The reported Shane Victorino signing may not mean the Red Sox are done signing free-agent oufielders. The Red Sox could still trade Jacoby Ellsbury, according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe. If Ellsbury is moved, that would push Victorino to his more natural position — center field — and reopen the possibility of signing Cody Ross, Josh Hamilton, or another free agent right fielder. The Red Sox have been busy at the MLB winter meetings, reportedly signing Mike Napoli and Victorino to matching three-year, $39 million contracts. Ellsbury dealt with a shoulder injury in 2012, and played in just 74 games. He hit .271 with four home runs and 26 RBIs. Ellsbury was coming off the best season of his career in 2011, when he had a .928 OPS, while hitting 32 home runs and 105 RBIs.
