Giants sign Mota

Posted on: December 19, 2010 10:31 pm

MotaThe Giants have agreed to a minor-league contract with righty Guillermo Mota, as Enrique Rojas of ESPN reports.

Mota was being courted by the Dodgers and Rays along with two unnamed teams, but the Giants won out. Mota pitched 54 innings for the World Series champions, posting a 4.33 ERA, striking out 38 and walking 22.

Mota can still bring a heater, but it doesn't have the same life on it as it once did. He'll compete for a bullpen spot in spring training.
