According to the AP, the Giants have signed Ryan Klesko to a one-year deal.
Rich Aurilia will be the primary first baseman in San Francisco, but could certainly be needed at second base for 20+ games. Klesko can squeeze in at first as well as play a little left field, DH during interleague, and pinch-hit.
Back in October, Klesko said he was feeling the best he has since the first half of 2003. He hit .262/.361/.520 with 19 HR before the break that year. He finally has two healthy shoulders and no neck problems. I like the signing. It's like the poor man's version of last year's Frank Thomas signing.
