Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Jeremy Affeldt has passed his physical, which was the final step in completing the 3-year ($18 million) deal. A formal announcement should be coming from the San Francisco Giants soon.
Multiple sources have told Schulman the Giants are fairly confident that they will sign infielder Marco Scutaro. The deal would likely be a two-year deal, and Scutaro isn’t looking to break the bank either. I believe 2-years for $12 million would be a good deal for Scutaro and the Giants.
Schulman also says outfielder Angel Pagan isn’t looking to sign quickly, as he’s sorting out several offers. The Giants can’t sit and wait forever, so they have already checked in on other free agent outfielders like Shane Victorino and Torii Hunter as insurance.
