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.
