Player: Shane Victorino, Philadelphia Phillies
Stats: .254/.317/.392, 8 HR, 38 RBI, 37 R
It's been a disappointing year for the Phillies to say the least, as the team has dealt with injuries to more than one superstar player and have struggled to a 41-52 record as a result.
A free-agent-to-be, Victorino had emerged as one of the best all-around outfielders in baseball over the past four seasons with an average line of .281 BA, 15 HR, 62 RBI, 96 R, 28 SB, but his numbers are down this season.
Still, a .254 BA, eight HR, 38 RBI, 21 SB line is respectable, and Victorino was no doubt pressing a bit in the absence of Chase Utley and Ryan Howard, trying to pick up the slack.
The Reds are in serious need of a productive top-of-the-order player to get on base ahead of their sluggers, and were named as a potential fit by CBSSports' Danny Knobler, who also listed the Dodgers and Yankees as teams who made sense.
Jon Heyman also reported that the Dodgers have shown interest, and that the Indians, Pirates and Tigers as other possibilities.
