Player Outlook
Despite finishing second behind Aaron Judge in Statcast hard-hit rate and ranking in the 98th percentile in barrel rate, Matt Chapman was only 10% better than league average by wRC+ in 2023, a step backward from his first season in Toronto. He managed a modest 17 homers and a .424 SLG in 581 plate appearances. The third baseman limped to the finish line with a .663 OPS in his final 52 games around a stint on the injured list with a right middle finger sprain. That issue aside, Chapman has been remarkably healthy throughout his career, exceeding 600 PA in each of the last four full seasons prior to last year. Barring significant changes in the batter's box, Chapman seems destined to fan at an elevated rate pushing 30%, and those swing-and-miss issues will likely continue to temper his production. That said, Chapman's defense is holding up well and he's just entering his age-31 season. His playing time will be locked in no matter where he ends up in free agency.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Logs three hits, steal in win

    Chapman went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a hit-by-pitch, one RBI, one stolen base and three runs scored in Friday's 10-5 win over the Rockies. Chapman has gone 9-for-32 (.281) over his last eight games as he finally seems to be finding a rhythm at the plate. He got the Giants on the board with an RBI double in the first inning and continued to be involved in the team's subsequent rallies. The third baseman is slashing .218/.273/.362 with five home runs, 10 doubles, 20 RBI, 25 runs scored and four steals through 187 plate appearances this season. While his rate stats are well below his usual standard, the recent improvements are a reason for optimism, especially as he continues to hit in the heart of the order for a lineup devastated by injuries.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Grand slam powers win

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Reds. Chapman has multiple hits in two of his last three games, and Saturday also saw him go deep for the first time since April 16. The third baseman's first-inning blast was all the Giants needed in the win. Chapman is up to five homers, 18 RBI, 20 runs scored, seven doubles and three stolen bases with a .213/.261/.355 slash line over 40 contests. He's yet to really find a rhythm at the plate, and he's also not showing as much power or plate discipline to make up for his shaky contact.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Receiving rest day

    Chapman is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Chapman will take a seat for the first time since April 20 in what likely amounts to a maintenance day as the Giants and Rockies wrap up their series with a day game after a night game. Wilmer Flores will fill in at the hot corner for Chapman, who has seen his performance both in the field and at the plate take a step back in 2024 since signing with the Giants in March. He enters Thursday's contest with a .601 OPS, the lowest mark of any season in his career by more than 100 points (.717 in 2021 with Oakland).

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Records third steal

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 5-2 win over the Mets. Chapman is up to three steals this year, two of which have come over the last three contests. The third baseman has gone 8-for-24 (.333) with four RBI and six extra-base hits over his last seven contests. He's slashing .226/.280/.430 with four home runs, 14 RBI, 13 runs scored and seven doubles through 100 plate appearances, but his recent performances suggest he's trending in the right direction.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Swipes bag off bench

    Chapman went 2-for-2 with a stolen base in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks. Chapman came off the bench in this contest, but he was still able to earn his fourth multi-hit effort over his last 10 games. The third baseman is slashing .224/.283/.424 with four home runs, two steals, 12 RBI, 12 runs scored and five doubles over 92 plate appearances. Saturday's partial off-day looks to just be standard rest for the veteran rather than a response to his lackluster hitting to begin the campaign.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Goes deep in loss

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run a double in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Marlins. Chapman has two homers over the last four games and four on the year. The third baseman's blast Tuesday opened the scoring in the second inning. His power is a welcome sight after he hit just 17 homers in 2023, but he's batting just .205 with 11 RBI, 12 runs scored, a stolen base and three doubles through 18 contests so far in 2024.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Homers, scores thrice in win

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Rays. Chapman first came around to score in the top of the sixth inning after drawing a walk -- one of three walks allowed in succession by Chris Devenski. The third baseman scored again on a Thairo Estrada home run in the next frame before launching a solo shot of his own in the ninth with the game already well in hand. Chapman is still batting just .186 in April following Saturday's two-hit performance, though he has now registered multiple hits in two of his last three contests.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Launches two homers Friday

    Chapman went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs, a double and five RBI in Friday's 8-3 win over the Padres. Chapman opened the scoring in the first inning Friday with a two-run blast off Joe Musgrove, his first homer with the Giants. The 30-year-old third-baseman added an RBI double in the seventh inning before smacking another two-run homer off Pedro Avila in the ninth, putting the final touches on San Francisco's win. Chapman signed with the Giants late in the offseason after slashing .240/.330/.424 with 17 home runs and 54 RBI over 140 games with Toronto last year. He'll serve as San Francisco's regular third baseman this season while batting in the middle of the order.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Hitting fifth in spring debut

    Chapman is starting at third base and batting fifth for the Giants on Thursday against the Dodgers in his Cactus League debut, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Chapman officially signed on with the Giants on Sunday and will make his debut with the team four days later. Left-hander James Paxton is starting for the Dodgers and the five spot could be where Chapman resides versus southpaws during the regular season, as well. He might slide down a spot or two against righties.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Signs with Giants

    Chapman signed a three-year, $54 million contract with the Giants on Friday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Chapman will make $20 million in 2024, $18 million in 2025 and $16 million in 2026, but he will have the ability to opt out of his deal after each of the first two seasons. The 30-year-old third baseman slashed .240/.330/.424 with 17 homers and 54 RBI across 581 plate appearances for the Blue Jays last year. In San Francisco, Chapman may not see quite as heavy a workload due to the presence of J.D. Davis on the roster, but he still figures to see the majority of the playing time.

  • Matt Chapman: San Francisco remains in mix

    The Giants remain a possible designation for Chapman in free agency, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. San Francisco has been viewed as the favorite to land the third baseman throughout the offseason, but there doesn't currently appear to be much momentum toward a deal. Chapman spent the past two years in Toronto and hit 17 homers with a .240/.330/.424 slash line in 140 games during 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Gets Sunday off

    Chapman is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rays. Chapman is hitting .200 with four home runs, five runs, four RBI and one steal in his last 12 games. Santiago Espinal gets the nod at the hot corner in the regular-season finale.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Heating up ahead of playoffs

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 11-4 win over the Rays. The third baseman snapped a 30-game homer drought Thursday and then promptly went yard again the next day, clubbing his 17th long ball of the year in the fifth inning off Erasmo Ramirez. Chapman has still struggled to make a consistent impact since returning from a sprained finger in mid-September -- this was only his second multi-hit performance in 14 games, a stretch in which he's slashing .180/.281/.400 with a 29.8 percent strikeout rate -- but with Toronto needing just one more win (or a Seattle loss) to clinch a wild-card spot, he's finding his power stroke at the right time.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Breaks home run drought

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's victory over the Yankees. Chapman went yard off Luke Weaver in the fourth inning for his 16th long ball of 2023. However, the homer was Chapman's first since Aug. 4, though he missed two weeks due to injury. The third baseman has struggled down the stretch, going 12-for-82 (.146) with five runs scored and four RBI across his last 23 games.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Returns from IL

    The Blue Jays reinstated Chapman (finger) from the 10-day injured list Thursday. A sprained finger forced Chapman onto the injured list Aug. 28, and he'll now return as Toronto's everyday third baseman after making significant progress in his recovery across the past few days. The 30-year-old was in a considerable slump at the plate before getting injured, slashing .197/.256/.276 since the beginning of August. Nathan Lukes was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Hopeful to return this week

    Chapman (finger) hopes to return later this week, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. He went through a full day of workouts, including making throws in the infield and hitting off a velocity machine. For weeks, he'd only been fielding groundballs, so advancing to making throws is a big step. In the meantime, Cavan Biggio and Santiago Espinal have been platooning at third base.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Workouts continue

    Chapman (finger) took groundballs, threw to bases and hit in the batting cage Monday, Ethan Diamandas of SI.com reports. Chapman has been performing baseball activities for a few days, and he will repeat Monday's workout Tuesday. The report add that "it's about pain tolerance at this point" for Chapman, but he won't return from the 10-day injured list "until he can comfortably hit" against a high-velocity pitching machine.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Resumes baseball activity

    Chapman (finger) began hitting and throwing Friday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports. Although Chapman is making progress in his recovery, the 30-year-old remains without a firm timetable for his return -- though he should still be able to play again before the end of the year. Chapman has been on the injured list since Aug. 28 with a sprained right middle finger.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Not ready to ramp up activities yet

    Chapman is still waiting for the swelling and inflammation in his right middle finger to go down before ramping up baseball activities, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. Chapman is able to field grounders, but he's not clear to throw yet or swing a bat. He will be re-evaluated when the Blue Jays return home to Toronto on Friday. Presumably, the hope is that he will have made enough progress by then to ramp things up.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Hoping to swing bat this week

    Chapman (finger) said Sunday that he's hopeful to resuming swinging a bat and making throws with a baseball this week while the Blue Jays are in Oakland for a three-game series with the Athletics, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. Though Chapman noted that the swelling in his sprained right middle finger has gone down considerably since he landed on the 10-day injured list last Monday, he's still not able to make a fist with his hand. Chapman believes he'll regain more flexibility with the finger in the coming days, in which case he would be able to resume baseball activities. He still may have an outside shot at coming off the IL before next weekend's series with the Royals, though at this stage, Chapman's absence seems likelier to stretch into the following week.
