Giants re-sign Ray Durham

With the arbitration deadline inching closer, the Giants decided to make their first major move to secure at least one role for 2007.

Ray Durham was re-signed by the Giants for a two-year deal that's worth between $14 million and $15 million. Durham had a career season in his last contract season with the Giants in 2006, hitting hit .293 with 26 homers and 93 RBIs.

Durham's power also provided much needed coverage behind Barry Bonds, who's future is still in question with the Giants, in 2006.

In addition to re-signing Durham, the Giants are planning to sign infielder Rich Aurilia to play first or third, and outfielder Dave Roberts to play center. There are also talks of negotiating a deal with catcher Bengie Molina.
