Pat Burrell gets 1-year deal with SF Giants

Pat Burrell, the local boy, is staying put.

Burrell and the Giants have reached agreement on a one-year contract, The Chronicle has confirmed. The value was not immediately available.
Burrell, 34, was a major contributor to the Giants' championship and their everyday left fielder for most of the season after the team signed him following his release by Tampa Bay.

He is expected to be a role player and his salary probably will reflect that.

Burrell hit 18 homers in 289 at-bats for the Giants, including a game-winning, two-run homer in the eighth inning against Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton on July 31 at AT&T Park.

Burrell grew up in the Santa Cruz area and attended Bellarmine College Prep in San Jose before going to the University of Miami.
