Red Sox's Victorino confident he can play every day in the field
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino said emphatically Friday he is capable of playing every day, just six months removed from back surgery and having to abandon switch-hitting due to durability concerns.

"Just because I haven't done it here doesn't mean I'm not ready," Victorino said, per CSNNE.com. "[Thursday] was my best day, physically. I feel like everything's going in the right direction, physically -- my legs, running. I feel like I can go everyday, but obviously I have to show it here or show the consistency of it.

"We've only got, what nine days or so [remaining], so I'm sure the next week or so is going to be a test. But I feel I can do it. I kind of turned the corner in the last few days, from a physical standpoint. I'm starting to feel good. The last few days have meant big strides in terms of bouncing back and feeling good the next day.''

Victorino has played back-to-back days this spring just once, and the second day he was the DH. Victorino is aware he needs to show manager John Farrell he can handle playing in the field on consecutive days without any issues.

"I'm not going to go in there and say, 'John, I need to go from Game 1 to Game 162,'' Victorino said. "But I've got to prove in these next 8-9 days. I've got to prove I can go back-to-back days or three in a row. That will be a test for myself, too.''

Victorino blasts radio hosts for implying he wants Betts traded
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino was not a happy man Thursday.

Victorino spent time with the media Thursday lashing out at sports radio hosts Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti for suggesting Victorino was advocating trading top prospects for Phillies ace Cole Hamels, in his comments to the Philadelphia Daily News.

"All I said, a question was asked of me about getting Cole Hamels," Victorino said, per the Boston Herald. "I said, 'Hey, if you can go get Cole, I'll be all for it.' Nothing against everybody in this clubhouse. I said from Day 1, I'll be fine with what we have. We can go win with what we have. But if you can add another element of a guy who's been there, I said, why wouldn't you? And that's the part for me is they took it obviously as me, and the names that were attached to these (rumors), I never mentioned anybody's name. I said, 'If you can give up two or three prospects, could be anybody, could be a second-, third-tier guy, my whole career I've watched that."

Although Victorino didn't mention any players by name, the radio hosts accused Victorino of lobbying the Red Sox to trade Mookie Betts, who is competing for the starting job in center field this spring. Felger also accused Victorino of "throwing your young players under the bus."

"You have a 34-year-old, breaking-down outfielder whose job is potentially going to be taken by whom? Mookie Betts, or by default, Rusney Castillo," Massarotti said. "And so who are we talking about, potentially, in this trade? Mookie Betts. So is that the deal? Mookie Betts is going to take his job, (and Victorino says), 'Hey, get the kid out of here, because we can win now if we get Hamels.'"

Victorino seemed really upset Betts' name was mentioned since he is a big fan of the 22-year-old outfielder.

"If there's one person that's an advocate of that individual who was named in the article, Mookie Betts, it's me," Victorino said. "I don't have any fear or feel like there's competition that I've got to get him shipped out of here. That's the part for me, where individuals put words in your mouth, that sit behind a mic and say something, you know where I'll be. I'll be more than happy to talk to you about it. But don't get behind a mic and be a coward and try to put words in my mouth, because not once in that article did I mention anybody's name."

Red Sox to trim down loaded outfield soon
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox are expected to trim down its crowded outfield soon, with less than two weeks before Opening Day, according to MLB.com on Tuesday.

"We have to take these remaining days in camp here and determine what's best for us as an organization," said Farrell. "I'm not suggesting there's player movement anywhere, but there's only going to be three [starting] spots."

At this point, it appears as if Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts have left and center field locked up, respectively. Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino, Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig are all in the mix for the final spots.

"And there's six guys -- well, there will be five guys in that group to handle those three spots, with two guys coming off the bench. What that means for the final Opening Day roster remains to be seen.

"We're just trying to get more exposure to Rusney in right field; we need to get a better gauge on Vic's durability, if we can, over the coming days. We acknowledged from the first day in camp, the outfield, there's going to be a lot of focus on our outfield.

"That pretty much hasn't changed, but what we've seen are some really encouraging things. And that's how quickly Rusney's come back and shown decent timing at the plate [and] what Mookie's done in center field speaks for itself."

Red Sox's Victorino focused on staying healthy in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters Saturday outfielder Shane Victorino was giving up switch-hitting because it was taking its toll on him physically. Victorino said as much Monday when talking with WEEI.com, pointing to statying healthy as his No. 1 priority for 2015.

“Physically everything is going good, and that’s the most important part for me,” said Victorino, who has played just 152 regular season games the last two seasons. “It’s not about being lefty or righty or being a switch-hitter. I want to be healthy. That’s the most important thing for me. Whatever is going to get me to play 162 games.

"Obviously I hope to play 162, although I doubt they’ll look at it that way. From my standpoint, things have come along. I tried but I felt there were some physical setbacks that were starting to kick in and everything was happening on the left side. So I said, ‘Let’s not make it worse.’ I felt like it was getting to that point, and that’s why I made the decision to be a right-handed hitter.”

Victorino added he feels confident he can return to being a productive everyday player.

“This year I feel like I’m healthy going into the season, knock on wood," he said. "Hopefully nothing changes. But the way I feel now, and where I’m at, I feel confident I can go out there and be an everyday player and hit solely right-handed."

Red Sox's Victorino gives up switch-hitting, will bat right-handed
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino has abandoned switch-hitting because of soreness when he hits from the left side and will bat exclusively from the right-side, manager John Farrell said Saturday.

“You want the most productive at-bats, regardless of which side they come from,’’ Farrell said, per ESPN. “In Vic’s case, it was starting to take its toll, just the reps he was going through, to try to get the left-handed swing productive. In terms of the work, it was starting to be counterproductive, the way he felt physically. That’s the rationale for hitting right-handed."
