Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Up to 73 pitches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner allowed three hits and a walk while striking out four over 3.2 innings in Monday's spring game against the Royals.

Bumgarner's pitch count rose to 73 before he was pulled in the middle of the fourth inning in what was his third spring start. This was the best of three starts, something the left-hander alluded to following the game. "I felt good," Bumgarner told Steve Gilbert of "I kind of went about it in a little bit different way. I tried to really mix it up a lot today. We may have, but we really tried not to double-up on anything. Just keep moving the ball around, and force myself to make a completely different pitch on the next one to see where everything was at. I was pretty happy with it."

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Removed after 2.2 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out two over 2.2 innings in Wednesday's spring game against the Indians, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Bumgarner doubled his pitch count in his second spring start, tossing 47 pitches (34 strikes). He was tagged for a three-run home run by Francisco Lindor, the biggest blow in the Tribe's four-run third inning. The left-hander told Steve Gilbert of the usual things about getting his work in after getting knocked around in a spring training game, but Bumgarner added he's working on his changeup. "I've been working on it a lot," he said. "I've worked on it a lot in the past, too. It's always been a tougher pitch for me. There are sometimes I go out there and I've got it, and it's pretty easy, and then a lot of times it's not. I'm trying to kind of bridge that gap where it's more consistent."

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Pleased with debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner allowed one run on one hit while striking out four over two innings in Thursday's game against the Reds.

Bumgarner allowed a solo home run to Derek Dietrich, but he was pleased following the outing in which 17 of his 24 pitches went for strikes. "A lot better than expected for the first game of spring, especially the way it usually goes for me. I was pretty happy with it," the left-hander told Steve Gilbert of "It feels like [the curve] pretty much picked up right where it left off. I mixed in everything, threw a few more fastballs than I was originally planning." Bumgarner is on schedule to start Opening Day against the Braves.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Slated for spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner will make his Cactus League debut Thursday against the Reds, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Bumgarner had his second session against batters Sunday, which he characterized as better than the first round against live hitters. "That was a lot bigger improvement than I was actually looking for from the first one to this one," Bumgarner said. "It sure felt good. I felt really good about it." That first outing went so poorly that he requested a second opportunity to face hitters before getting into a game.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Will get Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Torey Lovullo confirmed Wednesday that Bumgarner will start the Diamondbacks' Opening Day game March 26 versus the Braves, Steve Gilbert of reports.

Though the four-time All-Star no longer finds himself among baseball's elite aces, he was an easy choice for the Diamondbacks' Opening Day nod after he inked a five-year, $85 million deal with the club in December. The home-run issues that plagued Bumgarner in 2019 may only get worse while he trades Oracle Park for Chase Field, but his ability to eat innings and strike out batters at a decent clip while limiting walks should at the very least make him a worthy depth option for any fantasy pitching staff.

Madison Bumgarner: Heading to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner agreed Sunday with the Diamondbacks on a five-year, $85 million deal, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Bumgarner had been linked to a number of teams since the season ended but the Diamondbacks emerged as a surprise suitor. After spending the first 11 seasons of his career in San Francisco, Bumgarner will now stick in the NL West as he heads into his 30s. Bumgarner posted a career-worst 3.90 ERA in 2019 but will still provide a major boost to a young and promising rotation that also includes Robbie Ray and Zac Gallen.

Madison Bumgarner: Rejects qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner rejected his qualifying offer from the Giants on Thursday, making him a free agent, Jeff Passan of 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.

Madison Bumgarner: Receives qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner received a qualifying offer from the Giants on Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The 30-year-old may not be the pitcher he once was, but he can still expect to be in line for far more than one year and $17.8 million. The Giants will receive draft-pick compensation should he sign with another team.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Will not pitch again this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner will have his final start of 2019 bypassed, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Bumgarner was scheduled to face off against his long-time rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers, on Sunday in what will be manager Bruce Bochy's final game before retirement. The Giants' skipper stated that he did not want to pressure his starter to go out there in a regular season game that has no impact on either team's final results. Bumgarner finishes the 2019 campaign with a 3.90 ERA and 4.7 K/BB ratio over 207.2 innings. The 30-year-old will head into unrestricted free agency this upcoming offseason. The club announced that it will have a bullpen game to replace Bumgarner's slot Sunday.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Strikes out nine in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner gave up four runs on six hits while walking two and striking out nine over seven innings Tuesday, but he did not factor into the decision when the Giants eventually fell to the Rockies 8-5 in extra innings.

This outing provided a snapshot of the type of pitcher Bumgarner has become in his 10th season; he went deep into the game (by today's standards), was prone to the long ball (three homers), limited the damage elsewhere, and missed a good amount of bats (he reached the 200-strikeout mark in this contest). The 30-year-old's 3.90 ERA is identical to his 3.90 FIP, so we may never see the postseason hero or his dominant prime form. That said, Bumgarner is still effective in an era that lacks reliable and consistent fantasy starters. The veteran southpaw will fittingly take on the Dodgers on Sunday in manager Bruce Bochy's final game as the club's manager.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Whiffs seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (9-9) was charged with the loss against the Red Sox on Thursday, surrendering five runs on nine hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven across five innings.

The left-hander let the Red Sox to get to him early, allowing his first four batters to reach safely, then falling behind 2-1 after the first inning, and 5-1 after the second. The loss was Bumgarner's first ever at Fenway Park as he fell to .500 on the season. The 30-year-old now owns a 3.86 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 194:41 K:BB. He'll look to bounce back against Colorado on Tuesday.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Lines up for three more starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner is expected to pitch on his normal four days' rest for the remainder of the season, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Bumgarner is already locked in to make his next start Thursday in Boston, and the Giants apparently plan to take advantage of their final off day of the season Sept. 23 to have the lefty jump ahead of Jeff Samardzija in the pitching schedule. That would set Bumgarner up for a pair of home starts in the final week, with those turns coming Sept. 24 versus the Rockies and in the finale Sept. 29 versus the Dodgers.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Fires 20th quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Marlins, giving up two runs on four hits over seven innings while striking out three.

The southpaw kept Miami off the board for six innings until Jorge Alfaro drove a curveball to left-center field for a two-run homer, but the Giants struck back in the bottom of the frame to take their ace off the hook for his ninth loss. The quality start was Bumgarner's 20th of the season, and he'll take a 3.73 ERA and 187:39 K:BB through 195.2 innings into his next outing Friday in Atlanta.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Sharp in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner threw seven innings in a no-decision against the Pirates on Monday, giving up two earned runs on six hits, striking out five and walking two as the Giants eventually fell 6-4.

It was a strong outing for the left-hander, but his bullpen coughed up four runs in the ninth inning to cost him what would have been his 10th win of the season. Bumgarner is still in the midst of another strong season, with a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 184:39 K:BB across 188.2 innings. He'll draw a favorable matchup for his next start, which will see him take on the Marlins at home on Sunday.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Surrenders six earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner allowed six earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out two across five innings Wednesday against the Cardinals. He did not factor into the decision.

Bumgarner worked fairly effectively through four innings, surrendering just two earned runs. However, things unraveled from there, as he allowed a two-run triple to Paul Goldschmidt in the fifth frame. Still, manager Bruce Bochy left Bumgarner in the game to begin the sixth inning and he proceeded to allow a double and triple to the first two batters he faced. Prior to this poor effort, Bumgarner had been on a good run, allowing two or fewer earned runs in four of his past five outings. For the season, he is still maintaining a solid 3.81 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 179 punchouts across 181.2 innings. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for Monday against the Pirates.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Secures ninth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (9-8) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven innings, earning the win in Friday's 8-3 win over the Padres.

A Manny Machado solo shot was the only damage to Bumgarner's line for the evening. The southpaw improved in the later innings, allowing just a single baserunner over his final three frames. For the year, Bumgarner has a 3.62 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 177 strikeouts in 176.2 innings. The 30-year-old is expected to face the Cardinals on Wednesday for his next start.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Takes no-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Saturday.

It wasn't the most efficient outing for the southpaw, who needed 97 pitches to complete the five frames. Bumgarner allowed a solo shot to Mark Canha and an RBI double to Matt Chapman as the only runs against him. He now has a 3.71 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 169.2 innings this season. Bumgarner is expected to face the Padres on Friday in his next start.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Suffers eighth defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (8-8) pitched six innings to take the loss to Arizona on Sunday, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out nine.

After consecutive quality starts in which Bumgarner allowed one run over 14 innings, the southpaw stumbled in the opening frame Sunday, allowing three hits and a walk to fall behind 3-0. He recovered to limit Arizona to a single run the rest of the way but was tagged with his eighth loss of the season and first since June 20. Bumgarner will carry a 3.72 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 163:33 K:BB across 164.2 innings into an interleague matchup across the bay in Oakland on Saturday.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Dominates for second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (8-7) picked up the win against the Athletics on Tuesday, giving up one earned run on two hits over seven innings, striking out nine and walking none as the Giants won 3-2.

The lefty was in vintage form for a second straight start, as a fifth-inning solo shot by Stephen Piscotty in this contest represents the only earned run Bumgarner has yielded over his last 14 innings. The pair of gems leaves him with a 3.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 154:31 K:BB across 158.2 innings ahead of his next start, which will see him take on the Diamondbacks in a Sunday road matchup.

Giants' Madison Bumgarner: Tosses gem for seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (7-7) earned the win against Philadelphia on Thursday, hurling seven scoreless innings and giving up one hit and one walk while striking out three.

In his first start in San Francisco since the passing of the trade deadline, Bumgarner was cheered heartily by the home crowd and responded with his best performance of the season. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Cesar Hernandez singled with one out to collect the only hit of the night against the Giants ace. The southpaw dominated Philadelphia by pitching to contact -- he induced only five swinging strikes and struck out a mere three batters -- while needing only 85 pitches to complete seven innings. Bumgarner has now won his last four decisions to even his record for the first time this season. He'll look for his eighth win when the Giants host the Athletics in an interleague matchup Wednesday.
