Affeldt stays a Giant

Left-hander Jeremy Affeldt and the San Francisco Giants have completed an $18 million, three-year contract. Bobby Evans, the team’s vice president of baseball operations, said Wednesday the deal had been finalized — giving the reliever out of Northwest Christian the kind of job stability he sought once the World Series winners were done with their season. The 33-year-old Affeldt went 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA in 67 appearances covering 63 1/3 innings this season for the Giants. When the season ended, he said he wanted to stay but needed a multiyear deal to provide his family with stability — he has a wife and three young sons. Affeldt also was a key member of the 2010 title team. – Associated Press
