SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Hunter Pence and the San Francisco Giants have reached a tentative agreement on a $90 million, five-year contract, pending a physical.
A formal announcement of the deal is expected Sunday.
Pence is batting .282 with a career-high 26 home runs and 94 RBIs. He received the Willie Mac Award on Friday night, given to the most inspirational member of the Giants.
The two-time All-Star outfielder was acquired from Philadelphia in July last year and was credited with being instrumental in San Francisco's second World Series title in three years.
Pence finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting with the Houston Astros in 2007.
