Wilmer Flores, Giants finalize two-year, $6.25M contract

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Versatile infielder Wilmer Flores and the San Francisco Giants finalized a two-year, $6.25 million contract Wednesday as spring training began, giving the club a proven hitter against left-handed pitching.

Flores will earn $3 million each of the next two seasons, and the deal includes a $3.5 million club option for 2022 with a $250,000 buyout.

"The addition of Wilmer Flores gives us great flexibility with his ability to play across the infield," Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said. "Offensively, he matches up well against both right-handed and left-handed pitching and adds another bat to the mix that can help lengthen our lineup."

The 28-year-old Flores batted .317 with nine home runs, 18 doubles and 37 RBI in 89 games for the National League West rival Arizona Diamondbacks last season.
