Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Red Sox OF Victorino having MRI

The SportsXchange

Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino injured his right hamstring in Saturday's spring training finale and he was scheduled to have an MRI.

Manager John Farrell said Victorino's status for Monday's season opener is questionable, according to ESPNBoston.com.

Farrell said Jackie Bradley Jr., who was sent down to Triple-A Pawtucket, could be called back up if Victorino needs to be replaced.

Victorino will fly with the team to Baltimore for the opening series against the Orioles but will be evaluated in Boston on Sunday.

Jonny Gomes, the Red Sox's fourth outfielder, would likely start in place of Victorino if he cannot play.
