Players: Alex Dickerson, Kevin Pillar

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Outfielder Alex Dickerson reached agreement on a $925,000, one-year contract with the San Francisco Giants on Monday to avoid salary arbitration and give the club some stability at the position.

Dickerson played 68 games for the Giants and San Diego Padres last season, batting a career-best .276 having played parts of three major league seasons.

The Giants acquired Dickerson from their division rival last June. He made 33 starts in the outfield for San Francisco, 32 in left.

Outfielder Kevin Pillar is among San Francisco's remaining arbitration-eligible players.
