2012 MLB Offseason: INF Ryan Theriot Signs With San Francisco Giants

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports has announced that the San Francisco Giants have signed free agent infielder Ryan Theriot to a one year deal. According to Heyman, the former St. Louis Cardinals second baseman will have a modest contract, heavy with incentives:

The 32-year-old Theriot joins his fourth team in three years after coming to St. Louis as a free agent in 2011 on a $3.3M contract. With the Cards, Theriot hit an unimpressive .271/.321/.342 with only 4 steals yet was caught stealing 6 times. He started 132 games and had only one hit and one walk in the 2011 World Series, going 1 for 13.

The former Chicago Cubs infielder spent five and a half years on Chicago's northside team before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2010.
