Last week Guillermo Mota was said to be close to re-signing with the Giants and now Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that it’s a done deal, as the veteran reliever gets a one-year, $1 million contract.
Mota earned $925,000 in 2011 after inking a minor-league deal with the Giants, throwing 80 innings with a 3.81 ERA and 77/30 K/BB ratio.
He’ll once again be asked to soak up some low-leverage innings in a middle relief role and Mota actually posted the best strikeout rate of his career at age 38.
