The Giants have agreed to terms on a minor league contract with righthanded reliever Elmer Dessens, according to several national reports.

The deal was first reported by Jon Morosi of FOX Sports on his twitter account late Tuesday.

Dessens, 40, went 4-2 for the New York Mets last season with a 2.30 ERA in 53 appearances. According to Morosi, Dessens will earn 600K if he spends all season in the majors.
