John Boggs To Represent Shane Victorino

MLB agent John Boggs will represent Shane Victorino, ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick reports (on Twitter). The free agent outfielder recently left ACES and had been talking with agents about his representation options.

Victorino posted a .255/.321/.383 batting line with 29 doubles and 11 home runs in 666 plate appearances for the Phillies and Dodgers in 2012. The 31-year-old won't receive a qualifying offer and isn't expected to return to the Dodgers as a free agent. Teams such as the Reds and Braves could be interested, however.

Victorino would be a nice stopgap for the Reds until Billy Hamilton is ready.

The Reds already moved Billy Hamilton to CF.

o wow didn’t know that that’s a great move by the Reds, but Reds would be better off going with a lefty to platoon with Stubbs like Juan Pierre also a lot cheaper
Billy Hamilton could also be up sometime next year

Pierre can’t play CF though.

Victorino will end up with the Braves to replace Bourn

I’m kind of hoping so, though PHI looks to be in for him, also. I’d take a shorter deal on Victorino over a longer deal for Bourn/BJ Upton.

Centerfeild in Arlington (TEX) would be a good fit.

I could actually see that. I’ve been saying that a deal between Rangers and Phillies is going to happen. I could actually see the Rangers going after Lee and Ruiz. Then, signing Victorino and dangling Martin, Olt, etc. for both of them.

Agreed… It has been a long time since the Rangers had a true leadoff hitter…. Centerfeild is a hole, with Martin/Gentry being the only real options that are currently on the 40. Victorino could fill both, while signing a shorter term, less expensive deal than what it would take for Bourn or BJ Upton.
Ruiz – Could of very well been on the radar as well. G Soto is the only current option…. But it appears that Ruiz has now had his option picked up by the Phillies.

Don’t really see Victorino as a ‘true lead-off hitter’. A .321 OBP this past season, thats no lead-off hitter. He is not getting any younger. Just because a guy is fast and small doesn’t mean he is a true lead-off hitter. I like him as a player and he could lead-off but he wouldn’t be my first choice. Kinsler certainly not an ideal lead-off hitter either so Victorino could be a nice fit there.

I think he fits perfect in ATL. He would have to lead-off there also. Take your pick.

I am not sure Victorino’s numbers last year is a true reflection of his skills. With the injury situation in Philly being what it was last year with Utley, Howard, and even Ruiz, Shane was asked to be a different type of player than he was normally accustomed to. He went from a top of the order guy whos main focus was scoring runs to a middle of the order type who was asked to drive in runs… Big difference, but understandle given the Phillies needs last year. After the trade to the Dodgers, he (among other Dodgers) never seemed to be able to get anything going. Put him in TEX (or even ATL), in the leadoff spot, i bet he still outproduced 1/2 of the leadoff men in baseball even at 32 years of age.

Washington perhaps?

Orioles would be a good fit….they need LF and lead-off guy.
