SF Giants Rumors: Hunter Pence and Jose Mijares Avoid Arbitration

Pence-Giants-TogetherThe San Francisco Giants have avoided arbitration with two players thus far. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported (via Twitter) this morning that outfielder Hunter Pence agrees to terms with the Giants for $13.8 million for 2013. Pence will hit the free agent market at the end of the season.

MLB Trade Rumors reported last night that the Giants have also avoided arbitration with reliever Jose Mijares. Mijares will make $1.8 million in 2013. Unlike Pence, Mijares will have another year of arbitration in 2014. Which means he’s still under the teams control for another year.

There’s still four remaining arbitration eligible players on the Giants. That’s Buster Posey, Sergio Romo, Gregor Blanco and Joaquin Arias.

    I do not understand why Pence gets 13.8 million and Posey gets 8 million when he is the best player on the Giants, Does not make sense to me or to any one else I have talked to. Posey deserves alot more than that. I know I do not understand the politics of the game. Just saying.
