SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Free-agent left-hander Javier Lopez has finalized his $13 million, three-year contract to stay with the San Francisco Giants.

Lopez agreed to terms on the new deal last Thursday, but needed to travel to the Bay Area to undergo his physical Tuesday before signing the contract.

He will earn $4 million in both 2014 and '15 and $5 million in 2016. The deal includes up to $500,000 in incentives based on games pitched.

Keeping Lopez was among the top offseason priorities for general manager Brian Sabean after his club missed the playoffs following its second World Series title in three years during 2012.

The 36-year-old Lopez went 4-2 with a 1.83 ERA in 69 appearances and 39 1-3 innings this year. He just completed an $8.5 million, two-year contract.
