After two years with the Toronto Blue Jays, third baseman Matt Chapman is reportedly heading to the San Francisco Giants.

The four-time Gold Glove winner agreed to a three-year, $54-million deal with the Giants on Friday, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman was first to report.

According to Heyman, the contract includes two opt-outs for Chapman but would pay him $20 million in 2024, $18 million in 2025 and $16 million in 2026 if the options are not declined.

Chapman, 30, was named the Gold Glove winner in 2023, helping the Blue Jays advance to the wild-card round for the second year in a row.

After a hot start — he was named American League player of the month in April — Chapman cooled considerably at the plate for the rest of 2023. He slashed .240/.330/.424 with 17 homers and 54 RBIs for the season.

In his first year with the Blue Jays, Chapman was more productive with the bat (27 homers, 76 RBIs).

The Blue Jays acquired Chapman in a deal with the Oakland A’s in March 2022.

The A’s picked Chapman 25th overall in the 2014 MLB Draft and he made his MLB debut with Oakland in 2017.

For his career, Chapman is hitting .240/.329/.461 with 155 homers and 426 RBIs.
