Giants Sign Todd Wellemeyer

The Giants signed Todd Wellemeyer to a minor league deal, reports Mychael Urban of CSNBayArea.comKen Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets that the deal will be worth at least $1MM if he makes the team, plus performance bonuses.  The Giants had been named as the favorite by Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post on Friday.

Wellemeyer, 31, had a decent 2008 season for the Cardinals despite middling peripheral stats.  A big innings jump in '08 may have contributed to an elbow injury last year.  Wellemeyer's numbers worsened across the board in his '09 walk year, leading to a 5.89 ERA in 122.3 innings.  Still, there's nothing to lose for the Giants by signing him to a minor league deal.  The Rockies, Mets, Phillies, and D'Backs were also linked to Wellemeyer this winter.
