Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino missed the first 22 games of the season with a right hamstring strain and that same issue has again landed on the disabled list. The Red Sox announced the move Saturday afternoon with Daniel Nava being recalled as a corresponding move.
Victorino re-aggravated his injury in his final plate appearance Friday night in Tampa Bay.
Victorino, 33, is hitting .242/.276/.352 (72 OPS+) with five doubles, one triple, one homer, 10 RBI, 10 runs and two steals in 21 games this season.
The Red Sox enter Saturday with an eight-game losing streak -- the club's longest since losing its final eight games of the 2012 season.
