Ouch. Bumgarner surrendered 10 hits, including a two-run homer to Hunter Dozier in the first inning. Not exactly what you want to see for someone’s final spring tuneup, but remember that he broke his pinkie finger when he was struck by a comebacker in his final Cactus League start last year. So things could have been worse here. The veteran southpaw has had an up-and-down spring and his stock hasn’t been lower in several years from a fantasy perspective, but he still has a chance to be a solid mixed league option.

<![CDATA[Can new depth pieces help the Giants improve on 2018?]]> Madison Bumgarner got hurt in his final start last spring. Whether it's next week or next month, the Giants will need to start dipping into their depth, and while this has been a remarkably quiet offseason, they have done a decent job of upgrading the back ends of the active and 40-man rosters.]]> 5457028 Tue, 19 Mar 2019 16:00:03 EDT CSN Bay Area <![CDATA[Bumgarner pitches into seventh vs. Royals]]> Madison Bumgarner allowed just one run over 6 2/3 innings in a strong Cactus League start on Sunday against the Royals.

An excellent start for Mad Bum, who followed up his strong outing on Tuesday with another one against the Royals. He didn't walk anyone, and he scattered five hits while striking out six. No, Bumgarner isn't going to be the dominant starter we saw a few seasons ago, but the southpaw is still a solid fantasy option, and it's worth keeping in mind that there's a decent chance he's going to be pitching for a (much) better team this summer. That could help.

<![CDATA[Madison Bumgarner pitched well in Tuesday's Cactus League victory]]> Madison Bumgarner pitched well in Tuesday's Cactus League victory over the Brewers, allowing two runs on seven hits over his five innings of work.

Bumgarner racked up four strikeouts on the night and didn't walk a batter. The Brewers loaded the bases against him with three straight singles to start the fourth inning, but the left-hander was able to escape trouble with a pop out and a pair of strikeouts. He wasn't so fortunate in the fifth, where Tyrone Taylor clubbed a two-run homer. Bumgarner has struggled this spring, registering an 8.25 ERA and 1.75 WHIP while striking out 12 over 12 innings.
