Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants Agree To One-Year Deal

According to a report for CSN Bay Area the San Francisco Giants and left handed pitcher Madison Bumgarner have agreed on a one-year deal, though the terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle noted that the one-year deal is likely similar to the one Buster Posey signed before the start of last season with Posey making around $575,000.

Some speculate that the Black and Orange might try to ink Bumgarner to a longer deal this spring, but the contract negotiations with Matt Cain may have played a role in how they're deal with the 22 year old. The Giants now have until March 11 to determine the salaries for other players not arbitration eligible yet.

Bumgarner earned $450,000 in 2011, owning a 13-13 record along with a 3.21 ERA and 191 strikeouts in 204.2 innings pitched.
