Shane Victorino has reportedly signed a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies worth around $22 million dollars late Thursday.

The Phillies were quick to try to come to a deal in order to avoid arbitration with one of their more clutch offensive players and better defensive players on the team.

Victorino's numbers improved slightly in 2009.

He finished the regular season with a .292 batting average, 10 HR and 62 RBI.

Victorino has won his second straight Golden Glove award in 2009 along with his teammate, Jimmy Rollins, who won his third straight.

"I take a lot of pride in fielding my position," Victorino said in a statement to the press.
