Giants 2B Freddy Sanchez Gets Extension For 2012

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – Giants second baseman Freddy Sanchez is sticking around for another year.

San Francisco rewarded Sanchez with a $6 million, one-year extension for the 2012 season Friday, securing a key member of the infield for the World Series champions.

The 33-year-old Sanchez signed a $12 million, two-year contract extension with San Francisco on Oct. 30, 2009, after coming to the Giants at the trading deadline from Pittsburgh that year.

He’s dealt with his share of injuries in his short stint with the Giants. But the 2006 NL batting champion and three-time All-Star batted .254 with four doubles and three RBIs in 15 games in his first career postseason after nine years in the big leagues.

Sanchez was the first player in major league history with three doubles in his first three World Series at-bats.
