Left-handed relief pitcher Jeremy Affeldt and the San Francisco Giants have agreed to a three-year contract, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported Monday night. Heyman reported that the deal will be for $18 million over the three seasons.

Affeldt was a key part of the Giants bullpen during their run to a World Series title over the Detroit Tigers. He pitched 1 2/3 innings during the deciding Game 4. In the postseason, he pitched 10 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out 10 and allowing only five hits.

The postseason performance followed a strong regular season from the 33-year-old Affeldt, who appeared in 67 games and had a 2.70 ERA.

According to the report, Affeldt had other suitors — including the St. Louis Cardinals, who lost in the National League Championship Series to the Giants.
