30-year old switch hitting Shane Victorino will be getting dirty in CF for the Philadelphia Phillies again in 2011. Victorino played in 147 games for the Phillies last season and he was 152 of 587 (.259 avg, .756 OPS) with 84 runs scored, 18 homers, 69 RBIs and 34 stolen bases. From 2006-2010, Victorino has averaged 87.2 runs scored, 12.0 homers, 56.2 RBIs and 27.2 stolen bases per year as he has been a consistent force offensively for the Phillies and I look for that to continue in 2011. Victorino only had 2 errors in 143 games in CF with showing slightly above average range. Victorino also showed off a rifle from CF as he had 11 assists there last year. Victorino is the guy who makes everything go both offensively and defensively for the Phillies.
Ben Francisco, Cory Sullivan and John Mayberry can give Victorino a break if he ever needs one in 2011.
PROJECTED GRADE FOR THE PHILLIES CF IN 2011: B+
