The San Francisco Giants resolved a notable team dilemma on Friday, reaching an agreement on a five-year, $90 million extension deal with Logan Webb.
Webb, who signed a $4.6 million contract with the Giants in January to avoid arbitration, was slated to hit free agency after the 2025 season. Now, Webb is under contract with the Giants for the next five seasons, and he will earn at least $20 million in each of the final three years of his deal.
After Webb came to terms with the team on the five-year extension deal, the right-hander took some time to send a message to Giants fans.
“What’s up Giants fans, excited to be in front of you guys for the next six years,” Webb said. “Gonna be a blast, can’t wait. See you guys soon.”
Webb, who was born and raised in Rocklin, California, is much pleased that he will continue to call Northern California home.
“It was just important for me to be able to say I can wear a Giants uniform for a long time,” Webb said. “It’s important for not only myself but my family and especially my community back home. I know they’re very excited. There’s a lot of diehard Giants fans in Rocklin, California.
“This is where I want to be. It’s an honor.
Webb has anchored San Francisco's starting rotation as of late. He orchestrated a potent season in the 2022 campaign, as he logged career highs in ERA (2.90) and innings pitched (192.1). The Giants hurler wound up finishing in 11th place in the voting for the 2022 National League Cy Young Award.
Webb's next start is scheduled for Sunday when the Giants will square off with the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park.
