San Francisco Giants, Jeremy Affeldt Agree to Three-Year Deal

After days of rumors and speculation, the San Francisco Giants have made the deal with reliever Jeremy Affeldt official, as first reported by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman.

The deal is reportedly for three years and $18 million.

Affeldt did not give up a run in 10.1 innings of relief in the entire 2012 postseason on the Giants' way to a World Series title.

Affeldt is just one of the Giants' three key free agents this offseason. Marco Scutaro and Angel Pagan are expected to be a little harder to sign than Affeldt, considering Scutaro's outstanding end to the regular season and stellar postseason. Pagan is least likely to re-sign with the Giants, as he is expected to have several teams lining up for a speedy lead-off hitter that can play center field and hit for moderate power.
