BALTIMORE — Right fielder Shane Victorino is questionable for Opening Day Monday, leaving Red Sox manager John Farrell wondering what his lineup will look like.
Victorino strained his right hamstring running the bases in Saturday’s final spring training game. He accompanied the team to Baltimore, but returned to Boston Sunday morning for an MRI.
Team doctors are scheduled to give Victorino a full examination Monday morning at Massachusetts General Hospital. Farrell said Victorino could return in time for the 3:05 p.m. game Monday.
“There’s no roster decision. There’s no update to give you at this point,” Farrell said.
On Saturday, Farrell said that Jackie Bradley Jr. was on call in case Victorino is placed on the disabled list. The Red Sox, as required by major league rules, set their roster Sunday afternoon and Victorino was on it.
