Jeff Suppan signs with Giants
San Francisco has agreed to a minor league contract with the 36-year-old right-hander and invited him to big league camp when pitchers and catchers report next month in Scottsdale, Ariz. Suppan would make $1 million if he is added to the World Series champions' 40-man roster and would have the chance to earn performance bonuses.
Suppan went 3-8 with a 5.06 ERA in 15 starts and 30 appearances last season -- his 16th in the majors -- with Milwaukee and St. Louis. He could give San Francisco a capable sixth starter as insurance.
