Clay Hensley, San Francisco Giants Agree To One-Year Deal

According to the San Jose Mercury News the San Francisco Giants and right handed reliever Clay Hensley have agreed to a one-year contract for the base salary of $750,000, with the possibility of another $300,000 in playing incentives and possible awards.

The deal is pending a clean bill of health from the physical exam.

Hensley, 32, owns a career 24-29 record, including a a 3.94 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in six seasons in the league with the both the San Diego Padres and the now Miami Marlins. He was non-tendered by the Fish in December after posting a 5.19 ERA and 46/30 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings for them in 2011.

Most Giants fans will remember Hensley as the pitcher who gave up Barry Bonds’ 755th home run in San Diego, tying Hank Aaron’s record. I know I will, I was there. But that’s neither here nor there. He can hopefully turn it around a bit with the Black and Orange.
