The Giants locked up their homegrown ace to a 5-year, $90 million extension, the biggest contract given to a player under Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi. Logan Webb has been with the major league club since 2019 and has been groomed into their ace.
Webb has pitched to a career 3.53 ERA along with a 1.22 WHIP all while holding batters to a .249 BA. Compiling a 31-22 record since he made his major league debut.
Webb has been exactly what the Giants have always needed him to be and it's just a bit sweeter that this deal got done while being a homegrown player. His 2023 hasn't been exactly what he's been hoping for, but there's plenty of time to right the ship. Compiling a 4.76 ERA in 17.0 IP.
The Giants are a young team with plenty of talent that is going to take San Francisco to the next level as the years go on. The Giants now have an ace locked up for the next five seasons to help groom the other youngsters coming up through the farm system.
