Victorino progressing, will need rehab games

PHILADELPHIA -- Shane Victorino has looked fine running during pregame warmups, but general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Victorino will need to play in Minor League games before returning.

Victorino has been on the disabled list since May 20, retroactive to May 19, with a strained right hamstring. He is eligible to be activated June 3, a date Amaro wouldn't rule out.

"It's possible, he's going to have to play, though," Amaro said. "He's going to really have to test it out. It's the biggest part of his game, so we gotta make sure he's 100 percent. I don't want this to be a re-occurrence."

Amaro was unsure where or when Victorino would start his rehab assignment.
