The Giants have signed outfielder Jorge Soler to a three-year contract, which is a significant addition to their free-agent acquisition list. This news was reported by Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle on Monday night.
Soler had an impressive 2023 season with the Miami Marlins, hitting 36 home runs and posting a .250/.341/.512 slash line. In addition to his great performance in 2023, he was also the World Series MVP in 2021 with the Atlanta Braves, helping them win the championship with a .300 batting average, three home runs, and six RBIs.
At 31 years old, Soler brings much-needed power to the Giants’ lineup. This reported deal is a major step forward for San Francisco as they look to improve their offensive capabilities. The Giants have taken a step in the right direction by adding Soler to their roster.
