Nearly three weeks after filing for arbitration, reliever George Kontos has reportedly settled on a salary for 2016 with the Giants.
Coming off the best season of his career, the 30-year-old Kontos will make $1.15 million this upcoming season, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman.
The figure is a decent increase over the $517,500 Kontos earned in 2015.
