Giants sign lefty re­liever Smith for $4.2 mil­lion

The Tribune (SLO) - - Sports -

Giants left-han­der Will Smith reached agree­ment Fri­day on a $4.2 mil­lion con­tract with the San Fran­cisco Giants to avoid salary ar­bi­tra­tion.

Smith was a key mem­ber of the bullpen in a lost sea­son for San Fran­cisco af­ter he came back in 2018 from a year side­lined fol­low­ing Tommy John surgery. The 29-year-old Smith, who earned $2.5 mil­lion last sea­son, went 2-3 with a 2.55 ERA with 14 saves in 54 ap­pear­ances and 53 in­nings. Smith re­ceived the 2018 “Wil­lie Mac Award,” with Hall of Famer Wil­lie McCovey in at­ten­dance to present it dur­ing the sea­son’s fi­nal week­end.
