The Boston Red Sox have signed free agent outfielder Shane Victorino to a three-year, $39 million deal, according to a report on MLB’s website.

The signing comes on the heels of signing free agent catcher Mike Napoli from Texas.

And like the Monday’s Napoli deal, this signing has yet to be officially announced by the Red Sox. The deal is pending a physical.

The 32-year-old former center fielder for the Phillies and Dodgers will most likely play right field as Boston already has Jacoby Ellsbury roaming center.

“In our ballpark, we’d like to have someone who’s played a lot of center in right field—if we can,” Cherington said. “There’s guys out there that have done both. If you play a lot of center field and play in different parks, there may be a little bit of an adjustment, but he can figure out right field at Fenway.”
