Diamondbacks News: Madison Bumgarner Signs 5-Year Contract with Arizona


It’s the end of an era for baseball. Free agent starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner and the Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to a 5 year, $85M deal on Sunday, ending MadBum’s time with the San Francisco Giants.

The Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers were reportedly in on the three-time World Series champion, but he ultimately was swayed by the additional season Arizona offered.

Bumgarner tossed 207.2 innings of 3.90 ball in 2019, a career-high in ERA. However, he made more than 30 starts (34) for the first time since 2016.

The four-time All-Star joins a Diamondbacks team that went 88-74 last season, placing second in the National League West. He’ll lead a young but intriguing starting rotation that lost ace Zack Greinke at the 2019 trade deadline.
