SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Outfielder Andres Torres is returning to the Giants, reaching agreement Thursday on a one-year contract.
Vice President of Baseball Operations Bobby Evans said Torres still must pass a physical to finalize the deal.
The 34-year-old Torres spent the 2012 season with the New York Mets following three years with the Giants. He hit .230 this year with three home runs, 35 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 132 games.
A fan favorite and strong clubhouse presence, Torres could fit in as the left fielder or give manager Bruce Bochy options. Center fielder Angel Pagan last week received a $40 million, four-year contract.
