Victorino to Boston

Wed., Dec. 5, 2012, midnight

Free agent outfielder Shane Victorino and the Boston Red Sox are close to completing a three-year deal worth $39 million, a person familiar with the talks told the Associated Press on Tuesday. The person, speaking at the baseball winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn., under condition of anonymity because the contract wasn’t finalized, said paperwork for the contract was being completed. Victorino hit a combined .255 with 11 home runs and 55 RBIs last season for Philadelphia and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also stole a career-high 39 bases. The Dodgers obtained Victorino in a late July trade with the Phillies. A two-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner, Victorino turned 32 Friday. – Associated Press
