The San Francisco Giants are set to sign free-agent first baseman/outfielder Xavier Nady to a minor league deal, as first reported by Andy Martino of New York Daily News. Andrew Baggarly of Comcast SportsNet Bay Area confirmed Martino's report, adding the deal is pending a physical.

The 33-year-old Nady was released by the Nationals last Sunday. In 102 at-bats this season, Nady struggled mightily, batting just .157/.211/.274 with three home runs over 40 games.

Purely speculating, but I would figure the deal has an out clause that would allow Nady to opt-out of his contract if he isn't on the team's MLB roster by an agreed to date.
