Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com says San Francisco Giants GM Brian Sabean can guarantee that Hunter Pence will be with the Giants in 2013. However, Sabean can’t make the same guarantee for Brian Wilson.
“Pence is going to be coming back,” said Sabean. “We think there are some things he can do to fix what went wrong this year. We like the player. We made a big trade to get him, and he’s going to be a Giant next year.”
Wilson isn’t expected to be ready by the start of the 2013 season. In fact, probably not till the middle of the season. If the Giants decide to non-tender him. Wilson will become a free agent.
I’m speculating that Wilson and the team will reach some kind of deal to keep him in the Giants organization and not pay another $8.5 million for a player that likely won’t sniff the field till the 2nd half of the season.
