Giants agree to 3-year deal with OF Denard Span
Friday January 8th, 2016

The San Francisco Giants have agreed to terms with free agent outfielder Denard Span on a three-year contract, the team announced Thursday. 

The deal is not quite finished, as Span still has to complete a physical.

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Span’s contract is worth $31 million. 

The 31-year-old struggled with injuries in 2015, played in only 61 games for the Washington Nationals before undergoing season-ending hip surgery in August. He hit .301 with five home runs and 22 RBIs last season.

Over his eight-season major league career, Span has hit .287 and tallied 55 triples. He led the American League and National league in triples in 2009 and 2013, respectively.
