Jeremy Affeldt: Expected To Re-Up With Giants For Three-Years And $18 Million
Update: Affeldt is expected to re-sign with the Giants for around $18 million over three years, ESPN's Buster Olney reports.

Recommendation: The deal seems like a significant amount of money for a player who will projects to be no better than a setup man with the Giants in 2013, though he did see a couple of save opportunities late last season in a committee with Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez. The contract would seem to reward Affeldt's dependability more than anything, as he's posted a 2.73 ERA and appeared in at least 50 games in each of his four seasons with the Giants.
