Victorino activated; Swihart (toe) to 15-day DL

The Red Sox made a few roster moves prior to their weekend series with the Astros.

Shane Victorino was taken off the disabled list and added to the active roster, although he won’t start Friday night. He had been on the disabled list with a left calf injury since May 25. In a corresponding move, Blake Swihart (toe) was placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Right-handed reliever Noe Ramirez was selected from Triple-A Pawtucket for the active roster and in turn, outfielder Jackie Bradley was sent back down to Triple-A. To make room on the 40-man roster for Ramirez, reliever Zeke Spruill was designated for assignment.

Swihart had suffered the toe injury a few weeks ago and took a few days off, but wasn’t fully able to recover. He had played just once since Sunday. The 15-day...

A look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Thursday:

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (38-44): L, 14-2, vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Yankees)

— Boston outfielder Daniel Nava began his rehab assignment (sprained thumb), hitting in the two-hole as the DH and going 1-for-3 with two strikeouts. Nava, 32, was placed on the DL on May 28 after struggling through a .159 start to his season in Boston through 27 games.

Closing Time: Red Sox (19 hits) rout Jays

Don’t look now, but the Red Sox just finished a successful swing through the American League East with one of their most impressive bounce-back wins of the season.

It hasn’t made much of a difference yet in the standings, but the Red Sox are in no position to be worrying about first place. They just have to focus on making up ground on whomever’s in front of them, and on Thursday night in Toronto, they continued an encouraging trend with a 12-6 victory.

The win erases the sting of Wednesday’s 11-2 stinker that saw Rick Porcello author one of his worst starts of the season. More importantly, it allowed the Red Sox to take three of four from the Jays...
