Red Sox have big decision when Shane Victorino returns - The Boston Globe | Baseball | Scoop.it

CHICAGO — Was the big pow-wow between general manager Ben Cherington and Jackie Bradley Jr. in the dugout runway between the dugout and the clubhouse Tuesday here a sign that Bradley Jrmay be going back to Pawtucket when Shane Victorino returns, or was it simply an attaboy for the fine defense the rookie has played and an indication endorsement that the team was committing to him? We’ll likely find out for sure this weekend after Shane Victorino has completed his rehab assignment for Pawtucket. This is a fairly big personnel decision for the Red Sox. When Victorino returns from a right hamstring strain the Red Sox will have an inventory issue. They will be back to a the six-players-for-five-spots scenario.
