Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Begins throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (shoulder) has begun throwing, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear exactly what this entails, but he could simply be playing catch. Bumgarner is on the shelf with left shoulder inflammation and is without a timetable to return.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

Bumgarner was diagnosed with left shoulder inflammation after he underwent an MRI on Thursday. Although manager Torey Lovullo was initially optimistic about the southpaw's status, he'll miss at least one turn through the rotation while he recovers. Right-hander Humberto Castellanos was recalled from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move and is expected to pitch out of the bullpen, while it's not yet clear who could fill Bumgarner's spot in the rotation.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Dealing with inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner's MRI on Thursday revealed left shoulder inflammation, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Bumgarner will be shut down from throwing for a few days, but manager Torey Lovullo is optimistic that the southpaw isn't facing a lengthy absence, and the skipper said the 31-year-old could avoid a trip to the injured list. The left-hander had been dealing with shoulder discomfort over the past couple weeks, but the issue doesn't appear to be a significant concern for now. However, it's not yet clear when Bumgarner could return to the mound.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner was removed from Wednesday's start against the Mets after two innings due to left shoulder discomfort, and he'll undergo an MRI on Thursday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports. He gave up five runs on eight hits with two strikeouts and zero walks, and he didn't factor in the decision.

The 31-year-old has surrendered at least five earned runs in each of his past three starts, and he's apparently been managing the discomfort over the past couple weeks, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Regardless of the severity of the issue, Bumgarner seems likely to require at least a brief stint on the injured list, given he's been unable to shake off the injury.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Can't stop team losing streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (4-5) was charged with the loss Friday against St. Louis, pitching four innings and giving up seven runs (six earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out four.

The veteran southpaw struggled with both his command and control in the loss, tying season-worst marks by allowing a pair of home runs and four walks. Bumgarner induced only six swinging strikes across his four frames and suffered his third straight loss. Over a six-game stretch between April 18 and May 17, Bumgarner appeared to turn back the clock, posting a 1.32 ERA and 0.59 WHIP across 34 innings. He has fallen back to Earth across his past two starts, however, yielding 11 earned runs and a 6:4 K:BB across 10 frames. He'll try to get back on the winning track in his next outing, which is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday at home versus the Mets.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Dealt fourth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (4-4) took the loss Saturday at Colorado after giving up seven runs (five earned) on eight hits with two strikeouts and zero walks over six innings.

The veteran lefty allowed only one earned run through the first five innings, but the Rockies tacked on four runs during the sixth inning to sour the performance. Bumgarner had surrendered five earned runs over his previous six starts (34 innings), and he'll attempt to get back on next time out versus the Cardinals.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Throws normal bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Bumgarner (groin) threw a normal between-starts bullpen session Thursday and should be at "full strength" for his start Saturday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Bumgarner exited his last start early after experiencing a spasm in his left adductor, a muscle in the groin/thigh area. If all is well when the left-hander awakes Saturday, he should face the Rockies, who rank 10th in hitting and runs scored.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Sore, should make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (groin) was still sore Tuesday but should make his next start, Steve Gilbert of reports.

This a bit of good news for the Diamondbacks, who have several players on the IL, including starters Zac Gallen (elbow), Taylor Widener (groin) and Luke Weaver (shoulder). Bumgarner's next turn through the rotation is Saturday at Colorado.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Has spasm in leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner left Monday's game against the Dodgers with a spasm in his left adductor, a muscle in the groin/thigh area, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Bumgarner said he felt something while warming up but was able to pitch through it for four innings before departing. The issue appears to be so minor that the Diamondbacks are not planning to have the pitcher undergo an MRI, and Bumgarner expressed confidence that he'll avoid missing any time. The left-hander's next scheduled start is Saturday at Colorado.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Exits due to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner left Monday's game against the Dodgers due to an apparent injury, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. He took the loss after allowing two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out five across four innings prior to exiting.

According to Piecoro, Bumgarner was spotted in conversation with Arizona's coaching staff after finishing his fourth inning of work, though details of the injury remain unclear. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice. After being tagged with the loss, Bumgarner now owns a 4-3 record in nine starts.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Outstanding again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (4-2) earned the win over Miami on Tuesday by pitching seven scoreless innings. He allowed four hits and no walks while striking out nine.

The veteran southpaw completed an effective and efficient seven frames, throwing 62 of 84 pitches for strikes and finishing with a season-high nine punchouts. After giving up 17 earned runs through his first 13.2 innings this season, many wrote Bumgarner off, and he was a frequent drop in fantasy leagues. However, the 31-year-old has since turned things around dramatically, yielding only three earned runs over his subsequent five outings covering 30 innings of work. Bumgarner has notched a quality start in three of his past four contests and has managed to bring his season ERA down to a respectable 4.12. He'll look to keep the momentum rolling at home this weekend in a projected start against Washington.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Expected to take next turn
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (wrist) is expected to make his next start Tuesday at home against Miami, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Bumgarner was hit by a pitch on his right (non-throwing) wrist/hand during his last start, which led manager Torey Lovullo to remove him after six innings in what had been a dominant start for the left-hander. X-rays came back negative, and Bumgarner is feeling better, according to Lovullo.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Dealing with sore wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner was hit by a pitch on his right wrist during Thursday's game, Steve Gilbert of reports.

Bumgarner was hit on his non-throwing wrist in the second inning and continued to pitch well, but manager Torey Lovullo grew concerned and removed the pitcher for a pinch hitter in the seventh inning of a tie game. X-rays following the game showed no fracture, but Lovullo didn't want to continue without knowing the severity. At this point, Bumgarner is expected to take his next turn Tuesday at home against Miami.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Records quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (3-2) allowed one run on two hits while striking out seven over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Marlins. He didn't factor into the decision.

The lefty was sharp Thursday, with his only mistake sent over the fence for a homer by Miguel Rojas in the first inning. The 31-year-old threw 58 of his 85 pitches for strikes and now has a 4.91 ERA. Bumgarner has bounced back strong since his abysmal start to the year, having allowed one run or fewer in his past four outings.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Earns third straight win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (3-2) allowed one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out six across five innings to earn the win over the Rockies on Friday.

After coming off a stellar seven-inning hitless performance in his last start, Bumgarner managed to pick up another win Friday. The 31-year-old was 0-2 in his first three starts, allowing 17 earned runs on 22 hits and eight walks over 13.2 innings. In his last three starts, he's 3-0 while allowing only two earned runs and two walks over 17 innings. The only consistency this season is his 9.6 K/9.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Allows no hits in seven-inning win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (2-2) didn't allow any hits or walks while striking out seven across seven innings, earning the win Sunday over the Braves.

Bumgarner looked like his old self Sunday, holding Atlanta without a hit in Game 2 of the double header. The lone baserunner he allowed came in the second inning when Ozzie Albies reached on a throwing error by Nick Ahmed. Though he pitched a complete game, the southpaw's effort won't officially be recognized as a no-hitter since the contest went only seven innings. Bumgarner has allowed only two hits and one run in his last 12 innings compared to 22 hits and 17 runs in his first 13.2 innings. The veteran pitcher will be back on the mound Friday against the Rockies.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner's scheduled start Saturday against Atlanta was postponed due to inclement weather.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Settles down against Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (1-2) gave up one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five in five innings to earn the win against the Nationals on Sunday.

Bumgarner had struggled mightily in his first three starts of the year and gave up at least five runs in each of those outings. However, he worked with pitching coach Matt Herges to adjust the left-hander's mindset ahead of Sunday's start. The work apparently paid off, as Bumgarner allowed only four Nationals to reach base in the first five innings Sunday. Bumgarner has now posted an 8.68 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 18.2 innings to begin the season. He'll attempt to stay on the right track on the road against Atlanta on Saturday.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Works with pitching coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona pitching coach Matt Herges has been working with Bumgarner to adjust his "mindset" ahead of the left-hander's scheduled start Sunday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Bumgarner has been pounded through three outings and enters Sunday's start with an 11.20 ERA. As Herges described it, Bumgarner's focus during bullpen sessions is to use pitch-tracking data to make adjustments to specific pitches, but the coach wants him to focus on executing the next pitch. "He's elite in terms of the feel he has for what he's doing -- his body, his mechanics -- but I think the mindset is what we're working on, basically," Herges said. "If I had to just whittle it down, the mindset of making the pitch right here, right now." The coach wants Bumgarner to channel the pitcher he was in previous years and pointed to the final inning of his previous start Monday against the Athletics. In that inning, Bumgarner threw just three fastballs among 23 pitches.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Hit hard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bumgarner (0-2) struggled again Monday against the A's, allowing six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings to take the loss.

Bumgarner gave up runs in the first and the third to put the D-backs in a 3-0 hole. The wheels completely came off in the fifth, however, as he seemed to lose control of his command -- a walk, a single and a sac fly brought in two, then he hung a curveball that Matt Chapman smashed for a solo home run and hit a batter before being lifted. The 31-year-old owns an 11.20 ERA through three starts -- the worst among all qualified pitchers in the majors. He'll look to right the ship in his next outing against the Nationals on Sunday.
