PBR - According to several published reports, the Dodgers and Phillies appear close to finalizing a deal that will send Shane Victorino to Los Angles in exchange for 25-year-old reliever Josh Lindbloom and another player.

Victorino has been rumored to be dealt for a while and with today's deadline it appears he has played his last game as a Phillie.

Lindbloom provides an arm to a struggling Phillies bullpen. Through 47 2/3 innings this season the righty has a 3.02 ERA. His downfall, however, has been the homerun - surrendering nine so far this season.

A rule 5 pick in December of 2004, Victorino will become a free agent at the conclusion of the season. Lindbloom, meanwhile, won't become a free agent until 2018.
