Citing sources, MLB.com reported on the 2nd (Korean time) that Chapman (30), who remained in the free agent (FA) market, agreed to a three-year contract with San Francisco worth a total of $54 million (about 72.1 billion won).

Matt Chapman is a third baseman with the league’s best defense and won the American League (AL) Gold Glove in 2018, 2019, 2021, and 2023.

Last season, he also played with Ryu Hyun-jin (Hanwha Eagles) at the Toronto Blue Jays.

Chapman’s batting accuracy is somewhat poor, but he is a long hitter who hit double-digit home runs every season from 2017, when he debuted in MLB, to last year.

With the addition of Chapman, San Francisco greatly improved its team strength.

In addition, Lee Jeong-hoo, who was designated as the number one hitter in the new season, can expect a synergy effect with Chapman, who will play the role of a problem solver.

The contract size is lower than expected.

Chapman wanted a long-term contract worth more than $100 million, but MLB clubs did not make offers that met his expectations.

Chapman was unable to find a team for his team until the start of his exhibition games, and then decided to sign his contract right before the start of the regular season.
