Pat Burrell is returning to the San Francisco Giants.
The former Phillie has agreed to a 1-year discounted contract to stick with the World Series champions, according to the San Jose Mercury-News. The report did not cite terms of the contract.
Burrell, 34, came to the Giants in May via waivers from Tampa Bay, which was paying him $9 million last season.
He became the everyday leftfielder, hitting 18 home runs in 289 at-bats, although he would struggle in the postseason, including going 0-for-13 with 11 strikeouts in the World Series. He was 3-for-22 with one RBI in the Giants' victory over the Phillies in the National League Championship Series.
