December 29, 2020
Thames signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Yahoo! Japan reports.
It was a busy day for Yomiuri, as the team also signed another first baseman in Justin Smoak on a deal worth at least $6 million. It's unclear how much Thames' deal is worth, but he'll likely be forced to play the outfield. Thames had 72 homers in three seasons with the Brewers, but he struggled with the Nationals in 2020 with a .617 OPS in 41 games. He also had a successful stint with the NC Dinos in the KBO before returning to MLB in 2017.
