According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports, the Los Angeles Dodgers are close to completing a deal that will send outfielder Shane Victorino to the Dodgers. Jayson Stark of ESPN adds that the Dodgers will send Josh Lindblom and a second player.
Yesterday, we learned that the Dodgers and Reds were the last two standing in the Victorino's sweepstakes. The 31-year old outfielder is hitting .261/.324/.401 with 9 HR's, 40 RBI's and a 94 OPS+ in 431 plate appearances with the Phillies this season. Lindblom, 25, is 2-2 with a 3.02 ERA, 1.7 HR/9, 3.4 BB/9 and 8.1 SO/9 in 47.2 innings with the Dodgers in 2012.
