Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr announced that they have agreed on a three year deal with centerfielder Shane Victorino. The contract is worth $22 million and it will run through the 2012 season.

Victorino who made his first National League All-Star team last season batted .292 with 10 home runs, 39 doubles, 13 triples, 62 RBI's and 25 stolen bases.

The signing of Victorino comes one day after the Phillies agreed to a three year deal for $24 million dollars with starting pitcher Joe Blanton.

Victorino was seeking $5.8 million in arbitration.  The Phillies had countered with $4.75 million.

Next up for the Phillies is to try and come to terms with catcher Carlos Ruiz on a multi-year deal.
