Pence, Giants reach $90 million deal


Hunter Pence pleaded ignorance as his San Francisco Giants teammates greeted him with hugs and backslaps when he arrived at AT&T Park for Saturday’s game against San Diego. Pence and the Giants have reached a tentative agreement on a $90 million, five-year contract, pending a physical. “I can’t say too much until it’s official,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s good news. I couldn’t be happier for Hunter.” Pence, who was scheduled to get his physical before taking the field, politely declined comment. A formal announcement of the deal is expected today. He had been eligible to become a free agent after the World Series. “You can’t help but love Hunter Pence and the way he plays the game,” Bochy said. – Associated Press
