Shane Victorino Traded to Dodgers From Phillies, Philly.com Says

July 31 (Bloomberg) -- Outfielder Shane Victorino was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers from the Philadelphia Phillies, who received relief pitcher Josh Lindblom and minor-league starter Ethan Martin, Philly.com reported.

The swap came on the final day before Major League Baseball’s trade deadline. The Dodgers are 56-48 and tied with the San Francisco Giants atop the National League West. Philadelphia is 45-57, 16 1/2 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East.

Victorino, 31, has played his last eight seasons in Philadelphia, helping the team reach the playoffs the past five and win a World Series in 2008.

A two-time All-Star, Victorino is batting .261 this season with a .324 on-base percentage, nine home runs and 40 runs batted in. His 24 stolen bases are tied for ninth in the major leagues.

Having also played a season with the San Diego Padres, Victorino has a career .277 batting average with 88 homers, 394 RBI and 186 stolen bases.

Lindblom, a 25-year-old right-hander, was 2-2 with a 3.02 earned run average in 48 appearances for the Dodgers this season, striking out 43 while walking 18.

Martin, 23, was 8-6 with a 3.58 ERA for the Dodgers’ Double-A Chattanooga team this season, making 20 starts.
