Melancon, Giants reach $62M, 4-year deal pending physical

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The San Francisco Giants landed the top-tier closer they have been seeking for months, agreeing to a $62 million, four-year contract with right-hander Mark Melancon on Monday.

It's the richest contract ever for a closer, topping Jonathan Papelbon's $50 million, four-year deal with the Phillies from 2012-15, and the average annual value tops Mariano Rivera's $15 million with the New York Yankees from 2011-12.

"Really excited to have Mark," manager Bruce Bochy said in a text message. "Got to know him on a trip to Taiwan in 2011. Fills an important need for us. Great to get one of the premier closers in the game."
