SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Second baseman Freddy Sanchez of the San Francisco Giants has a new one-year contract extension with the World Series champions that will pay him $6 million next season.

The 33-year-old infielder signed a $12 million, two-year contract extension with the club in Oct. 2009, after coming over from Pittsburgh at the trading deadline that year.

The 2006 NL batting champion and three-time All-Star hit .254 with four doubles and three RBIs in 15 games in his first career postseason after nine years in the big leagues.
