The Giants took a significant step forward in their pursuit of improving their offensive capabilities by signing outfielder Jorge Soler to a three-year contract. On Monday night, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reported the news, which was met with excitement from Giants fans everywhere.
Soler had a standout 2023 season with the Miami Marlins, hitting an impressive 36 home runs and posting a .250/.341/.512 slash line. This success continued in 2021, when he was named World Series MVP with the Atlanta Braves. Soler’s batting average of .300 helped lead the Braves to victory, as he also contributed three home runs and six RBIs.
At just 31 years old, Soler brings much-needed power to the Giants’ lineup. With his addition, San Francisco hopes to continue its recent success on offense and compete for championships in years to come. The signing of Soler represents a major step forward for the Giants as they look to build a roster that can contend for World Series titles.
