Giants - Signed Affeldt
San Francisco Giants - Signed P Jeremy Affeldt to a 2-year contract.
The terms are undisclosed, but I’m guessing that the total value of the contract is in the $7-$10 million range.
I hate to be complimentary towards Brian Sabean, but now that the team’s actually trying actually trying to rebuild, they could compete in a very weak division in the near future and Affeldt is a solid building block in a bullpen that doesn’t really have a few dominant relievers that they can rely on heavily. Affeldt’s low ERA isn’t a product of being a LOOGY either, as Affeldt has always been able to get righties out as easily as lefties during his major league career, though admittedly, some years, he didn’t get either batter out.
Affeldt’s now had two full seasons in a row as a full-time reliever with no March ambiguity as to his role on the pitching staff. He throws his effective curve a lot more than he used to and it’s done nothing but help his very good, but not great, fastball. I expect Affeldt to continue to be good and probably the best member of the Giants bullpen.
