Abstract: We report the discovery of HATS-5b, a transiting hot Saturn orbiting a G-type star, by the HATSouth survey. HATS-5b has a mass of M p ≈ 0 . 24 M J , radius of R p ≈ 0 . 91 R J , and transits its host star with a period of P ≈ 4 . 7634 days. The radius of HATS-5b is consistent with both theoretical and empirical models. The host star has a V -band magnitude of 12.6, mass of 0 . 94 M , and radius of 0 . 87 R . The relatively high scale height of HATS-5b and the bright, photometrically quiet host star make this planet a favorable target for future transmission spectroscopy follow-up observations. We reexamine the correlations in radius, equilibrium temperature, and metallicity of the close-in gas giants and find hot Jupiter-mass planets to exhibit the strongest dependence between radius and equilibrium temperature. We find no significant dependence in radius and metallicity for the close-in gas giant population.
