Ailing Victorino expected back in left Tuesday
CINCINNATI -- Shane Victorino missed all three starts against the Reds with a strained left wrist, but manager Don Mattingly said he expects Victorino back in left field for the Padres series that starts Tuesday night.

"Vic's better," Mattingly said. "He could swing left-handed, which tells me [he] is still not right. I'm counting on him being ready Tuesday."

Mattingly said Victorino can pinch-run and play defense.

"We have him partially," he said. "He can't hit right-handed."

Victorino was injured running into the fence in Washington on Thursday night.
