HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Flying Hawaiian is heading back to the east coast.

The Boston Red Sox have reportedly agreed to a three-year deal with Maui's Shane Victorino.

MLB.com reports that the Red Sox have not confirmed the deal, which is pending a physical.

The deal is reportedly worth $39 million.

While the 32-year-old St. Anthony's grad has been a center fielder for most of his career, reports indicate he would likely shift to right field for the Red Sox.

Boston's offer to Victorino was first reported by The Boston Globe.

Victorino who played for the Philadelphia Phillies and Los Angeles Dodgers hit .255 with 11 homers and 55 RBIs in 2012. He also stole 39 bases.

Victorino, a 3-time Gold Glove winner, is on Maui vacationing with his family and new Red sox teammate Clay Buchholtz.
