The Giants clearly like what they have seen from Webb, as the deal buys out his first three free agent years. He has posted two consecutive strong seasons, with a 2.96 ERA over 340.2 innings over the 2021 and 2022 seasons. That was enough to make him the Opening Day starter for the Giants this season.
Webb was also involved in the Giants’ efforts to recruit one superstar over the offseason, but the failed effort might have ended up leaving him some more money for this contract.
