Video: Uehara Tries to Speed Up Victorino’s Trip to the DL

On Friday, the Boston Red Sox made a flurry of moves, sending Ryan Lavarnway down to activate catcher David Ross from the 7-day disabled list, and calling up Jose Iglesias and Alfredo Aceves in response to placing Will Middlebrooks and Shane Victorino to the 15-day disabled list.

For Red Sox reliever Koji Uehara, Victorino’s trip to the DL seems to be exactly what he was looking for.

I know, I know, it’s hard to believe the exuberant Uehara could wish such ill will upon his teammate, but how  else do you explain this video?

The only rational explanation I can come up with for that clearly malicious high five? Uehara must have been trying to concuss Victorino and have him take Ross’s place on the 7-day DL, allowing him to return sooner than he now will be able to having been put the 15-day DL with a left hamstring injury. Now that I think about it, this 2013 Red Sox team really is bonding! The things they’re willing to do for one another.
