SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have agreed on a $31 million, three-year deal with free-agent outfielder Denard Span, pending a physical.

If Span passes the physical later Thursday he will be officially introduced at a news conference on Friday. Span will make $10.33 million a year and can make additional money with performance bonuses.

After filling their holes in the rotation earlier in free agency by signing Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, the Giants addressed their other major offseason need by signing Span.

Span, who will turn 32 next month, batted .301 with five homers, 22 RBIs and a .365 on-base percentage in 61 games last season with Washington. He missed time with injuries to his back, left hip and right core.
