The World Champs have agreed to a new three-year deal with lights out relief pitcher Jeremy Affeldt, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. The deal will be in the neighborhood of $18mm Heyman adds.
During the regular season, Affeldt went 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA with a 8.1 K/9 in 67 appearances. Things didn't change in the postseason as he logged 10 1/3 scoreless innings for the Champs.
For his four year career in San Francisco, Affeldt has become Mr. Reliable (when he isnt't suffering from a freak accident), going 10-9 with a 2.73 ERA in 237 1/3 innings and 184 outings.
