San Francisco Giants Plan To Offer Hunter Pence Arbitration

In some of the least shocking news of the offseason – at least the early part of it, the Giants plan to offer Hunter Pence arbitration, this according to Jon Heyman:

not sure why this is being debated publicly. but the champion #SFGiants will offer pence arbitration. $13-14M, 1 yr works

The move is all but a formality considering what the Giants parted with to get Pence, though given his stats with the Giants – it’s a tough financial pill to swallow.

That said, Pence is still a career .285 hitter with pop and those don’t come cheaply. Pence will essentially take over Aubrey Huff‘s mini-albatross of a contract (Huff was making $11 million dollars this past season) and will play for a long term deal, assuming he and the Giants don’t come to terms on a lengthy deal of their own.

    Thats a lot of $$$ for a cheerleader. He hit better in Philly than in Frisco. Don’t let Pegan get away Sabean. You’ll be upsetting all of SF.
