According to multiple reports from sports outlets including ESPN, the San Francisco Giants have agreed to a three-year, $42 million contract with free agent outfielder Jorge Soler. The 31-year-old, two-time World Series champion signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Marlins before the 2022 season, but later declined the third-year option of that pact.

Soler, who will turn 32 at the end of February, spent the last two seasons with the Miami Marlins and is heading into his 11th year in the majors. He hit 36 home runs with the Marlins in 2023, the second-highest total of his career, on a .250/.341/.512 batting line. Soler hit .243 with 170 home runs over his first 10 seasons in the majors.

Soler won his first World Series title in 2016 with the Cubs, later leading the American League with a career-high 48 home runs during the 2019 season, which he spent with the Royals. He earned World Series MVP honors in 2021 with the Atlanta Braves. He also played for the Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals.
