Although his stiff left hamstring continues to improve, outfielder Shane Victorino sat out Thursday night’s series opener against the Indians and remains day to day, according to manager John Farrell.

Victorino has been out since leaving Monday’s 6-4 win over the White Sox.

Lower-back stiffness forced Victorino to sit seven games at the end of April. After he crashed into the right-field fence at Fenway May 12 against the Blue Jays, he had his ribs examined at Massachusetts General Hospital but didn’t miss a game.
