The Indians were one of at least two teams bidding for the services of outfielder Shane Victorino. The Red Sox have inked the 32 year old to a three-year, $39 million dollar contract.
“The Boston Red Sox reached a three-year, $39 million agreement with free-agent outfielder Shane Victorino on Tuesday, according to a source with direct knowledge of the negotiations.
The deal is pending a physical.
The terms of the agreement are exactly the same as the deal Boston reached with free-agent first baseman/catcher Mike Napoli on Monday.”
According to the Plain Dealer’s Paul Hoynes, the Indians offered Victorino a four year deal worth $44 million.
