SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — General manager Brian Sabean and manager Bruce Bochy have received contract extensions taking them through the 2013 season with club options for 2014, moves that were expected this winter.

CEO Larry Baer had been committed during the offseason to keeping both men with the organization after they were instrumental in the team’s 2010 World Series championship, the first for the franchise since moving West in 1958. Sabean is the longest-tenured GM with one club in baseball.

The Giants went 86-76 and missed the playoffs this year, when they dealt with devastating season-ending injuries to 2010 NL Rookie of the Year catcher Buster Posey and second baseman Freddy Sanchez.

Baer assumed decision-making duties from outgoing managing partner Bill Neukom.
