BEFORE FAME

Matt attended Lakewood High School in Lakewood, California, where he acquired the nickname “Duffman.” He led the Lancers to the league championship in 2008.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

In 2015, Matt and RHP Chris Heston became the first set of teammates to lead MLB rookies in wins (12) and hits (169) since the White Sox’ Gary Peters (19 wins) and Pete Ward (177 hits) in 1963. His 77 RBI in ’15 were the third most in San Francisco Giants history behind only Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda (96 in 1958) and Jim Ray Hart in (81 in 1964). He finished second in the NL Rookie of the Year race in ‘15, falling to Chicago’s Kris Byrant. A member of the Giants’ World Championship team in 2014, Matt was acquired by the Tampa Bay Rays at the August 1 (2016) non-waiver trading deadline as part of a trade for left-handed pitcher Matt Moore.

FUN FACT

Matt was elected the winner of the 2015 “Willie Mac Award,” named after Giants Hall-of-Famer Willie McCovey. This annual honor is bestowed upon the most inspirational player on the team as voted upon by Giants players, coaches and training staff.
