Madison Bumgarner was in midseason form against the Rockies, holding them scoreless over six innings in a 13-0 skunking Sunday.
Bumgarner served up just one hit, a double, and walked two while striking out five in the contest. For good measure, he also hit a solo homer in the seventh inning. The all-everything Giants ace is a half-notch below the upper echelon of fantasy starters, but he's still one of the best and will rightfully be taken in the early rounds of drafts in the next few weeks.

Madison Bumgarner yielded two earned runs over five innings in a Cactus League start Tuesday night versus the Cubs.

Bumgarner gave up no-doubt solo home runs to Ian Happ and Addison Russell but otherwise pitched pretty well, striking out seven batters without issuing a walk. The ace right-hander will start on Opening Day for the Giants on March 29 against the rival Dodgers. He's a second-tier fantasy starter leading into 2018, with the goods to jump back into the first tier.
Mar 13 - 11:44 PM

Madison Bumgarner let up five hits and two runs over 3 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Giants’ Cactus League tie with San Diego.

The left-hander tallied six punch-outs while issuing just one walk. Bumgarner didn’t allow a run in the first three innings but saw the wheels come off in the fourth. After striking out Eric Hosmer to begin the frame, Bumgarner proceeded to allow three straight hits including RBI doubles to Hunter Renfroe and Christian Villanueva. Bumgarner obviously didn’t have his best stuff today, but remember, it’s only March 7. He remains an elite fantasy starter and should be drafted as such.

Madison Bumgarner was perfect for three innings in his Cactus League start against the Reds on Friday.

He struck out four batters and didn't give up any hits or walks. It was a nice bounce-back effort after he allowed three runs in 1 2/3 innings in his first spring start. Nine of the 14 outs he's generated this spring have come via the strikeout. He's already been pegged as the Giants' starter on Opening Day.
Mar 2 - 6:32 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed four hits and three runs in 1 2/3 innings against the Cubs on Sunday, but also struck out five in his first start of the Cactus League season.

Bumgarner gave up a solo homer to Ian Happ in the first, and then was let down by his defense in the second as two runs scored on an infield single with an error by Joe Panik. Bumgarner is coming off a disappointing season in which he threw just 111 innings, but the 28-year-old southpaw still has some of the best stuff in baseball. He should be back to his dominating ways in 2018.
Feb 25 - 4:25 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy named Madison Bumgarner his Opening Day starter on Thursday.

No surprise here. Bumgarner made a successful recovery last year from a scary off-field shoulder injury and finished with a 3.32 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 101/20 K/BB ratio in 111 innings. Assuming all goes well this spring, he'll take the mound March 29 on the road against the rival Dodgers.
Feb 22 - 2:36 PM

Giants general manager Bobby Evans said Friday that the team hasn't engaged in any recent contract extension talks with Madison Bumgarner's agent.

The Giants have a $12 million club option on Bumgarner for 2019 before he reaches free agency. The left-hander is still just 28, but considering the mileage on his arm and last year's shoulder injury, the club might not want to rush into a long-term extension at this point. That said, if Bumgarner gets off to a nice start this season, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Giants try to reengage into talks.
Feb 9 - 2:01 PM

Giants exercised their $12 million club option on LHP Madison Bumgarner.

It's a formality. Bumgarner missed a large part of the season due to a shoulder injury suffered in a dirt bike accident, but he looked close to normal after making his return. The southpaw finished with a 3.32 ERA and 101/20 K/BB ratio in 111 innings over 17 starts. The Giants still hold a $12 million club option on their ace for 2019.

Madison Bumgarner has been shut down for the season.

In explaining the decision, Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters that Bumgarner has been through enough this year and said there is no reason to force the issue of having him make a start over the final weekend. This isn't about anything physical. Bumgarner finished 2017 on a positive note, yielding just one run over 7 2/3 innings last Saturday against the rival Dodgers. San Francisco will exercise his $12 million club option for 2018 shortly after the World Series.

Madison Bumgarner allowed just one earned run, five hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings to pick up the road win Saturday against the Dodgers.

Bumgarner improved to just 4-9 while lowering his ERA to 3.32. It's been a lost season for the San Francisco ace, as he missed a huge chunk due to that dirt bike accident earlier in the season. When he was able to return, the Giants were well out of the race and rarely providing any type of run support. He'll bounce back in 2018.

Madison Bumgarner allowed two earned runs while scattering seven hits with a walk and six strikeouts over seven innings in a loss against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Bumgarner was bested by Arizona's Zack Greinke, who made no mistakes. MadBum served up a two-run shot to All-Star Paul Goldschmidt and that was the difference in the 2-0 loss. Bumgarner will look to get untracked in his next scheduled start Friday against Jordan Lyles and the Padres.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 01:20:00 AM

Madison Bumgarner was rocked for 10 hits and six runs in five innings of work in a loss to Chicago on Sunday.

He walked one and struck out four. It's back-to-back starts for the normally ever-so-reliable Bumgarner. He gave up a homer to Jose Abreu, and didn't have his normally crisp command. It raises his ERA to 3.55 and drops his record to 3-and-8. His next scheduled start is Sunday in San Francisco against the Diamondbacks.

Madison Bumgarner had a rough afternoon in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, giving up five runs on five hits over his six frames.

Bumgarner fanned five and walked two on the afternoon. He struggled to keep the ball in the yard in this one, surrendering solo homers to Paul DeJong and Jose Martinez in the fourth inning and another to Harrison Bader in the fifth. On the offensive side, he did help his own cause though by clubbing his third home run of the season. He'll try to get back on track on Saturday against the White Sox in Chicago.

Madison Bumgarner (illness) will start Sunday against the Cardinals.

Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled outing Thursday due to the flu, but he got a couple extra days to rest and is now ready to go. Chris Stratton will pitch Monday in Colorado, provided he's not needed in relief Sunday. He'll be followed by Ty Blach, Johnny Cueto and Matt Moore.

Madison Bumgarner (flu) won't rejoin the Giants' rotation until Sunday at the earliest.

Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled start on Thursday and apparently has been under the weather for a few days now. Hopefully the illness passes and he's able to take the hill on Sunday.
