ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - The Boston Red Sox have placed right fielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list for the second time this season.
Victorino went on the disabled list both times with a strained right hamstring. He was sidelined from the start of the season until he was activated April 24. Outfielder Daniel Nava was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Also, designated hitter David Ortiz and first baseman Mike Napoli are out of Saturday's lineup because of injuries.
The flurry of activity took place before the Red Sox played Tampa Bay. Manager John Farrell says Ortiz has a calf injury. Napoli is still feeling the effects of flu-like symptoms that sidelined him Wednesday and Thursday in addition to hamstring, calf and finger issues.
