Giants GM Bobby Evans said he told Madison Bumgarner's representatives "we're ready when you're ready" to talk about a contract extension.
Bumgarner signed an extremely team-friendly deal with the Giants in 2012 before he hit salary arbitration, and he is due just $11.5 million in 2017 (with $12 million options for both 2018 and 2019). Giants ownership will do right by baseball's ultimate workhorse after what was quietly the best year of his career numbers-wise. Evans said he has already talked to Bumgarner personally.

Madison Bumgarner served up a three-run homer to counterpart Jake Arrieta and lasted just five frames Monday, but the Giants won 6-5 in the 13th inning of NLDS Game 3.

There didn't seem to be the same hop on MadBum's pitches in this one, as he gave up seven hits and walked one, needing 101 pitches to get through his five innings. He did at least limit the damage after the big mistake to Arrieta in the second inning, and the Giants battled back twice to eventually win in extras. He wound only be on two days' rest, but it's possible Bumgarner could be available in relief for a potential Game 5.

Madison Bumgarner was brilliant in Wednesday's 3-0 Wild Card Game win over the Mets, firing a complete game shutout.

Bumgarner didn't quite match Noah Syndergaard's 10 strikeouts -- he finished with six strikeouts of his own -- but he outlasted Thor with his nine shutout frames. This was the first time that two opposing pitchers tossed at least seven shutout innings in a winner-take-all game since Jack Morris and John Smoltz achieved that feat in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. Bumgarner finished out having thrown a season-high 119 pitches (78 strikes). The game would turn on a three-run home run by Conor Gillaspie in the top of the ninth inning, after which Mad-Bum dispatched the Mets without issue in the bottom of the frame. As things stand right now, he could be in line to face Jake Arrieta in Game 3 of the NLDS, which begins on Friday.

Madison Bumgarner will start for the Giants in Wednesday's Wild Card Game versus the Mets.

Manager Bruce Bochy surely agonized over this decision. Bumgarner, of course, had a legendary 2014 postseason in the Giants' World Series run, and that included a shutout of the Pirates in the Wild Card Game. The lefty is also coming off arguably his best regular season yet, having put up a 2.74 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 251/54 K/BB ratio over 226 2/3 innings. He'll face a stiff challenge in Noah Syndergaard and the red-hot Mets offense.

Madison Bumgarner pitched 7 1/3 innings and allowed three runs in a win over the Dodgers on Friday.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with a double against him, but there were no fireworks in this one. Bumgarner probably ends the regular season 15-9 with a 2.74 ERA. The probably is needed since the Giants could opt to try him in relief Sunday if they get desperate. With more run support, Bumgarner might have been in the Cy Young mix in the wide open race. Still, he probably needed at least another two or three wins to sway voters.
Oct 1 - 1:48 AM

Madison Bumgarner escaped with a no-decision after allowing five runs in six innings but the Giants went on to beat the Padres 9-6 in extra innings on Saturday.

He put up zeroes in the first three innings but gave up a solo homer in the fourth, a two-run homer in the fifth and another two-run homer in the sixth. He has given up a career-high 26 homers this season, but his home runs allowed rate is still better than league average. Today he surrendered only one hit that didn't leave the yard. He punched out five and issued one free pass. He helped himself at the plate by going 2-for-3 and scoring a run. The five runs allowed were the most he has given up in a game this year. His 2.71 ERA in 219 1/3 innings is still spectacular even after the poor outing. He is likely to get one more start in the regular season.
Sep 25 - 1:36 AM

Madison Bumgarner struck out 10 in seven scoreless innings Monday in a no-decision against the Dodgers.

Bumgarner finished the seventh by touching off a benches-clearing incident with Yasiel Puig, repeatedly telling Puig "don't look at me" while at the same time staring him down. Before that happened, it seemed likely that Bumgarner would be back out for the eighth; he finished the seventh at 97 pitches. Instead, he was done and the bullpen blew the game in the ninth.
Sep 20 - 1:38 AM

Madison Bumgarner yielded three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Padres.

San Francisco just got swept by Paul Clemens, Clayton Richard, and Luis Perdomo. Bumgarner was tagged for seven hits, including RBI singles in the sixth and seventh innings by Alex Dickerson and Luis Sardinas. He struck out just five and walked two. Chalk it up to a bad day. A road start against the rival Dodgers is next.
Sep 14 - 6:44 PM

Madison Bumgarner racked up 10 strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in Saturday's victory over the Cubs.

Bumgarner scattered five hits on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. He allowed the Cubs to scratch out single runs in the fifth and sixth innings, but was dominant the rest of the ballgame. He now owns a 2.51 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 217/49 K/BB ratio over 193 2/3 innings on the year. He'll look to strengthen his candidacy for his first Cy Young Award when he does battle against the Diamondbacks in Arizona on Friday.
Sep 3 - 5:54 PM

Madison Bumgarner picked up his 13th victory of the season on Sunday, limiting the Braves to three runs on five hits over seven frames.

The All-Star southpaw walked two and struck out five on the afternoon. Most of the damage against him came on a two-run blast from Freddie Freeman in the sixth inning. He hasn't been at his best in his last three outings, but still manages to find a way to give his team a chance to win each and every time he takes the ball. He'll carry a sparkling 2.49 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Cubs in Chicago.
Aug 28 - 7:54 PM

Madison Bumgarner fell to 12-8 in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering five runs on nine hits over five innings.

Bumgarner has now surrendered nine runs over his last 10 innings in what has been something of a miniature slump. On Tuesday, the Dodgers burned him for solitary runs in each of the first three innings before knocking him out after scoring two runs in the fifth. Fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned, here, as Bumgarner still holds a 2.44 ERA and 1.05 WHIP for the season. He will look to rebound in a home start against the Braves next time out.
Aug 24 - 2:23 AM

Madison Bumgarner was victimized by a Justin Ruggiano grand slam in Thursday's win over the Mets.

Bumgarner managed just five innings in the contest, scattering six hits while walking three and striking out six. He ran into trouble in the fourth inning, loading the bases before Justin Ruggiano unloaded them with a grand slam. Mad-Bum didn't allow another run in the game and he received more than enough offensive support -- and whacked a two-run homer to help his own cause -- to pick up the win. This wasn't his sharpest performance, but he will carry a smooth 2.25 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 195/46 K/BB ratio (175 2/3 innings) into a road date with the rival Dodgers next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 19 - 1:50 AM

Madison Bumgarner struck out eight batters in seven scoreless innings to beat the Orioles 6-2 on Saturday.

He yielded three hits and three walks but no runs. His record improves to 11-7 but he deserves better as his 2.11 ERA proves. His 189 strikeouts in 170 2/3 innings rank third in the majors. He has been a consistently dominant pitcher every single year since he broke into the league in 2009.
Aug 14 - 12:59 AM

Madison Bumgarner fell to 10-7 despite tossing an eight-inning complete game with one run allowed in Sunday's 1-0 loss to the Nationals.

Mad-Bum was brilliant in this one, but he surrendered a seventh-inning solo home run to Wilson Ramos and that one mistake was enough to saddle him with the loss against Tanner Roark and friends. The ace southpaw allowed just one other hit on the afternoon, a double by Anthony Rendon. He finished the game with seven strikeouts against two walks. Bumgarner will try to return to his winning ways when he carries his 2.20 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 181/40 K/BB (163 2/3 innings) into a home showdown with the Orioles next time out.
Aug 7 - 6:02 PM

Madison Bumgarner had a rare clunker Tuesday, getting pelted for eight runs -- four earned -- on 10 hits and two walks over five innings in a loss to the Phillies.

Yuck. What looked like such a promising matchup turned out to be anything but that, as MadBum served up a pair of home runs and had trouble avoiding the barrel of the bat all night. He'll try to wipe this one from his memory and bounce back this weekend against the Nationals.
