Conforto joins Giants, already feels connection with team

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Giants had been on Michael Conforto’s radar for a while prior to his signing a $36 million, two-year deal to play in San Francisco. Conforto grew up admiring several members of the Giants organization, including Buster Posey, Madison Bumgarner and Tim Lincecum. Conforto bolsters San Francisco’s revamped outfield, which features fellow newcomer Mitch Haniger as well as the returning Mike Yastrzemski. Most of all, Conforto is eager to get back on a major league field after missing all of 2022 after undergoing right shoulder surgery.
