The Giants have re-signed right-handed relief pitcher Guillermo Mota, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman has learned. The deal is for one year and $1 million.
Mota, 38, had a 3.81 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 80 1/3 innings last season for San Francisco. The signing helps keep most of the Giants' elite bullpen together for the 2012 season. Only the Braves had a better bullpen ERA in 2011 than the Giants, and it was only 3.03 to 3.04. The Giants traded Ramon Ramirez to the the Mets during the Winter Meetings, but the rest of the key components are coming back.
