Dusty Baker is returning to the San Francisco Giants for a third stint with the team, this time as a special assistant in the front office, according to multiple reports.

An announcement is expected this week.

Baker is still beloved in the Bay Area, and this could be his final baseball stop in what almost certainly will be a Hall of Fame career.

Back with the Giants, he will serve as a special assistant to president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi and CEO Larry Baer. Baker managed the Giants from 1993 to 2002 before coming back to work as an adviser to Baer during a break from managing in 2018 and 2019.
