The Giants avoided arbitration with shortstop Brandon Crawford, agreeing to a one-year deal on Tuesday, CSNBayArea.com has learned.
The contract is worth $3.175 million, according to a CBSSports.com report.
Crawford reportedly filed for $3.95 million and the Giants countered with an offer of $2.4 million.
The 28-year-old hit .246 with career highs in home runs (10) and RBI (69) in 153 games with the Giants last year, his fourth season in the majors.
Crawford's grand slam against the Pirates in the Wild Card Game put the wheels in motion for the Giants' third World Series run in the past five years -- two of which Crawford has been helped achieve.
The Giants have two players who remain eligible for arbitration -- first baseman Brandon Belt and third baseman Casey McGehee.
Belt reportedly submitted a $4.5 request and the Giants countered with $3 million. McGehee is asking for $5.4 million while the Giants are offering $4 million.
