Olney Suggests Giants Could Trade Then Re-Sign Madison Bumgarner 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Mar 27, 2019 4:25 pm

The future of Madison Bumgarner with the San Francisco Giants will be one of MLB\'s most interesting topics this season. Bumgarner will be a free agent at the end of the 2019 season and his value is uncertain given his drop in production compared to his postseason pedigree.

Bumgarner has appeared in 16 games in the postseason, starting 14, and the Giants are 13-3 in those appearances; he has a 2.11 ERA in 102⅓ innings. But Bumgarner\'s fastball has concerned evaluators as he\'s given up an OPS of .926 with the pitch.

Buster Olney suggests the Giants could consider trading Bumgarner near the deadline for prospects and still pursue signing him back in free agency given his history with the franchise. Giants owner Charles Johnson is said to consider Bumgarner an absolute favorite.
