The pressure of pending free agency isn't a new feeling for Matt Chapman.

The Blue Jays third baseman has played with something to earn his entire career—a spot on the roster, an arbitration deal, and now a potentially massive payday on the open market.

"Every game matters," Chapman said. "I’ve always kind of felt the same. When I was on the minimum just trying to prove what I can do, or arbitration, and now free agency. Every year I’ve had the same mentality.”
