Rich Aurilia Still Talking To Giants

Andrew Baggarly has a little bit of info about free agent first baseman Rich Aurilia.  Aurilia’s agent is having ongoing conversations with the Giants, and the team considers him their top option for a right-handed bat off the bench.  A one-year deal seems likely, but Baggarly isn’t sure what’s holding up the process.

Aurilia, 37, hit .283/.332/.413 in 440 plate appearances while playing the infield corners.  He earned $4.5MM, so a significant pay cut is in order.
