SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -

Reigning NL MVP and batting champion Buster Posey is among four San Francisco Giants to reach agreement on one-year contracts that avoided salary arbitration.

Posey, an All-Star catcher, will earn $8 million this season.

A big raise after the 2010 National League Rookie of the Year earned just over $600,000 in 2012. 

Posey established career highs with a .336 batting average, 24 home runs and 103 RBIs for the World Series champion Giants. He did so only a year after a devastating, season-ending left leg and ankle injury in a May 25, 2011, collision at the plate with the Marlins' Scott Cousins.

Outfielders Hunter Pence and Gregor Blanco and left-hander Jose Mijares also reached agreements, the Giants said Friday.

Pence, who came to the Giants in a trade deadline deal from the Phillies last summer, will earn $13.8 million.

 Blanco is due $1.35 million, Mijares $1.8 million.
