Reports: Dodgers close to trade for Phillies' Shane Victorino

The Los Angeles Dodgers are close to a trade for Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino, according to reports by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman and FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

The Dodgers acquired reliever Brandon League from the Mariners on Monday, which many believe was a prelude to another deal.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the Phillies were prepared to make a "flurry of moves" before Tuesday's 4 p.m. trade deadline. Cliff Lee is among the other Philadelphia players who could be moved.

Victorino would help the Dodgers fill out their lineup. The 31-year-old outfielder, a former All-Star and Gold Glove winner, is hitting .261 with nine home runs this season.

A trade for Victorino could end -- or at least hurt -- Los Angeles' chances of acquiring Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster. Potential talks between the two teams have recently included Alfonso Soriano, but it would seem unlikely the Dodgers would add another outfielder.

It's possible the two sides could reach an agreement without Soriano, but the Dodgers, who acquired infielder Hanley Ramirez earlier this month, could also decide they are finished reworking their roster.
