Shane Victorino Signs With The Red Sox For $39 Million Over 3 Years
Shane Victorino has become the latest addition to the Red Sox as they look to rework their team after a failed season. According to MLBTR, Victorino has signed a three-year deal worth $39 MM, pending a physical. He was previously ranked, on MLBTR, as their 12th best free agent this offseason.
The $13 MM per year surpasses the average that Angel Pagan got over his four year deal, which should no doubt be an interesting conversation starter. The Flyin’ Hawaiian broke into the league with the Padres, but is best known for his time with the Phillies from 2005 – 2012. He was traded during last season to the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he finished with his lowest average over a full season as a pro. He is coming off a .255/.321/.383 campaign, but he was a model of consistency with the Phillies and that likely contributed to this contract.
Victorino joins Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes, and David Ross as the new additions to the Red Sox.
