Outfielder Gregor Blanco has agreed with the Giants on a one-year, $1.35 million contract, first reported by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. 

Heyman also reports outfielder Hunter Pence will return to the Giants on a one-year, $13.8 million deal.  

Reliever Jose Mijares is also back in the fold, according to Hardball Talk -- one-year, $1.8 million.
