Christian Petersen/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) — The San Francisco Giants are spending their money wisely this offseason.  Pitcher Santiago Casilla and the team agreed on a three-year $15 million contract on Monday, pending a physical.

Casilla, 32, was a member of the 2012 World Series team and went 7-6 with a 2.84 ERA and 25 saves in 73 appearances.  He struck out 55 batters in 63 1/3 innings.

The contract includes a vesting option for 2016. 

Casilla becomes the fourth member of the championship team to be signed. The Giants gave out multi-year contracts to outfielder Angel Pagan, World Series MVP second baseman Marco Scutaro, and reliever Jeremy Affeldt so far this offseason.
