The San Francisco Giants made significant moves on Friday, securing one-year contracts for two experienced outfielders for the upcoming 2024 MLB season.
Mike Yastrzemski and Austin Slater, both eligible for arbitration, inked deals to stay with the Giants for another year.
Heading into his sixth season with the team, Yastrzemski is set to earn $7.9 million in 2024, while Slater, one of the longest-tenured Giants, will make $4 million. The outfield situation in San Francisco is further crowded with Michael Conforto opting into his contract for 2024, as MLB’s hot stove warms up.
All six of the Giants’ arbitration-eligible players, including LaMonte Wade Jr., Thairo Estrada, J.D. Davis, and Tyler Rogers, received contract tenders. Negotiations are ongoing, with the possibility of arbitration hearings if deals aren’t reached by Jan. 12, according to The San Francisco Chronicle’s John Shea.
