AP - Sports

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Giants have agreed to one-year deals with three of their five players in salary arbitration: outfielder Gregor Blanco, right-hander Yusmeiro Petit and infielder Tony Abreu.

Blanco's deal announced Friday is for $2,525,000, Abreu's is for $987,500 and Petit's is for $845,000.

First baseman Brandon Belt and infielder Joaquin Arias remain in arbitration. Belt asked for $3.6 million and the team offered $2.05 million; Arias is seeking $1.5 million to the team's $1.1 million.

Blanco batted .265 with three home runs and 41 RBIs last season. He has been a defensive specialist since joining the Giants two years ago, including making a diving catch to preserve Matt Cain's perfect game in 2012.

Petit went 4-1 with a 3.56 ERA in eight games last season with San Francisco. Abreu batted .268 with two home runs and 14 RBIs in 53 games.
