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. Nov 6 - 2:38 PM

Date:

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.
Sep 26 - 8:05 PM

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.
Sep 24 - 2:28 AM

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.
Sep 17 - 1:20 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.
Sep 10 - 5:41 PM

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.
Sep 3 - 7:03 PM

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.
Aug 31 - 9:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner was scratched from his scheduled start against the Cardinals on Thursday due to flu-like symptoms.

Matt Cain will start in his place. Those in daily leagues, feel free to fire up those Cardinals bats at what is sure to be much lower ownership than they should be. Bumgarner should be fine to return in a day or two.
Aug 31 - 6:48 PM

Madison Bumgarner took a tough loss after allowing two runs over seven innings Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

The runs came on homers from A.J. Pollock and J.D. Martinez. Bumgarner has to be pretty use to getting no support at this point; he's now 3-6 with a 2.85 ERA this season. He's turned in quality starts in five of his six losses, allowing two runs or fewer in four of them.
Aug 27 - 12:33 AM

Madison Bumgarner was terrific in a no-decision against the Phillies on Sunday, racking up seven strikeouts over six innings of one-run ball.

Bumgarner allowed just four hits and a walk on the afternoon. The only blemish on his day was an RBI double by Pedro Florimon in the second inning. He departed in line for his fourth victory of the season (after his own go-ahead RBI single in the fifth), but the Giants' bullpen was unable to oblige. Bumgarner will bring a 2.87 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 74/14 K/BB ratio into Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.
Aug 20 - 7:29 PM

Madison Bumgarner gave up four runs over six innings in a victory Tuesday against the Marlins.

Bumgarner got some rare run support tonight, as the Giants scored more than three runs for just the third time in his 11 starts this year. He's now 3-5 with a 2.99 ERA. He allowed a total of two runs in his previous two wins.
Aug 15 - 11:09 PM

Madison Bumgarner allowed one run on four hits over seven innings in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Cubs.

Bumgarner was up to his accustomed brilliance in this one, striking out seven and walking just one. The only run to score on his watch came when Albert Almora Jr. bopped a solo home run off the ace in the third inning. Mad-Bum finished up his afternoon's work having thrown an economical 92 pitches (69 strikes). He has surrendered just four runs in his last four starts (26 innings) and will try to keep this roll going in a road start against the Marlins next time he takes to the mound.
Aug 9 - 7:10 PM

Madison Bumgarner fell to 1-5 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Diamondbacks.

If he hasn't already, Bumgarner is going to be lobbying Bruce Bochy to hit higher in the lineup in his starts. Tonight's game was the fourth time in his nine starts this season that the Giants scored one or no runs. They've totaled just two in two others. That's what it takes to produce a 1-5 record along with a 2.88 ERA.
Aug 5 - 1:18 AM

Madison Bumgarner was terrific in Sunday's no-decision against the Dodgers, allowing just five hits and a walk over seven shutout frames.

The star southpaw fanned seven on the night. He has continued to improve each time out and looked to be in vintage form against one of the most potent offenses in all of baseball. He'll carry a 2.92 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 49/9 K/BB ratio into Friday's showdown against the Diamondbacks.
