Giants To Retain Feliz On One-Year Deal

Andrew Baggarly writes that third baseman Pedro Feliz will return to the Giants on a one-year deal worth $5-6MM.  Given that Feliz is the only remaining free agent 3B who can flash a little leather, it’s odd that he’d sign for just one year.  I know it’s not 1996 anymore but I’d think 96 ribbies would go further than this, also.

Perhaps one year truly was the best Feliz could find; there aren’t too many clubs still in the market for a 3B.  I can’t think of one team that still absolutely must acquire a third baseman this winter.  Feliz is going to work in the Dominican Republic this winter on his hitting approach and hopefully draw more than 33 walks next season.
