Shane Victorino rumors: Indians, Red Sox, Giants

The Cleveland Indians are one of the several teams, also including the Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants, who have interest in free agent outfielder Shane Victorino.

The Cleveland Indians are one of the several teams, also including the Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants, who have interest in free agent outfielder Shane Victorino, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

Rosenthal adds that the market for Victorino is "not fully defined" at this point. Even after B.J. Upton reached his free agent contract with the Atlanta Braves, several other center field options remain on the market that could be viewed as superior to Victorino, including Michael Bourn and Angel Pagan.

While Victorino is one of the players the Red Sox and Giants are considering, the Indians have "serious interest" in the center fielder, reports Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald.

After his career-year in 2011, during which he hit .279/.355/.491 with 29 doubles, seven triples, 11 home runs and 39 stolen bases in 45 attempts, Victorino slumped in 2012. He finished the season with a line of .255/.321/.383 over a combined 595 at-bats with the Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Over nine years at the major league level Victorino, who turned 32 in November, has hit .275/.341/.430. He's seeking a three-year contract this winter at about $10 million per season, according to Lauber.
