San Francisco Giants Sign Joaquin Arias To One Year Deal, Avoid Arbitration

By Bryan Rose

Another one bites the dust.

While utility man Joaquin Arias and the San Francisco Giants couldn’t agree to terms before the arbitrational deadline, the two sides did finally come to an agreement on a one year, $925,000 dollar contract according to Chris Haft.

The $925K figure was the mid-point between Arias’ requested figure and the Giants offered salary, so it appears both sides budged a bit to get a fair deal done.

Arias’ new deal now leaves Sergio Romo as the only Giant still remaining in arbitration.
