The Phillies officially announced their three-year, $22 million agreement with outfielder Shane Victorino today.

Victorino, who had two years of arbitration remaining, batted .292 with 10 home runs and 62 RBI last season. In 607 career regular season games as a Phillie, Victorino has hit .289 with 44 home runs, 220 RBI and 102 stolen bases.

Victorino had asked for $5.8 million in arbitration, and the Phillies had offered $4.75 million. Catcher Carlos Ruiz is the final arbitration-eligible player the Phillies have yet to sign.

Victorino and general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. will be available at a noon news conference. More to come.
