San Francisco Giants Sign Ryan Theriot to 1-Year, $1.25M Deal

The San Francisco Giants have signed shortstop Ryan Theriot to a 1-year, $1.25 million deal with another $750 thousand in incentives, according to Jon Heyman. The deal follows speculation that Theriot could land with a number of teams, most recently rumored to be the Phillies. At the end of the year, we were hearing rumors that teams like the Mets, Braves, and Rays could all be looking at him.

Theriot, 32, played the majority of his 7-year career with the Chicago Cubs before landing with the Dodgers at the end of 2010 and then with the Cardinals in 2011 for their championship run. Theriot is a career .282 / .344 / .353 hitter.

    "Though Theriot better fits defensively as a second baseman, he has a great shot at significant playing time at shortstop for the Giants. The only person standing in his way is Brandon Crawford, who hit just .204/.288/.296 last season, which is dreadful. Crawford could then fit well as a late-inning defensive replacement, as he's the superior defender. It's just that the Giants need the most offense they can get from any spot."
