2:45pm: According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Giants signed Bob Howry to a one-year deal. They moved quickly after the Cubs decided not to offer arbitration to the Type A free agent. If Howry bounces back (the Giants think Lou Piniella overworked him this year), he'll be a nice complement to Jeremy Affeldt and Brian Wilson in the late innings.
Howry came up through the Giants' system before being traded to the Sox in the White Flag deal of '97.
