He is also related to identical twins Luis Alexander Basabe and Luis Alejandro Basabe and minor leaguer Olivier Basabe.

Playing for the San Francisco Giants in 2024, he drove in 5 runs in a game against the Colorado Rockies on May 17th, and followed this by collecting 6 RBIs against the same team the next day. He was just the fourth player in Giants history with two consecutive games of 5 or more RBIs and the first since Jack Clark in 1982. He was rewarded by being named the National League Player of the Week.
