The San Francisco Giants have just crossed three players off their arbitration eligible list. Chris Haft of MLB.com says the Giants have signed outfielder Angel Pagan to a one-year, $4.85 million contract on Monday. Pagan was traded to the Giants in exchange for Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez. Pagan is likely going to be the starting center fielder and bat leadoff.
Enrique Rojas of ESPN said (via twitter) the Giants have avoided arbitration with Melky Cabrera. It’s reported as a one-year deal for $6 million. Cabrera was obtained by the Giants in a trade that sent pitcher Jonathan Sanchez and minor league pitcher Ryan Verdugo to the Royals. Cabrera is likely going to be the starting left fielder.
Rojas also sent out another tweet saying Santiago Casilla has also inked a deal with the Giants for one-year, $2.2 million (plus 200K in incentives). Which crosses off three players on the Giants arbitration list.
The remaining arbitration eligible players on the Giants list are Tim Lince...
