One of the best stories of 2010 was Andres Torres, who bounced around the minors for more than a decade before supplanting Aaron Rowand as the Giants’ center fielder. Even more engaging: Torres had an appendectomy late in the season only to return and make significant contributions as the Giants drove to their first World Series championship in San Francisco.
Today, Torres signed a one-year deal with the Giants.
That’s great news for the Giants, great news for Giants fans. And the great news for Torres, according to the MLB.com, is that his salary increases 400 percent from last year.
