Boston, MA – Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Red Sox activated outfielder Shane Victorino from the 15-day disabled list prior to Monday's series opener in Oakland.
Victorino will start in right field and bat seventh for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury on April 22.
The 34-year-old was batting .143 in 12 games prior to his injury. He was limited to just 30 games in 2014 due to hamstring and back injuries and underwent surgery on his back in August.
To make room for Victorino on the roster, the Red Sox designated infielder Luis Jimenez for assignment.
