Madison Bumgarner: Rejects qualifying offer
Bumgarner rejected his qualifying offer from the Giants on Thursday, making him a free agent, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Even though Bumgarner's production has declined slightly since his prime, he is still expected to receive a sizeable contract in free agency. The Giants will now be able to receive draft-pick compensation should he sign elsewhere. The 30-year-old recorded a 1.13 WHIP with a 203:43 K:BB over 34 starts last season.
