The Boston Red Sox activated OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 24.
Fantasy Tip: Get Victorino back into your starting lineups. Grady Sizemore's playing time could be affected the most by Victorino's return, but he should at least be a semi-regular part of the lineup.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said the club views OF Grady Sizemore as a better fit for a corner outfield spot than in center field. Sizemore, however, isn't as comfortable in left or right field as he is in center yet.
Fantasy Tip: Jackie Bradley Jr. is a much better option in terms of defense and range. Sizemore's brittle past and more advanced age play into this thinking; there's a chance this may affect Sizemore's PT as the year goes on, but even after Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns, he'll remain at least a semi-regular part of this lineup, especially following Daniel Nava's demotion.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) may not be activated Wednesday, April 23, because the team's bullpen is taxed and they may need another arm, according to manager John Farrell. SP Jon Lester went only 4 2/3 innings Tuesday, April 22, a day after SP Clay Buchholz lasted only 2 1/3 innings. Victorino is 1-for-11 in three games with Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: The latest Victorino would be activated would probably be later this week or this weekend. Be ready to activate him and get him back into your starting lineup when he returns to Boston.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, April 23.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what the outfield alignment will be on a day-to-day basis when Victorino returns, but Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. could see less consistent at-bats, as well as Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes. Bradley could also be sent down, since he has minor league options remaining.

Fantasy Tip: Things will get a bit interesting with the outfield alignment when Victorino returns. John Farrell will likely go with Jackie Bradley Jr., Grady Sizemore and Victorino most often if he values defense first. That means Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes will lose some value.
