Lincecum, Key Additions Set!

Today was the day that the Giants and Tim Lincecum had their arbitration hearing. It's been reported that they were outside and asked for a little time so they can work out a deal before going in the arbitration room. Well they got the time they needed, because they got a two-year deal worked out. Lincecum and the Giants agreed to two years at $23 million. Lincecum will get $8 million this year, and $13 million next year. Yes, I know that doesn't add up to $23 million. The remaining $2 million is going to be paid as a signing bonus, which will be paid over the two years.

Now that Lincecum has been signed. The Giants are pretty much set to start spring training. I don't see anymore signings happening before the season starts. There has been a lot of players that have been linked to the Giants this offseason. Below is a list of who's in for 2010.

Key Additions

Aubrey Huff - 1B (free agent from Detroit Tigers)
Contract - 1 Year, $3 Million (2010)
Career - .282 AVG 203 HR's

Mark DeRosa - IF/OF (free agent from ST. Louis Cardinals)
Contract - 2 Years, $12 Million (10-11)
Career - .275 AVG with 92 HR's

Bengie Molina - C (re-signed by the San Francisco Giants)
Contract - 1 Year, $4.5 Million (2010)
Career - .276 AVG with 139 HR's

Juan Uribe - IF (re-signed by the San Francisco Giants)
Contract - 1 Year, $3.25 Million (2010)
Career - .257 AVG with 127 HR's

I will be doing a follow up post soon. I will give more insight on each one of these players.
