By Chris Haft / MLB.com


SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants made their first major acquisition of the offseason, signing free-agent center fielder Aaron Rowand to a five-year contract on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, although the value of Rowand's contract was reported by the Associated Press to be $60 million.


Rowand, 30, contributed heavily last season to the Philadelphia Phillies' successful bid for the National League East title. He hit .309 while reaching personal bests in hits (189), runs (105), doubles (45), RBIs (89), total bases (315) and games (161). He also earned his first Gold Glove Award for defensive excellence.


Rowand, who bats and throws right-handed, owns a .286 batting average in seven Major League seasons, the first five with the Chicago White Sox.
