IT WAS 4 hours before game time at Citizens Bank Park when the hallway that leads from the home clubhouse to the dugout was empty and fairly quiet, too. But the closer you got to the Phillies' indoor batting cage, the music reeled you in. First it was Aretha Franklin's "I Say A Little Prayer. " Then it was a jazzier version of Otis Redding's "Stand By Me. " Beyond the sweet music of the greatest vocalists in music history was a more familiar ballpark tune: the sound of ball meeting bat. Domonic Brown was in his office.

BOSTON - This was supposed to be the week that Shane Victorino played the outfield again at Citizens Bank Park. It's not going to happen because the Phillies' former centerfielder landed on the disabled list Friday with a tight left hamstring. He thinks it's related to the back injury that forced him to miss time earlier this season. The bottom line is Victorino will not go to the plate or play in the field during the Phillies' four-game series against the Red Sox that starts with two games in Boston on Monday and Tuesday before moving to Philadelphia on Wednesday and Thursday.

SHANE VICTORINO'S Philly homecoming has been derailed. The Red Sox put the outfielder on the disabled list yesterday with a strained left hamstring. Victorino had missed three games since he was injured Monday against the White Sox. "I'm frustrated, but I think the overall understanding is it's probably better," Victorino told Boston.com. "I don't want to be that guy and play half a game and have something resurface and then somebody else has got to go and play for me. I'm just not that kind of player and that kind of stuff frustrates me. I never want to have to put somebody in that situation.

The Boston Red Sox made a slew of roster moves on Friday afternoon, putting outfielder Shane Victorino and third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the disabled list, activating catcher David Ross, pitcher Alfredo Aceves and infielder Jose Iglesias, and demoting Ryan Lavarnway. Victorino missed the last three games with a left hamstring strain, as manager John Farrell had been hoping to keep Victorino off the DL. His DL stint is retroactive to May 21. With a home series against the Phillies coming up on Monday, it looks as if Victorino won't make it into the lineup.

CHICAGO - Shane Victorino can't wait to get back to Philadelphia. It has been nearly 10 months since the Phillies dealt the popular outfielder to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a journey that continued on to Boston when he signed 3-year, $39 million contract in the offseason. Victorino returns to Citizens Bank Park - the scene of memorable personal and team triumphs - for the first time Wednesday when the Red Sox visit for a two-game interleague series. But first, Victorino's Red Sox host the Phillies on Memorial Day and Tuesday at Fenway Park.

SURE, HINDSIGHT is 20/20 (which is also what Roy Halladay's ERA would have been after a couple more starts), but we really could have done without Hunter Pence ripping three extra-base hits, including two homers, in the Giants' recent series against the Phillies in San Francisco. Look, we know that the business of baseball, more than anything, made the trades of rightfielder Pence and centerfielder Shane Victorino pretty much the only plays Ruben Amaro Jr. had as last season's trade deadline was approaching . . . and the Phillies' sixth consecutive playoff berth wasn't.

SAN FRANCISCO - If it wasn't for Hunter Pence, Cliff Lee may have very well shut out the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. In his first game against his former team, Pence tried to be a one-man wrecking ball in the Giants' lineup. He homered in his first at-bat and attempted to start a rally with an eighth-inning, leadoff double in his last at-bat. He went 3-for-3 and scored the only two runs San Francisco scored in a 6-2 defeat to the Phillies. "He looked good," manager Charlie Manuel said yesterday afternoon at AT&T Park.

NEW YORK - Last July, the Phillies shed Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence in two deadline deals and sought austerity in the outfield. They are paying their five outfielders a total of $3.4 million in 2013, and until Saturday's 9-4 romp over the Mets, the production matched the price. It dragged an offense carried by contributions from its veteran infield. Phillies outfielders ranked 29th in baseball with a .562 OPS before Saturday. They hit three home runs in the season's first 24 games, which tied for the fewest in the majors.

Watching the Phillies through the first three weeks of the season was a challenging exercise. The parts put together by general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. did not work in unison much of the time. A couple of four-run leads disappeared during the first homestand and the offense disappeared shortly after that, scoring a Marlin-esque 13 runs in a recent seven-game stretch. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Braves sprinted out of the starting gate and placed the Phillies more than a week's worth of games behind them with school still in session for another two months.

The Phillies' season is only 18 days and 16 games old, which is a point most likely to be made by people who have some incentive to remind us it's early. People like Ruben Amaro Jr. "We've played 15 games," the general manager said before Thursday's 4-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park, when they left the potential tying and winning runs in scoring position to end the game. "It's 15 games," Amaro repeated. "Somebody said we still have 90 percent of the season left.
