When Shane Victorino ran in the outfield yesterday under the supervision of the Red Sox training staff, he still was favoring his cranky left hamstring.

And so, for at least another few days, the Flyin’ Hawaiian will remain grounded.

Rather than beginning a minor league rehab assignment today, Victorino will continue to get treatment designed to allow him to run without worrying about exacerbating his injury. The Sox right fielder is eligible to be reinstated from the disabled list before Wednesday night’s game against the Texas Rangers at Fenway Park, but he won’t be ready by then.

“There’s been no setbacks; there’s no reaggravation of it,” manager John Farrell said last night before the Red Sox and New York Yankees waited out a rain delay to complete a three-game series at Yankee Stadium. “It’s just a matter of when he tries to get that explosiveness, he doesn’t have quite that confidence. And we’re honestly telling him to more gradually get into it.”

During the past month, Victorino has been in and out of the lineup because of lingering back and hamstring issues. He missed 11 games, including seven in a row at the end of April into May, because of tightness in his lower back, and has been absent since May 20 in Chicago when he injured his hamstring by trying to run from first to third on Dustin Pedroia’s two-out fly ball to center field.
