The Cincinnati Reds are among the teams interested in starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner. Current manager David Bell worked previously in the Giants front office. The Braves, Twins, Angels, Padres, Yankees and Phillies are other possibilities for the veteran southpaw, and he could sign before the winter meetings kick off next week. Injuries are now a concern with the aging left-hander, but he was still pretty solid in 2019, going 9-9 with a 3.90 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 8.8 K/9 in 207 2/3 innings over 34 starts with the Giants. Moving to a hitter-friendly park like Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati may not be the best landing spot for Bumgarner, but he should still remain relevant in all mixed leagues next season.
The St. Louis Cardinals are a new potential bidder for the services of starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner, according to a source. The Twins, Reds, White Sox and Braves have also been linked to the veteran left-hander, and he could sign a deal before the winter meetings start next week in San Diego. The Cardinals rotation is already in good shape with Jack Flaherty, Miles Mikolas, Dakota Hudson and Adam Wainwright in the mix, so adding MadBum would be a cherry on top. Bumgarner is expected to land a deal worth at least $100 million. He's no longer the dominant ace he was in his prime in San Francisco, but Bumgarner still has some years left if he can stay healthy. St. Louis would be a fine landing spot for his fantasy value as well.
Starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner's market looks to be just as robust as starting pitcher Zack Wheeler's at the moment. One executive predicts that both starters will sign before next week's winter meetings in San Diego. Teams such as the Phillies, White Sox, Reds, Astros, Angels, Blue Jays, Twins, Yankees, Rangers and Padres could all be interested in the veteran left-hander. MadBum is coming off a season in which he went 9-9 with a 3.90 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 203 strikeouts in 207 2/3 innings over 34 starts with the Giants. The 30-year-old isn't as dominant as he was earlier in his career, but he still gets plenty of swings and misses and would be an excellent veteran addition to any team looking to bolster their rotation. Bumgarner should still be relevant in all fantasy formats in 2020, but his outlook will depend on his landing spot.
The Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins are among the heaviest suitors for starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner now that Zack Wheeler has agreed with the Phillies, according to sources. The Yankees are involved to some extent, too. Veteran lefty Cole Hamels also inked a deal with the Braves on Wednesday. Bumgarner's market has been very hot of late, and most believe he'll sign with a team before next week's winter meetings. Chicago is looking for two potential starters to boost their rotation this winter, and MadBum would be an excellent veteran presence on a young team. The lefty went 9-9 with a 3.90 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 34 starts last year with San Fran. A hitter's park in Chicago would be a clear downgrade over the pitcher-friendly environment that he's been pitching in his entire career.
The San Francisco Giants non-tendered outfielder Kevin Pillar on Monday, making him a free agent. The 30-year-old veteran hit a combined .259/.287/.432 with 21 home runs, 83 runs, 88 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 161 games with the Blue Jays and Giants in 2019. He spent the majority of his time with San Fran, playing in 156 games while hitting .264 with all 21 of his long balls. Pillar can go on fantasy relevant stretches with his bat when he gets hot, but his slumps can be debilitating for a fantasy squad as well. His defensive prowess in center field is his strength, but he may be nothing more than a single-universe outfielder for what's left of his career.
