Matt Chapman is headed to San Francisco.

The Giants struck a three-year, $54 million deal with the third baseman on Friday night, according to multiple reports. The deal reportedly includes opt-outs after both the first and second years of the agreement.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Chapman will earn $20 million this season. He will then earn $18 million in 2025, and $16 million in 2026 as long as he doesn’t opt out.

Chapman won his fourth career Gold Glove Award last year in what was his second season with the Toronto Blue Jays. He held a .240 batting average and had 54 RBI with 17 home runs while helping the Blue Jays to their second straight postseason appearance, though they were knocked out in the wild card round again. Chapman, who got his start with the Oakland A’s, has led all third baseman in defensive runs saved and is third in outs above average at the position since the start of the 2018 season, per ESPN.

Chapman had signed a two-year, $25 million extension with the Blue Jays after he was traded there from Oakland ahead of the 2022 season. He hit free agency officially last fall.

Chapman will now join a Giants team that has made the playoffs just once in the past seven seasons. San Francisco went just 79-83 last year and split with manager Gape Kapler. The organization then hired San Diego Padres manager Bob Melvin to replace him.
