The dotted line has been signed.
The 29-year-old passed his physical and joined the Giants on a two-year, $36 million contract.
The deal includes an opt-out clause after 2023.
The Giants were quick to pivot to Conforto after the veteran outfielder’s former team, the New York Mets, jumped in and swiped Carlos Correa away.
Conforto missed the entire 2022 season recovering from a shoulder injury.
In 2021, the star right fielder hit just .232 with 14 home runs and 55 RBI.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today was the first to report the news of Conforto’s signing becoming official.

The Giants fell short of the postseason after winning 107 games in 2021.
With Conforto in the fold, they have officially addressed their outfield concerns.
San Francisco has had a productive offseason, signing outfielder Mitch Haniger and pitchers Ross Stripling and Sean Manaea.
Unfortunately, they were outbid on Aaron Judge and Carlos Rodon, both of whom signed with the New York Yankees.
Then, there was the Correa situation, which still has yet to be resolved on the Mets’ end.
But the Giants have at least improved their outfield and added some key pieces to their roster.
Whether or not it is enough to compete with the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers remains to be seen.
But despite Correa not panning out, the Giants have been productive and added some key pieces.
The team won just 81 games in 2022 and finished in third place in the National League West division.
