HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Each time Shane Victorino walks up to the plate, Bob Marley's 'Three Little Birds' rings out across Fenway Park.

Now more than ever, the Maui native is hoping "every little thing is gonna be alright" as he may have already played his last game of the year.

After undergoing an MRI Saturday morning, the Red Sox outfielder learned that he may need back surgery, which would shut him down for the rest of the year.

The news comes a day after Victorino went to the disabled list for the third time this season.

He's only played 30 games in 2014 due to a nagging hamstring injury.

The 33-year-old tells mlb.com he will seek a second opinion and visit a specialist in Los Angeles in hopes of avoiding surgery.
