SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Giants have agreed to one-year deals with three of their five players in salary arbitration: outfielder Gregor Blanco, right-hander Yusmeiro Petit and infielder Tony Abreu.

The Giants announced the moves Friday. First baseman Brandon Belt and infielder Joaquin Arias remain in arbitration.

Blanco batted .265 with three home runs and 41 RBIs last season. He has been a defensive specialist since joining the Giants two years ago, including making a diving catch to preserve Matt Cain's perfect game in 2012.

Petit went 4-1 with a 3.56 ERA in eight games last season with San Francisco. Abreu beatted .268 with two home runs and 14 RBIs in 53 games.
