Nick Hundley, Giants reach 1-year deal for $2M

SAN FRANCISCO -- TheGiantshave agreed to a $2 million, one-year contract with Nick Hundley to serve as the backup catcher to Buster Posey.

Hundley passed a physical, and his deal was announced Tuesday.

He batted .260 with 10 home runs and 48 RBIs in 83 games for Colorado last season, starting 77 games behind the plate.

San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy likes to give Posey regular days off and some time at first base. Posey started 122 games at catcher and 11 at first last year.

Hundley, 33, has spent all but half a season in his nine major league years in the NL West. He played from 2008 to '14 with San Diego and then half a season with Baltimore in '14 before spending the past two seasons with the Rockies.

To clear roster room, the Giants designated infielder Ehire Adrianza for assignment.
