Red Sox RF Victorino put on disabled list

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - The Boston Red Sox put right fielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right hamstring.

The World Series champions made the move before Monday's opener at Baltimore. Jackie Bradley Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket and Daniel Nava started in right field against the Orioles.

Manager John Farrell says Victorino has a Grade 1 strain and that the injury "is going to require some down time."

Victorino was hurt while running the bases Saturday in Boston's final exhibition game. The move is retroactive to Sunday, the day an MRI revealed the strain.

The 33-year-old Victorino won a Gold Glove last season and hit .294 with 15 home runs, 61 RBIs and 21 stolen bases. He also got the big hit that helped Boston break open the clinching Game 6 of the World Series against St. Louis.

Bradley hit .189 in 37 games last season.
