RF,DH - San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants and free-agent outfielder/DH Jorge Soler have agreed to a three-year, $42 million contract.
The 31-year-old indeed gets the three-year pact he had reportedly been in search of on the open market. The 3-year-old gas a big season with the Marlins in 2023, hitting 36 home runs alongside an .853 OPS across 580 trips to the plate. He will serve as the Giants' primary DH in the 2024 campaign.
The San Francisco Giants are reportedly in talks with Jorge Soler.
This remains a rumor for now, but it is something to monitor. With Spring Training starting this month, Soler will likely look to sign with a team soon. Slusser mentioned that the power Soler possesses makes a lot of sense for the current state of the Giants lineup.
The Mets among other teams could be waiting for the price to drop on Jorge Soler and other free agents.
This is according to Ragazzo, though he said it is more of his opinion based on what he has seen. J.D. Martinez is another big name who remains a free agent. With Spring Training right around the corner, these players should be signing with teams in the next few weeks or so.
The Marlins did not extend a qualifying offer to DH Jorge Soler Monday.
Soler declined his $9 million player option earlier this month and now will enter the free agent market without a qualifying offer. This should help Soler land a solid contract, as now any suitors do not have to give up a draft pick to sign the slugging DH.
Outfielder Jorge Soler has opted out of the final season of his three-year deal with the Miami Marlins.
The free agent market adds some power with Soler who is coming off of a 36-homer season with the Marlins, a figure that should help land him a handsome multi-year contract on the open market. The 31-year-old is a career .243 hitter but has 170 home runs across 870 games between the Cubs, Royals, Braves, and Marlins.
