Ryan Theriot, San Francisco Giants Agree To One Year Deal, According to Report

According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the San Francisco Giants and veteran infielder Ryan Theriot have agreed to a one-year deal, giving the Black and Orange another veteran infield option along with Mike Fontenot and Freddy Sanchez.

Per Jon Heyman on Twitter.

As you can see, the Giants didn’t overpay Theriot, 32, who won a World Series ring with the Cardinals last season. He’ll round out the payroll to right around the $130 million the team had decided on, and gives them options with youngsters Brandon Crawford and Emmanuel Burriss, while replacing Jeff Keppinger who signed with the Rays.

Theriot is a lifetime .282 hitter, with a .344 OBP. He won’t be raking many out of th park, but gets on base rather well and will fit in nicely in a clubhouse with other LSU alumni like Mike Fontenot and Brian Wilson.

Along with the Cardinals, he’s also spent time with the Cubs and Dodgers.
