Giants Sign Bobby Howry To $2.75M/1-Year Deal

Former Cub Bobby Howry inked a $2.75M/1-year deal with the Giants, who drafted him in 1994, but for whom he never played. (Also via The Griddle.) Howry's been up and down throughout his career, but his 84 ERA+ with Chicago in 2008 doesn't lend itself to a lot of optimism going forward.

El Lefty Malo links to San Francisco Chronicle blogger Henry Schulman, who says Howry's poor showing was due to overwork, "particularly in the number of times Howry warmed up in the bullpen without pitching." It's an interesting comment since it's hard to check on.

McCovey Chronicles reminds us that the Cubs refused arbitration to Howry, thus making him more attractive to the Giants.
