Jeremy Affeldt contract with Giants now official

Jed Jacobsohn

Reliever Jeremy Affeldt signed his new contract with the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

The San Francisco Giants officially inked pitcher Jeremy Affeldt to three-year deal on Wednesday, the team announced in a press release. While Senior Vice President and General Manager Brian Sabean did not disclose the size of the deal, SFGate.com reports the contract to be worth $18 million.

Last year was Affeldt's fourth in a Giants' uniform, and upon becoming a free agent the reliever said that he wanted a multi-year deal to provide financial stability. He also lives in his hometown of Spokane, Wash., and said that he wanted to remain close to home.

Affeldt, a left-hander, went 1-2 and posted a 2.70 ERA for the World Series champions last season and was with the team when it won the 2010 title. In four total years with the Giants, the 33-year-old has gone 10-9 with a 2.73 ERA along with 10 saves in 17 opportunities. He has a 36-37 record in his 11 years in the MLB.

Affeldt missed time due to two off-the-field injuries last season, but he still pitched in 63.1 innings.
