The San Francisco Giants made two acquisitions on Friday, signing outfielder Michael Conforto to a two-year, $36 million contract and left-hander Taylor Rogers to a three-year, $33 million deal, sources confirmed to ESPN.
Conforto’s contract includes an opt-out after the 2023 season, sources told ESPN’s Buster Olney.
Conforto is joining the Giants after missing the 2022 season following shoulder surgery in April. He became a free agent last offseason after turning down an $18.4 million qualifying offer from the New York Mets.
The deal, which was struck between the Giants and agent Scott Boras, comes after another high-profile client of Boras, Carlos Correa, was turned over to sign a 12-year, $315 million contract with the Mets. A previous 13-year, $350 million deal with the Giants fell through earlier this week after Boras told the New York Post that there was a “disagreement” over Correa’s physical condition.
Rogers, meanwhile, will join his twin brother, right-hander Tyler, in the Giants’ bullpen.
The 29-year-old Conforto played his first seven seasons in New York, where he was a .255 hitter with 132 homers, 396 RBIs and .824 OPS. He fielded his first and only All-Star team in 2017. He injured himself while training in January before deciding to have surgery.
Rogers, 32, spent the 2022 season with the San Diego Padres and Milwaukee Brewers, going 4-8 with a 4.76 ERA. He spent the last six seasons with the Minnesota Twins and has a 3.42 ERA in 385 career appearances.
USA Today was first to report Conforto’s signing, while The Athletic was first to report that Rogers would be joining San Francisco.
