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: Homers in third straight game

    Chapman went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Pirates. Chapman's swing is rounding into form -- he's got a homer in three straight games, and he's hitting .405 (17-for-42) with six walks during an 11-game on-base streak. The third baseman's blast Thursday sparked the Giants' eighth-inning rally. He's up to a .249/.313/.440 slash line with eight homers, 27 RBI, five stolen bases and 33 runs scored through 50 contests overall.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Swats another homer

    Chapman went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and an additional run during Wednesday's 9-5 extra-inning win over the Pirates.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Lifts homer in loss

    Chapman went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a double in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-inning loss to the Pirates. Chapman has gone 16-for-43 (.372) with eight extra-base hits and eight RBI over his last 11 games. The third baseman's homer Tuesday gave the Giants a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning. He's up to six long balls, 22 RBI, 30 runs scored, 13 doubles and five stolen bases while slashing .243/.303/.411 over 48 contests. While his .714 OPS is notably down from last year, he seems to have turned a corner in May by batting .279 after hitting just .212 in April.

  • Giants' Matt Chapman: Four-hit game Saturday

    Chapman went 4-for-4 with a walk and four runs scored in Saturday's 14-4 win over the Rockies. Chapman doubled, singled twice and also stole his fifth base of the season. The veteran third baseman had three hits and a steal in Friday's contest, as well, so perhaps he's finally starting to turn the corner. Chapman had been demoted to as low as seventh in the Giants' batting order earlier this month, but he's hit cleanup for the last two games.

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

    Chapman went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a hit-by-pitch, an RBI, a 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 standards, 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.
