Giants Cut Ties with J.D. Davis Post-Arbitration, Chapman In as New Third Baseman
  • The San Francisco Giants have released infielder J.D. Davis following his salary arbitration victory.

  • Davis will receive approximately $1.1 million in termination pay, instead of the $6.9 million salary awarded by arbitration.

  • The release comes despite Davis' solid performance, hitting .248 with 18 home runs and 69 RBIs in his first full season with the Giants.

  • The Giants' decision was influenced by their recent agreement with third baseman Matt Chapman on a $54 million, three-year contract.

  • Davis had a strong showing in spring training but was still deemed expendable by the team.

  • Now a free agent, J.D. Davis is expected to draw interest from several teams, including the Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners, and Toronto Blue Jays.

  • Matt Chapman is set to become the new starting third baseman for the Giants.
