SAN FRANCISCO — Hunter Pence pleaded ignorance as his San Francisco Giants teammates greeted him with hugs and backslaps when he arrived at AT&T Park for Saturday's game against San Diego.
Pence and the San Francisco Giants have reached a tentative agreement on a $90 million, five-year contract, pending a physical.
"I can't say too much until it's official," Giants' manager Bruce Bochy said. "It's good news. I couldn't be happier for Hunter."
Pence, who was scheduled to get his physical before taking the field, politely declined comment.
A formal announcement of the deal is expected Sunday. He had been eligible to become a free agent after the World Series.
