Giants signal likely Madison Bumgarner exit by cutting ties with Kevin Pillar

  Giants signal likely Madison Bumgarner exit by cutting ties with Kevin Pillar The Giants severed ties with their co-home run leader, RBI leader and most inspirational player. That doesn’t bode well for fans hoping the Giants will bring back Madison Bumgarner. In explaining why popular center fielder Kevin Pillar wasn’t tendered a contract Monday, president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said it wasn’t about finances as much as looking deeper into the future and opening doors to younger players.

The Diamondbacks landed a frontline starter to replace Zack Greinke on Sunday, agreeing to terms with left-hander Madison Bumgarner on a five-year, $85 million deal.

The contract includes $15 million in deferred money. It will rank as the second-largest deal in franchise history, behind only the $206.5 million deal Greinke signed four years ago.

Bumgarner, 30, gives the Diamondbacks a proven starter to slot in atop their rotation. In parts of 11 seasons with the San Francisco Giants – he reached the big leagues shortly after his 20th birthday in 2009 – he has logged a 3.13 ERA in 1,846 innings.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and left-hander Madison Bumgarner have reached an agreement on a five - year , million deal , according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Injuries limited Bumgarner to 38 starts over the 2017-18 seasons, but in 2019 he recorded his seventh career 200-inning season

He is best known for his postseason heroics, including allowing just one run in 36 career innings in the World Series, helping the Giants win titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

He is coming off something of a down year, in which he posted a 3.90 ERA in 207 2/3 innings. It was, at least, a return to health for him. He missed time each of the previous two seasons, first in a dirt-bike accident in 2017, then when he broke a bone in his pitching hand after being hit by a line drive in 2018.

Since Bumgarner declined a qualifying offer in November, the Diamondbacks will forfeit their second-round pick to sign him.

After trading Greinke in July and cutting ties with pitcher Taijuan Walker and outfielder Steven Souza Jr. earlier this month, the Diamondbacks had more than $30 million to spend this winter. The club has even more coming off the books next year.

The move gives the Diamondbacks rotation depth, and it would not be a surprise if they traded from it. As it stands, Bumgarner would lead a group that includes Robbie Ray, Luke Weaver, Zac Gallen, Mike Leake and Merrill Kelly.

Ray’s name, however, has popped up in trade rumors repeatedly since the middle of the summer. He has one year to go before reaching free agency and is expected to make close to $11 million in arbitration.

My word, the front offices have been busy. After the top three free agents went off the board during this year’s Winter Meetings bacchanal, you might have thought there’d be a bit of a hangover. Nope. All told, seven of my top-ten free agents have inked contracts. The next phase of the offseason is upon us, and we’ve had our very first marquee trade. Christmas is still a week away. Jesus Christ, y’all.
