Giants, Jose Mijares avoid arbitration with one-year deal

5 Comments

Jose Mijares and the Giants have agreed to a one-year, $1.8 million deal, avoiding arbitration.

Last offseason the Twins oddly decided to release Mijares rather than paying him around $800,000 via arbitration and he signed with the Royals for $925,000.

He went on to have a good year in Kansas City and then San Francisco, throwing 56 innings with a 2.56 ERA, and now the Giants will keep him around for 2013 in a middle relief role. Mijares has a 3.00 ERA through 210 career innings at age 28.
