Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Phillies have traded outfielder Shane Victorino to the Dodgers for right-handers Josh Lindblom and Ethan Martin.

Victorino is back where it all started, as he was originally drafted by the Dodgers back in 1999. The 31-year-old outfielder will wrap up his tenure in Philadelphia with a .279/.342/.434 batting line, three Gold Glove awards, two All-Star appearances and a World Series championship over eight seasons. He figures to take over the starting left field job in Los Angeles and may get a look out of the leadoff spot. Lindblom will join the Phillies' bullpen right away while Martin could be an option for the rotation in the near future.

Giants acquired OF Hunter Pence and cash considerations from the Phillies for C Tommy Joseph, Nate Schierholtz and RHP Seth Rosin.

The NL West is getting more interesting by the minute. Pence, 29, is hitting .271/.336/.447 with 17 home runs, 59 RBI and a .784 OPS in 101 games played this year. He'll take over the starting right field job and should be a nice upgrade for an offense which ranks 26th in the majors in runs scored. He's under team control through 2013, but should see a sizable raise from his $10.4 million salary for 2012. Jul 31 - 2:12 PM
