Examining Madison Bumgarner's value and strategic use of no-trade clause

Examining Madison Bumgarner's value and strategic use of no-trade clause One of the biggest names expected to be available at this year's trade deadline is San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner. The 29-year-old left-hander has not been able to work out a contract extension with his original club, making it very likely he will be traded before he reaches free agency this winter. The only circumstance that might change that is San Francisco playing itself into contention. Based on the early returns this season, that doesn't seem very likely. Only the Orioles, Royals and Marlins are farther from first place in their respective divisions.

Via Elias research, Bumgarner 's 11 strikeouts were the most by a Giants pitcher on Opening Day since the mound moved to its current distance from home Bumgarner also added a sacrifice fly in his first at-bat to finish with five RBI, matching Estes, Dave Koslo, Hal Schumacher and Jack Scott for the

No one knows exactly how long Madison Bumgarner will remain with the Giants, but he continues to be an intriguing and entertaining show for fans still venturing to China Basin to see their scuffling team.

Yasiel Puig and Madison Bumgarner reignite rivalry with more bat flips and trash talk

Yasiel Puig and Madison Bumgarner reignite rivalry with more bat flips and trash talk Madison Bumgarner vs. Yasiel Puig is the gift that keeps on giving. On Sunday afternoon, the new Cincinnati Reds outfielder Puig came out way ahead with a giant homer and a bat flip to match while (again) looking like the bigger person. Bumgarner had kept the upper hand for most of the players’ recent rivalry, holding Puig hitless in his last 11 at-bats dating back to 2016. However, the lefty challenged Puig with a first-pitch inside fastball top open the sixth inning, which Puig turned on and launched deep over the left-field fence.

Madison Kyle Bumgarner (born August 1, 1989), commonly known by his nickname, "MadBum", is an American professional baseball pitcher for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Daily Recap: Madison Bumgarner threw seven frames of three-hit ball and the Giants won their seventh straight Fall Classic game. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves ; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado

Bumgarner gave up two runs in six innings in Thursday’s matinee, putting the Giants in position to beat Atlanta and split a four-game series, but the Braves forced extra innings and won 5-4 in 13 to take the series three games to one.

BOX SCORE: BRAVES 5, GIANTS 4 (13)

Austin Riley’s opposite-field single off Reyes Moronta scored Dansby Swanson with the deciding run. Kevin Pillar singled with one out in the home half of the 13th, but Mac Williamson struck out (for the fifth time) and Donovan Solano grounded out to end the 4-hour, 21-minute game.

He might not be vintage Bumgarner, but the lefty still can get a big out when it’s necessary. On his 102nd and final pitch, a cutter down and in, he struck out Charlie Culberson with two aboard to end the sixth inning.

Opinion: For Giants, now comes the painful rebuild. Start with trading Bumgarner

Opinion: For Giants, now comes the painful rebuild. Start with trading Bumgarner The Giants, in last place in the NL West, are in complete rebuild mode. Everyone, including Madison Bumgarner, is available at the trade deadline.

Bumgarner ( 13 -8) allowed three runs over seven uneven innings. He struck out five and walked two. San Francisco's four-time All-Star pitched in Freddie Freeman and Gordon Beckham homered for Atlanta. Ender Inciarte doubled, tripled and scored twice, but the last-place Braves have lost 13 of 18.

August 13 — Giants acquire outfielder José Guillén from the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named later and cash[ 13 ]. The Giants would face the Braves in the NLDS starting October 7. Manager Bruce Bochy then called on starter Madison Bumgarner , who survived two rocky innings

That kept the Giants ahead 3-2, and Tyler Austin’s pinch homer made it 4-2, but Tony Watson coughed up a two-run, game-tying homer to Riley in the eighth. It was Riley’s fifth homer in his career, which is nine games old.

The Giants put runners in scoring position in the ninth and 10th innings, but Buster Posey grounded out to end the ninth and Williamson struck out to finish the 10th.

With Bumgarner in the final season of his contract, he’s an obvious candidate to be dealt before the July 31 trade deadline. If the Giants are going nowhere in the standings, management reasonably could conclude it’s wiser to move him for young players and get this rebuilding process under way.

Until further notice, he’s property of the Giants, and that means fans can continue enjoying the presence of their three-time champion and World Series legend.

Bumgarner opened with three scoreless innings. Ozzie Albies’ fourth-inning single scored Atlanta’s first run, and Tyler Flowers hit Bumgarner’s first pitch in the fifth for a homer.

Evaluating the Giants' trade chips as they prepare to sell

Evaluating the Giants' trade chips as they prepare to sell The floundering San Francisco Giants are ready to start selling under the management of new president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, and will reportedly listen to offers for their veteran players. 

Giants starter Madison Bumgarner fractured his left hand after being a hit by a line drive in Friday's Spring Training game against the Royals. He is expected to miss six to eight weeks, according to ESPN.

10/29/14: Madison Bumgarner continues his postseason dominance, pitching five scoreless innings in relief and earning a save in Game 7. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves ; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado

The Giants’ rotation isn’t exactly a crew of innings eaters. Only Bumgarner seems programmed to reach the latter part of games. Since his seven-inning start April 13, no Giants starter has experienced a seven-inning start over 33 games.

That’s the longest drought in the majors this year and the Giants franchise’s longest in 100 years, according to Stats, LLC. In other words, if it’s not Bumgarner reaching the late innings, it’s nobody.

On Thursday, Bumgarner got through six innings for the 10th time in 11 starts and by far is the staff’s innings-pitched leader (68). Despite his 4.10 ERA, he continues to keep the Giants close. They would have won each of his past five starts if the bullpen threw more zeros.

The third time through the lineup has proven to be a rough go for a lot of starters, but Bumgarner had no problems Thursday. He retired Ronald Acuña Jr. on a grounder and struck out Swanson to end the fifth, then quickly retired Freddie Freeman (flyout) and Josh Donalson (K) to begin the sixth.

Bumgarner gave up a bloop single to Riley and walked Albies on a 3-2 curve. With the count 1-2 on Culberson, Posey and second baseman Joe Panik met on the mound to chat with Bumgarner, who responded with his cutter that Culberson swung through.

After the Braves scored off Watson, Will Smith, Sam Dyson and Trevor Gott threw scoreless innings. Smith pitched the ninth and struck out his first batter, setting a team record — it was his 12th straight out by virtue of a strikeout.

The Giants scored their first two runs in the second inning on a Kevin Gausman wild pitch and Solano sacrifice fly. In the fifth, Panik doubled and scored on Steven Duggar’s single.

Soroka wins 6th straight decision, Braves beat Tigers.
Mike Soroka won his sixth straight decision and showed some baserunning flair, Freddie Freeman and Austin Riley each hit a two-run homer, and the Atlanta Braves snapped a three-game skid with a 10-5 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. BOX SCORE: BRAVES 10, TIGERS 5 Soroka (6-1) scuffled a bit, at least compared to the high standard he set this season, allowing season highs of three runs and seven hits and striking out five in 6 2/3 innings. He began the game with a 1.07 ERA that, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, was the third-best since 1913 by a pitcher 21 or younger in his first eight starts.
