The San Francisco Giants have hired Gabe Kaper as manager.

Kapler will replace Bruce Bochy, who retired following the 2019 season.

Kapler worked with Farhan Zaidi, the Giants' head of baseball operations, when both were with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Philadelphia Phillies fired Kapler after the 2019 season.

Kapler also interviewed with the Chicago Cubs this offseason.

Astros bench coach Joe Espada and Rays bench coach Matt Quatraro were the other two finalists for the job.
