SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Right-hander Brad Penny and infielder Juan
Uribe have turned down one-year contract offers to return to the San Francisco Giants.

General manager Brian Sabean said Friday the club made a one-year offer with incentives to Penny and a one-year offer with an option and buyout to Uribe, but both free agents declined. The Giants aren't in further talks with either player right now.

One of Sabean's top priorities heading into next week's winter meetings in Indianapolis is the catcher spot, but he acknowledged it could take a while for that position to get settled. Bengie Molina is a free agent and has said he wants a multiyear deal, but San Francisco has Buster Posey as its catcher of the future and doesn't plan to offer more than a one-year deal.
