Shane Victorino just can't seem to stay 100 percent healthy. After going back awkwardly on a fly ball in the top of the third inning of Saturday's game against the Angels, the right fielder was removed from the game prior to his at-bat the next half-inning. The team announced it as left calf tightness. Following the game, manager John Farrell said he is day-to-day and will be reevaluated Sunday morning. "If there's anything more to that we'll know in the morning when we check him out," Farrell said. He had missed the previous two games with "general soreness" centered around the left calf. Since the start of the 2014 season, Victorino has played in just 50 games. For more Red Sox news, visit
