ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that right-hander Clay Hensley agreed to a one-year, $750,000 contract on Thursday evening with the Giants.

The deal also carries around $300,000 worth of performance-based incentives, meaning Hensley could push the total value of it to over $1 million.

Hensley had a rough 5.19 ERA and 46/30 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings last season for the Marlins, but the 27-year-old posted a promising 2.16 ERA and 77/29 K/BB ratio across 75 innings in 2010. And he owns a decent 3.94 career ERA.

Hensley might be best known for giving up Barry Bonds’ record-tying 755th home run back in 2007.
