victorino
Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino missed a second consecutive game on Friday because of an injured left knee.
Victorino, a St. Anthony High School graduate and two-time All-Star, underwent an MRI test before Friday’s game, the New England Sports Network reported.
“He came in today and we had a chance to look at the left knee and it is still a little bothersome for him,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said on the team’s website.
Victorino was hurt Tuesday, but stayed in that game and played Wednesday. The 33-year-old missed the first 22 games of the regular season because of a hamstring injury.
Victorino is batting .292 in 15 games this season, with no home runs, nine RBIs and eight runs scored. He was successful in his only stolen-base attempt of the season.
