Giants sign SS Brandon Crawford to six-year contract
The deal is reportedly worth $75 million and includes a full no-trade clause, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
“Brandon is an exceptionally talented baseball player who has earned this through his hard work, dedication and competitive spirit,” Giants general manager Bobby Evans said in a statement. “He took great strides both offensively and defensively last season, winning his first-ever Gold Glove and Silver Slugger award. This is a great day for Brandon and his family, for the Giants and for our fans.”
Crawford, 28, was entering his second winter of arbitration before reaching the agreement.
In 2015, Crawford hit a career high 21 home runs and 84 RBIs to go along with his .256 batting average. He was awarded the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger honors at the end of the year. Crawford owns a .246 career batting average with 47 home runs and 262 RBIs in 654 games in his six years with the Giants.
