Madison Bumgarner fired six shutout innings in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Mets.
Nice work by Bumgarner, who scattered six hits, struck out seven and walked three over the course of his time on the mound. While he has pitched inconsistently in places through his first six starts, Mad-Bum still holds a 3.03 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45/13 K/BB ratio. If he can move that WHIP closer to his career mark of 1.12, it would almost certainly help to ease some of the ups and downs he has experienced thus far. A home start against the Rockies shows next on his schedule. May 1 - 4:47 PM

Madison Bumgarner yielded two runs in 6 2/3 innings and struck out nine in a defeat of the Padres on Monday.

Bumgarner has fanned a whopping 38 batters in 29 2/3 innings to date. It's not helping him work deep into games; he's finished seven innings once in five starts and he's yet to pitch into the eighth. Fortunately, the Giants have a strong bullpen to preserve those leads when he departs.

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

Bumgarner didn't make many mistakes in this one, but the 0-2 fastball that Welington Castillo drilled for a two-run homer in the seventh qualified as a big one. It was still the best he's looked so far this year, even if he fell to 1-2. He allowed five hits, walked one and struck out eight.

Madison Bumgarner was charged with seven runs -- four earned -- in five-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

The Giants committed three errors behind Bumgarner, two of them by Kelby Tomlinson, who was making a rare appearance at shortstop with Brandon Crawford hurting. Bumgarner's other problem was Enrique Hernandez, who homered twice and doubled off him. If only Crawford had been in the field and Hernandez had been on the bench, it could have been a much different night for Bumgarner. He finished up with seven strikeouts and one walk in the outing.
Apr 16 - 2:43 AM

Madison Bumgarner fired six innings of one-run ball Saturday in a no-decision against the Dodgers.

He also slugged a solo shot off Clayton Kershaw in the bottom of the second inning -- Bumgarner's second career home run against the Dodgers ace. Bumgarner struck out eight, issued just one walk, and scattered six hits -- three of them singles. He left the game with the Giants leading, but closer Santiago Casilla blew the save in the ninth and Los Angeles wound up winning in extras. Bumgarner will take on the Dodgers again next week.

Madison Bumgarner got the win Monday as the Giants pounded the Brewers on Opening Day in Milwaukee.

Bumgarner was getting over the flu (and a rough spring training) and he didn't look like himself on the Miller Park mound, surrendering three earned runs on five walks and five hits. But the Giants' offense went off for 12 runs -- five against Wily Peralta -- in a loud season-opening victory. Bumgarner gave up home runs to Scooter Gennett, a left-handed-hitter, and Jonathan Villar, who had just two homers last year in 53 games with Houston. Look for the big southpaw to show better this weekend in a duel with Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Apr 4 - 5:58 PM

Madison Bumgarner was being treated for flu symptoms on Sunday.

He is going to make his Opening Day start Monday in Milwaukee, though Giants manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged that he'll be watching his ace closely. Bumgarner didn't have the sharpest spring and could fatigue easily in his Opening Day start, but he's a rare breed of workhorse and season-long fantasy owners should absolutely stay the course. Those playing DFS games might want to make a switch.
Apr 4 - 12:33 PM

Madison Bumgarner acknowledged he's been struggling with his mechanics this spring.

Bumgarner turned in a clunker on Saturday (2 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER) but said his struggles had nothing to do with his recent oblique and foot injuries. "My delivery was terrible," he said. "My timing is off, and my rhythm." Bumgarner said he began noticing the flaw in his delivery over the winter and is still tinkering with his mechanics. Nobody is expecting Bumgarner to be in midseason form on March 19. Fantasy owners shouldn't be overly concerned.

Madison Bumgarner (foot, oblique) was knocked around in his return to the mound Saturday, allowing five runs on seven hits over 2 2/3 innings against the A's.

Bumgarner, who is dealing with a sore left foot and a sore right oblique, gave up a home run among his seven hits allowed. He struck out four. What does it mean? Nothing, likely. But owners would surely like to see a better showing from the southpaw before the team heads west for Opening Day.
Mar 19 - 7:35 PM

Madison Bumgarner (foot, oblique) said Thursday that he's on track to return to Cactus League action on Saturday.

The Giants said that the southpaw would miss 1-2 starts with a sore left foot and sore right oblique, and it sounds like it will be just one outing. "We’re still taking it one day at a time, but as far as I know, we’re still on track for Saturday," said Bumgarner. "It’s tough because it’s not a lot of fun to get treatment and get worked on. If you’re going to miss some time, you might as well make it as short as you can by taking care of it."
Mar 18 - 11:50 AM

Madison Bumgarner (foot, ribs) could start Saturday.

Bumgarner was administered a cortisone injection in his sore left foot earlier this week and it has apparently done the trick. He's also been feeling some oblique discomfort since his last Cactus League outing, but an MRI taken over the weekend showed no structural damage. The ace left-hander should be fully ready to rock come Opening Day.
Mar 16 - 7:03 PM

Madison Bumgarner will miss 1-2 Cactus League starts with neuroma in his left foot and rib cage pain on his right side.

The good news is that neither ailment is considered serious and the left-hander fully expects to be ready for Opening Day. Bumgarner was given a cortisone shot in his foot and an MRI showed no damage to his oblique. It's obviously not ideal for the ace to miss an outing or two so close to the opener, but he should be fine.
Mar 13 - 2:34 PM

Making his spring debut, Madison Bumgarner gave up one run in two innings Friday against the Reds.

He struck out three and the only hit he gave up was a solo homer to Eugenio Suarez. There was some concern about Bumgarner’s heavy 2014 workload going into last year, but he still ended up with an excellent 2.93 ERA over 32 starts to go along with the best strikeout and walk rates of his career. He figures to be one of the first handful of starters off the board again in mixed league drafts this spring.
Mar 4 - 6:03 PM

Madison Bumgarner isn't worried about his contract status and said his next deal will come in "due time."

Despite being one of the best pitchers in baseball over the last few years, Bumgarner is actually the lowest-paid starter in the Giants' rotation. If the Giants exercise both of his club options, he might not hit free agency until 2020. "If everything goes the way I want and what I work for, then that'll come along in due time," said Bumgarner. "I'm not at all worried about that." The 26-year-old left-hander has already been named San Francisco's Opening Day starter.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed the obvious on Saturday, tabbing Madison Bumgarner as his Opening Day starter.

The announcement comes as no surprise as the 26-year-old is the Giants' ace and one of the top hurlers in the league. He owns a terrific 3.04 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 through his first 1171 major league innings and looks poised to get even better in 2016.
