Giants reach agreement with RHP Santiago Casilla

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Giants and right-handed reliever Santiago Casilla have reached agreement on a one-year contract for the 2011 season, avoiding arbitration.

The World Series champions finished Casilla’s deal Wednesday. They already reached agreement Tuesday with outfielder Cody Ross, starting pitcher Jonathan Sanchez and reliever Ramon Ramirez.

Casilla went 7-2 with a 1.95 ERA in 52 appearances last year in his first season with San Francisco following six years across the bay with the Oakland Athletics. He pitched four times during the team’s postseason run, once in the World Series against the Texas Rangers.
