Giants sign reliever Scott Proctor

Jim McIsaac

The former Yankee workhorse will get a Spring Training invite after spending 2012 in South Korea.

The Giants have signed relief pitcher Scott Proctor to a minor-league deal and have invited him to Spring Training, according to Andrew Baggerly of CSN Bay Area. The word came from his agent that the 36-year-old former Yankee, Dodger and Brave had decided to return to the states to pitch after spending 2012 with the Doosan Bears in South Korea.

Proctor led the majors in appearances in 2006 when Yankees manager Joe Torre pitched him 83 times for a total of 102.1 innings. The right-hander had Tommy John surgery in 2009 following a brief stint with the then-Florida Marlins. Failed comeback attempts in Atlanta and New York led Proctor overseas for 2012.

The Giants have put a lot of money into their bullpen over the last two seasons to keep an elite unit performing at a high level, but Proctor will cost pennies and will provide depth to a traditionally volatile position.
