Red Sox sign Shane Victorino to three year deal worth $39 million

Shane Victorino is the latest free agent to sign with the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox ranked at the bottom of the AL East last season and are out to make sure that does not happen again in 2013.

Victorino will join Mike Napoli who also signed a three year deal worth $39 million days ago.

The Red Sox will use Victorino in right field next season. He hit .255/.321/.383 with 11 home runs, 55 RBI and 39 stolen bases in 154 games split between the Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers last season.

There were no shortage of teams interested in signing Victorino as multiple teams had offered three the 32 year old a three year deal. Though its doubtful that many of them could provide the money and chance to play on a contender.
