San Francisco Giants Sign Nate Schierholtz To One-Year Contract

In a day chock full of signings for the San Francisco Giants, they avoided arbitration with another member of the team as outfielder Nate Schierholtz was signed to a one-year $1.3 million contract to remain with the Black and Orange.

Per Giants beat writer Andrew Baggarly via Twitter:

This was Scherholtz’s first time eligible for arbitration, and made himself a simple deal to remain with his the tem he started with. Nate batted a decent .278/.326/.430 with nine home runs and 41 RBI in 2011, and showed some of his sneaky speed seven stolen bases.

Nate will vie for playing time in the outfield with newcomers Angel Pagan and Melky Cabrera, but is seen as a likely candidate to be a starter this season for San Francisco.
