Giants pitcher returned $500K after contract error

SAN FRANCISCO

For San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Jeremy Affeldt, the answer was yes. The overpayment happened when the team negotiated a contract extension with him back in 2010.

His deal called for him to earn $4 million, but a clerical error listed that amount as $4.5 million. Both parties signed the contract without realizing the mistake.

Affeldt returned the money even though legally, the money was his.
