#SFGiants agree to terms on 3-year Major League contract with Pablo Sandoval
Don’t know the details, but initial reaction: I like this.
UPDATE: Baggs has the details:
Source tells me Pablo Sandoval’s contract is worth $17.15 guaranteed, plus incentives.
Love this move.
The Sandoval breakdown: $3.2 million this year, $5.7 million in 2013, $8.25 million in 2014. Takes him through all three arbitration years.
I’ll have more to say on this later…
Some more arbitration updates…
According to Baggs, the Giants reached agreement with Nate Schierholtz on a one-year deal worth $1.3M and $150K in incentives. Meanwhile, Tim Lincecum and the Giants have filed arbitration figures which, as expected, break the records that were held by Derek Jeter and the Yankees (from back in 2001).
The Giants avoided arbitration with Melky Cabrera and Santiago Casilla today, per Enrique Rojas from ESPN. Cabrera will make 6 million, which seems a bit higher than what was expected. Casilla will make 2.2 million with up to $200k more in incentives.
