SF Giants Rumors

Cody Ross Re-signs One Year Deal With San Francisco Giants

By Bryan Rose

According to Ken Rosenthal’s twitter, the San Francisco Giants and Cody Ross avoided arbitration Tuesday by agreeing to a one-year, $6.3 million contract.

The $6.3 million dollar salary will be a $2.3 million dollar increase from the $4 million Ross made last season and it’s hard to think it’s not well deserved after Ross laid down the smack during the National League Championship Series.

As for the Giants end of this, you can’t really complain. Ross, great as he was during the playoff run, isn’t worth a long term deal so getting him on a somewhat respectable salary for one season – it’s a win/win for both Ross and the Giants.

Ross should handle the majority of right field duties during the 2011 campaign.
