By Troy Nelson

The list of players with whom the San Francisco Giants have avoided arbitration continues to dwindle.

According to ESPN Deporte’s Enrique Rojas, the team has come to an agreement with reliever Santiago Casilla on a one-year, $2.2 million dollar contract that includes incentive bonuses worth $200,000.

Casilla, 31, earned $1.3 million dollars last season.

In 49 games last season, he was 2-2 with a tidy 1.74 ERA and 1.123 WHIP. He struck out 7.8 batters per nine innings and walked 4.4 batters per nine.

The Giants, who also reached agreement with Angel Pagan and Melky Cabrera over the weekend, now have four unsigned arbitration-eligible players: Tim LincecumSergio RomoPablo Sandoval, and Nate Schierholtz.

Today is the day that teams and players exchange arbitration figures.
