The San Francisco Giants have found the veteran shortstop that they were looking for. They’ve signed Ryan Theriot to a one-year non-guaranteed deal. The deal is reportedly worth $1.25 million and another $750,000 worth of incentives. @JonHeymanCBS: ryan theriot in agreement with #giants on 1 yr deal. gives them good veteran ss option. The team planned on going forward with Brandon Crawford but wasn’t sure if he was ready for the role as a full-timer. Crawford himself batted .204 with 3 homers and 21 rbi over 229 plate appearances. So can you blame them for seeking help? Theriot wasn’t that impressive in 2011 batting only .271 with 47 rbi, one homer and four steals over 483 plate appearances. Not impressive at all but a veteran was what the Giants and that’s what they got. I’d expect a platoon situation in 2012 with Theriot getting a majority of the starts early on. If Crawford’s bat heats up though then things can change quickly. addthis_url = 'http%3A%2F%2Fmyspo...
